The 2016 Plum Creek

Wilderness Sled Dog Race

Greenville, Maine

The 10th annual Plum Creek Wilderness Sled Dog Race fell victim to this winter's yo-yo weather patterns. The Greenville event was originally scheduled for February 6 and postponed to February 27 after heavy rainfall
and warm temperatures melted away prime trail
conditions just a few days before the race date. But after reassessing trails and with the upcoming weather pattern , organizers were forced to cancel the 2016 race and associated activities entirely.

The Wilderness Race governing board is committed to running a safe event for everyone and the trail inspection found that conditions were inadequate to safely run dog teams on the 70-mile and 30-mile race courses. With no significant snow accumulation predicted, trails were not expected to improve much in the near future.

The decision to cancel was made with great regret, and the race committee would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has worked hard all year to plan and prepare for the 2016 Wilderness Sled Dog Race.

The race is organized by the Wilderness Sled Dog Racing Association, a Greenville non-profit.
For more information, visit the race website, email, or call Bethany at Greenville Town Office at 207-695-2421.

We would like to thank the following sponsors for your continued support of the Wilderness Sled Dog Races.

Thank you again for your cooperation and we hope to see you next year, February 4, 2017.
