You can cheer on your favorite sled dog team at the 22nd Annual Apostle Islands Sled Dog Race near Bayfield on Saturday and Sunday, February 4 and 5. Races start at 10 a.m. both days. There will be an 80-mile race, a 60-mile race, a 40-mile race, a 6 to 8-mile family race and a 6 to 8-mile youth race (16 and under). Sure it’s cold, but you’ll be able to warm up in the warming tent and around the bonfires.
The start and finish line is at the Echo Valley Gravel Pit on Highway 13, fifteen miles from downtown Bayfield. Find a program with a map of the race courses at the Visitor Center of the Bayfield Chamber or the Visitor Bureau in Bayfield. Learn more at Apostle Islands Sled Dog Race .
