MUSH FOR A CURE IS NOT A RACE.

Entry Fee: $50 if registration is postmarked prior to January 31, 2011. $75 February 1 – March 5, 2010. Entry fee is accepted by check only. Registration form can be sent electronically, but participant will not be considered entered until money is received. Postmark on envelope with entry determines date of entry and sash number.

Refunds will be given until February 28, 2011 NO REFUNDS AFTER MARCH 1, 2011

ENTRIES LIMITED TO THE FIRST 50 SLED TEAMS AND FIRST 30 SKIJOR TEAMS ENTERED
(Entry determined by date on postmark)

 Dog team size: 5-8, left to the discretion of the team driver.

Good sportsmanship will prevail. Please respect your fellow participants and others that may be using the trail at the same time, i.e. property owners, snowmobilers, etc. Please respect the volunteers of this event. Since this is not a race, no times will be kept and no awards will be given for order of finish.

Sashes with numbers will be distributed at registration. These will be used to identify that all teams have safely made it through road crossings. Please wear them on the outside of your clothing. We ask that you also yell out your number to the road crossing personnel so they can cross you off the “passed through safely” list.

This run will have a sourdough start. Mushers will be in their sleeping bags with their boots off. When the gun goes off, they will put on their boots and hitch up their teams before “pulling the hook” and heading down Gunflint Lake. Dogs can be harnessed and bootied before the start. For the safety of the other teams and volunteers, all participants will follow the trail as marked.

Skijor teams will start at 10:00 at the Cross River on the Gunflint Trail and run appx. 3.5 miles to Gunflint Pines Resort.

Mandatory Gear: Your bags will not be checked prior to the start. However, if you have cable in your gangline, a cable cutter should be on your person. At check-in participants will be required to sign a release of liability form.

Mush For a Cure WILL NOT BE CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER. If, for safety reasons, the dog run is unable to be held, all other events will go on as planned. Registration fees will not be refunded. Teams must still register on the day of the event to receive goody bags and  must be present at awards ceremony to receive prizes. If a team decides to not participate, pledges can be mailed in and the pledges will be mailed a thank you with the amount pledged for income tax deduction.

Participants will choose a prize, starting with the person who gets the highest amount of pledges and number of pledges and working down the list. Participant must be present at awards ceremony to claim their prize. If they are not present, we will move on to the next person. Participants who pay their entry fee and choose not to solicit pledges will have their names put into a hat which will be drawn at random to choose from the prizes after the last person with pledges chooses his/her prize.

Let’s have fun and raise money for a good cause!
