Plum Creek Wilderness

Race Update!


The Wilderness Sled Dog Committee would like to
share news of a change in the format of the
Plum Creek Wilderness Sled Dog Race that will
be held February 7, 2015.


There are many challenges that we have been
faced with to ensure that we host a safe and
enjoyable 100 Mile race for everyone therefore,
we have decided to modify the 100 mile race and shorten it to a 60 mile race that will still continue through lands owned by our partners, Plum Creek Timber Company and Appalachian Mountain Club.
For the 60 mile mushers this trail will be
approximately 66 miles.


The race will travel out of Leisure Life Resort on
Lily Bay Road in Greenville, through Moosehead
Riders Snowmobile trails to outer Scammon Road
and out to what we know as the 100 Mile Wilderness. The Trail will travel along trails maintained by
AMC and out to West Branch Pond Camps and
return to Leisure Life Resort to a welcoming Bonfire
and spectators. We will celebrate the evening with
an awards ceremony and dinner at Leisure Life
upon the return of the Sled dogs and their
Musher friends.


Although we are disheartened by the change
of the length of the race, we realize the importance
of running the safest race that we can for the
Greenville area. We are very thankful for
supporters like the American Legion,
Moosehead Riders Snowmobile Club,
Maine Forest Service, Plum Creek, Appalachian Mountain Club, Town of Greenville and our many volunteers that continue to make this the best race
in the area.


Look for our upcoming schedule of events which
will include a 30 mile race as well as many family activities for everyone to enjoy February 7, 2015
at Leisure Life Resort.


The 30 and 60 Mile race rules and entry forms can be found on the rules & forms page on the website
