Curious about the 6-dog race route for 2019? Mushers and their 6-dog teams will follow the Taconite Trail to just short of the Bear Head Lake State Park road, and then run along Purvis Road and loop back onto the Taconite Trail. The total route will be about 32 miles in length. Click the above map to explore their route.
The 8-dog course remains the same as in previous years. View their route by clicking “About the Race” above and selecting “Race Route” from the drop down list.
