Sandwich Sled Dog Race

The Sandwich Sled Dog Race, hosted by the Sandwich Sidehillers Winter Trail Club, will be held on Saturday, February 14, 2015 on Bennett Street in North Sandwich. The Mushers Supper will be held at the Sandwich Central School on Friday, February 13th starting at 5:30 p.m., followed by the Mushers meeting.  On Saturday morning, come and watch the mushers take off for either a 45 or 20 mile course that winds around the beautiful Sandwich and Tamworth winter trails. The Race starts at 9:00 a.m. and racers leave the Starting Line every 2 minutes.  Hot food and drink will be available, so grab a hot coffee and a breakfast sandwich, and watch the dogs and their drivers get ready.  For more information, please click the “Mushing” tab.   We need lots of volunteers; please contact Marsha Colcord at 986-8375 or tecnalanowridge@gmail.com if you can help.  We are also in need of local homes that are willing to “Adopt A Musher”, providing a local place to stay for Friday night, February 13th.   The mushers are quite self-sufficient, but need room to park their truck and tie out their dogs, and a place to sleep.  Please email sidehillers@gmail.com if you can help out with that.
