Gunflint Mail sled dog race
Date: January 8, 2022 - January 9, 2022
Time: All Day
Location: Trail Center Lodge
The very northeastern tip of Minnesota is Cook County, a land blessed with stunning beauty. We have Gichigami, glacially sculpted boreal forests, an immense network of lakes and streams plus cold weather and snow. We are blessed with cold weather and snow here. It is in this land of remote beauty that dog sledding became a way of life. And it is this way of life that we celebrate with the Gunflint Mail Run Sled Dog Race.
The Gunflint Mail Run Sled Dog Race is a continuous race consisting of two legs of equal distance, separated by a mandatory layover. There are two classes in the race: a 12-dog, 100-mile race and an 8-dog, 65-mile race. Races will start and finish at Trail Center, with a rest break halfway through (also at Trail Center). Mushers, Volunteers and Spectators always welcome! Vet check on Friday, races all day Saturday, awards on Sunday.
The Gunflint Mail Run is in cooperation with and under a Special Use Permit from the U.S. Forest Service.
