2016 Mail Run Wrap Up
Greetings to all of you, thank you for your participation, support and your interest in the 24th Gold Rush Trail Sled Dog Mail Run. Without everyone’s involvement, the Mail Run could not have happened.
Over 2000 envelopes were carried by dog sled to Barkerville and on to their destinations throughout the world. The seventeen dog teams and one skijorer who covered the trail all three days had a great time. The mail made to Barkerville by dogsled, despite the proverbial wind, rain, sleet and snow….and it was all dry when it got there.
Friday started somewhat inauspiciously with rain at the Swearing In but everyone was in good spirits and the speeches short and sweet. The road to Umiti Pit was cleared of snow and well sanded early in the day. The trail was as good as can be in the rain, certainly neither the dogs or the mushers became dehydrated, and the hamburgers were well appreciated by mushers and those waiting for their return. In the evening, the delicious pot luck supper was enjoyed by all and was well served by the young ladies of the Dragon Lake Girl Guide Troop. There was a wonderful opportunity for everyone to share stories about past Mail Runs following the meal….these memories were very special. Read more....
