The Wilderness Sled Dog Racing Association sends out a huge "Thank You" to everyone and every business that supported this event on February 5th.

The Sled Dog Races were a huge success bringing many visitors for a great day in the Moosehead Lake Area. Dogs, mushers and volunteers all braved the frigid temperatures, a mountain of snow and white out conditions throughout the day all with a smile on their faces.

It could not have happened without all the support from our awesome community business partners and the many volunteers that come from here and away!  This organization appreciates your commitment very much to this event.

The races would never happen without all of you!

Many Thanks

Sincerely, 

The Wilderness Sled Dog Racing Association

A 501c3 non-profit organization

The Wilderness race starts and finishes at Leisure Life Resort in Greenville Maine and traverses through the heart of Maine’s 100-mile wilderness area.

The 70-mile race travels on both snowmobile and non-motorized trails on Weyerhaeuser and the Appalachian Mountain Club property passing through West Branch Pond Camps at the halfway point.

The 35-mile travels on snowmobile trail with a large loop affording little to no head on passing. The 4-mile is on non-motorized trail with a large loop as well.

New this year, we will have a 4 mile sprint race for sled teams of 3-4 dogs, and 1-2 dog skijoring. The trail leads from Leisure Life and traverses over groomed, flat trails, looping back to finish at Leisure Life. The majority of the 4 miles will be private property, and not shared snowmobile trail.

Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers. The entry fee for sleds and skiers will be $30.00. This should be a fun run for participants, and we encourage all levels of experience to sign up!

Our support teams from Greenville Fire, Greenville PD, Greenville Public Works, Pine Tree Search and Rescue, Maine Warden Service and Maine Forest Service, Moosehead Riders and Shirley Bog Riders Snowmobile Clubs, Moosehead ATV Club and the Moosehead Chamber of Commerce.

 

Our many volunteers who tirelessly brave the cold temperatures to help keep the mushers safe and the whole event running smoothly.

 

We are so fortunate to have the whole communities support for this annual event.

Mark your calendars for February 4th, 2023!

Come see these awesome “Athletes Run Naked, Eat Raw Meat and Sleep in the Snow.”

 

Many Thanks to all our volunteers and the use of Private Lands held by Weyerhauser, Appalachian Mountain Club, West Branch Pond Camps, Leisure Life Resort and many small land owners as well!
