Mush for a Cure
The 2nd Annual Mush for a Cure on the Gunflint Trail will be held on Saturday, March 15th beginning at high noon. Gunflint Lake in front of Gunflint Pines Resort and Campground will be the official race starting point. Teams will travel to the finish line at Trail Center on Poplar Lake for a bonfire, live music and fun.
The race start will be a Sourdough start where mushers begin the race in their sleeping bags without their boots on. At the sound of the shotgun the mushers must get dressed and harness their dogs before taking off on their journey. It’s an incredible scene to watch as mushers rush around their barking and jumping dogs to try to get them all ready to run.
Teams who want to compete will need a minimum pledge of $50.00. All money earned will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation through Pink Paddles and the help of Black Magic Kennels. The Mush for a Cure will be a day of fun for paricipants and spectators alike and it will be done for a good cause.
Please join us on the Trail for this memorable event.
