CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS!
Timers, Team Fetchers, Registration Help, Set-up, Take Down, Kitchen Help, Trail Help and Bib Collector. Races can’t happen without volunteers, so please volunteer to help when you are not racing, or bring someone with you who can. Please let us know what position you’d prefer by Monday January 9. As much as volunteering on the day is appreciated, we really need to plan in advance to be able to guarantee a quality event that we can all enjoy. Volunteer Coordinator Jeff Black: VOLUNTEERS@MUSHLAROSE.CA
There will be a charge of $10.00 per run. We will require Rabies and Parvo/Distemper vaccine – you must present paperwork if you have not already done so at a previous race, or training day this season.
There will be ribbons and badges for placing in each category.
Other prizes TBD.
Pizza and pop and hot chocolate will be available to purchase on site. Order your Boboul’s pizza before 10 am for noon delivery. In addition to the pizza this year we will have a big pot of homemade chili available for those so inclined. There is no water on site. Please bring your own.
This race is dedicated to recreational mushers and dog-powered sports enthusiasts and is open to all breeds. It also serves as an opportunity for experienced dog mushers to enjoy the trail and share their knowledge. Most importantly it is a chance to “get working dogs off unemployment” and have a great time socializing with our dog sledding friends. Please be aware that these dogs are not all house pets. Ask the owner before you approach any dog, be respectful of the proper way to approach a dog.
No loose dogs on site. Racers under age 18 must wear a helmet and eye protection. Please clean up after your dogs. All sleds must have a snow hook sufficient to hold the team and a leash or snub-line. Dogs are required to be in harness. Any participant may be disqualified if their equipment or their treatment of the dogs is deemed unsafe or unacceptable by the Race Marshall.
