Today is the day we’ve been waiting for, it’s the 8th Annual Mush for a Cure FUNdraiser on the Gunflint Trail. All festivities are on Gunflint Lake in front of Gunflint Pines Resort and Campground.
The short course race for small teams and skijorers begins at 10am and the long course begins at noon with a Sourdough Start. That’s when the musher starts out in their sleeping bag without their boots on and then when the whistle blows they rush to get their boots on, teams harnessed up and get on their way. It’s a super spectator friendly event.
Teams will come in staggered throughout the day and there will be a bonfire on the ice as well as food grilled by the Cook County Ridge Rider’s Snowmobile Club. The temperature is predicted to be in the teens and we’ll have the big tent up just in case the wind is nippy.
We’re looking forward to a great turnout for this FUNdraiser and hope to see many of you there!
