Volunteers Sought For 2013 WolfTrack Classic Sled Dog Race

After a lack of snow cancelled the WolfTrack Classic Sled Dog Race in 2012, it’s running full steam this year toward its fifth annual event. Considering the infectious charm of the canine athletes in the competition, race organizers point to many volunteer opportunities as a great way to see it up close, become more acquainted with the dogs and shake off any midwinter blues. Volunteers are an integral part of the WolfTrack Classic. More than 200 are required to safely complete the race. Among a variety of tasks, volunteers help manage 15 road crossings, the starts of two concurrent races and multiple finish lines. The race has several volunteer groups involved in race-day support roles such as Vermilion Community College law enforcement students and the Tower Boy Scouts.
