2018 Info

January 25 - 28, 2018 the Gold Rush Sled Dog Mail Run will be happening in Quesnel, Troll and Wells/Barkerville.


Specifically, on the Sunday, January 28, 2018 the Wells/Barkerville area will see upwards of 25 dog teams in the morning complete stage #3 of the Mail Run. Stage 3 will complete at the Post Office in Barkerville. In the afternoon, many of the dog teams plus skijorers, skiers, fat bike and others will participate in the BARKERVILLE DASH - a prime fun-filled speed race in both short and long distances.

From the Mail Run Website:

On Sunday, the Barkerville Dash - is included as the final leg of that day’s stage. Participants may choose to participate in the Barkerville Dash only (see Mail Run Stages). The Dash will start at Barkerville, run to One Mile Bridge and return to Barkerville (10 km), with a great “photo-op” finish in front of the Barkerville Post Office. There will be a shorter route (3 km) for snowshoers and others who do not wish to run the full 10 kilometers. The “Dash” is open to dog mushers, skijorers, skiers, runners, kicksledders, bicycles, snowshoers or any other mode of transportation. Dog Teams are not to exceed 6 dogs. All participants in the “Dash” must provide a prize that will become part of the prize pool….the “Dasher” with the fastest time in each, the long and short, race will get first pick and so on….everyone wins! This year there will be a draw prize for all registered Dash participants. It is a “sur-prize” with a $200.00  value. Must be present at the Wind-Up to win.
