2022 Race will be held on February 5th



After months of discussion by the Wilderness Sled Dog Racing Association Board of Directors, a difficult decision was made to cancel the Wilderness Sled Dog Race due to the struggle with Covid restrictions. The board sited that there are too many challenges with keeping volunteers, racers and Leisure Life Resort Staff safe during these difficult time s for all!

We will look forward to the summer months when we will meet again to start planning The Wilderness Race for 2022…

In the meantime be safe and enjoy this most beautiful time of the year!

Many thanks to everyone for all the support of this event!
