Race cancelled

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!

All spots are sold! Drawing will be done this weekend at Ranch Rudolf. Video of the drawing will be posted announcing the winner!


Here is the chance to get a BRAND NEW Shooting Star model Arctic Star Dog Sleds sled manufactured by craftsman, Johnn Molburg. This sled is used by hundreds of mushers!

➡️ All proceeds from this raffle will go to support the continued operation of ISDRA (International Sled Dog Racing Association). ISDRA, like most groups, suffered financial hardships due to COVID-19. They were unable to host a convention in 2020 and will only have limited participation in a convention this year. ISDRA continues to provide services and benefits to races throughout the USA and Canada, but could use funds to provide continued services.
