2022 February 5th
Sign up will start on November 16th 2021
and NEW for 2022
4 dogs Sprint race
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 5th, 2022!
