Sled dog mail run returns to Seguin 

 The 39th annual Seguin Sled Dog Mail Run is happening on Feb. 24. 

A pancake breakfast at the Humphrey Community Centre will kick off the day’s event at 7:30 a.m. There you will be able to meet the participating mushers and sled dogs. 

Officials say the annual event, featuring mushers from across the province and United States, pays tribute to Siberian Huskies and the days when mail and other essentials were delivered to remote regions by sled dog. The mushers and their dogs travel 17-kilometres of wooded trails and over frozen lakes from Humphrey to Rosseau to honour the tradition 

Opening ceremonies will take place at 9:30 a.m. before the teams take off down the trails with sleds full of mail bags at around 9:45 a.m.

A bonfire, winter games, hot chocolate and chili will be on offer at Rosseau Village beginning at 11 a.m. before the event wraps up at 2 p.m. 

“We look forward to welcoming visitors, locals, mushers and their dogs to celebrate this tradition,” said Dominique O’Brien, director of community services for Seguin Township. “It’s going to be fantastic.” 

Leading up to the event, pre-stamped, commemorative “sledvelopes” are purchased by guests and community members to send to loved ones. After the run, the “sledvelopes” are hand-stamped by Canada Post and distributed all over the world.
