Sandwich Sled Dog Race

Warm temps., rain, sleet, ice and more ice! We are still hoping for more snow so that we can hold the Sandwich Sled Dog Race, sponsored by the Sandwich Sidehillers Winter Trail Club on Saturday, February 18th at 9:00 a.m. The annual Musher’s Supper will be held on Friday night before the Race at the Sandwich Central School at 5:30 p.m. We already have mushers registered and plans are rapidly moving forward. Dog teams will start heading out at 9am at the start/finish line at Floyd’s Field on Bennett Street in North Sandwich. Warm food and drinks will be available there at the “Sidehillers Cafe”. We need more snow, but we also need volunteers!! Please consider becoming involved with this local winter tradition by helping out in the Sidehillers Cafe, hosting a musher, working on trails as a crossing attendant, helping to manage parking and logistics, or any of the hard work that it takes to put on this event. If you can help out in any way, please email Marsha Colcord, Race Marshal, at [email protected] or call her at 986-8375. More information can also be found under the “Mushing” tab on this website.
