Maine Forest and Logging Museum Sled Dog Races

The Maine Forest and Logging Museum is hosting a dog sled  race!

 

November 11, Sunday, 9am - 12pm

 

Though not quite into winter the dogs are ready to run!  Join members of the Maine Highlands Sled Dog Club at the Bradley Museum on November 11 to watch the dogs get harnessed up to various dry land rigs to race into the Penobscot Experimental Forest.  

There will be a short route for small teams and larger teams will use the same trail the museum uses for the Blackman Stream Alewife Run held in the spring.

 

The Maine Highlands Sled Dog Club was founded in 2002 as a recreational club offering educational and instructional opportunities for people wanting to get involved in dog-powered sports. The club holds several events a year including a training weekend in October, a dry land race in the fall and dog sled races during the winter months. Competitions include dog sledding and skijoring on snow; canicross, bikejoring, scooter and rig races in the fall.

 

Everyone is welcome to come to the free event to learn more about the sport and enjoy a day at the museum.  For more information about Maine Highlands, please visit mainesleddogclub.com or follow Maine Sled Dog Club on Facebook.  The museum buildings and gift shop will be open--warm up with some hot chocolate heating on the wood stove!

 

The dogs will be on the move Sunday morning, November 11, 9am - 12pm and the museum buildings will remain open until 2. The Maine Forest and Logging Museum is located at 262 Government Rd., Bradley, off Rte. 178.
