The Gichigami Express Sled Dog Race is a new world-class level sled dog race that will connect 3 Cook County communities on the North Shore of Lake Superior in northeast Minnesota. The race will be held in 3 stages.

This 3 day event celebrates the rich heritage of mushing in the Minnesota Arrowhead Region. In the 1700’s, the Northwest Company’s “Winter Express” delivered mail, medicine and news by dog teams to the ‘winters’ camps. For this race, each community will host commemorative events honoring this colorful page of our history.
