Apostle Islands Sled Dog Race - Bayfield Chamber & Visitor Bureau
The excitement felt throughout the grounds of the Apostle Islands Sled Dog Races is simply electrifying. "The best thing about a sled dog race is that you can feel the excitement in the air! The dogs love it, the mushers love it, the volunteers love it and all that energy ignites the crowd," states John Thiel of Wolfsong Adventures in Mushing - Theil has been actively involved in assisting in the planning of this race for 17 years.
The 18th Annual Apostle Islands Sled Dog Race will be held on Saturday and Sunday, February 2nd and 3rd, 2013. Races begin at 10:00 am Saturday and Sunday with half of the total race distance completed each day. There are two main races: an 8 dog, 80-mile race and a 6 dog, 60-mile race.
