Given this week’s warm weather and rain, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail Race.
The trail will be available on Saturday and Sunday for sled/skijor teams of up to four dogs for a fun run/demo. The town has been very supportive of the race, we’d love to be able to show them our sport!
Thanks to the horror that is January rain, the race will be postponed until March 2-3. Registration for Tamworth is still open (see the Tamworth event page).
Lamoille Valley Rail Trail Race
Due to the forecasted conditions for Sunday, we are postponing the race until Feb. 9-10.
Currently, the trail looks very good. The turnarounds are all wider and larger than last year’s. We are watching the forecast carefully with regard to the projected snow fall.
New 4-dog turnaround
You may now register for the Lamoille Rail Trail Race on the event page
. We should have an update on trail conditions after the weekend.
The Jericho race will not be held this year. We hope to make this race happen next season.
