Canyon Sled Dog Challenge Cancelled; Meet Musher & Dogs This Saturday for Special Event at Darling Run on Rail Trail

“Since we can’t guarantee a quality event that is safe for mushers and their dogs, we are going to Plan B,” said organizer Mary Beth Logue in announcing the decision to cancel this Saturday’s Canyon Sled Dog Challenge. Plan B is a special free event for the public at 9am this Saturday, Feb. 22 at the Darling Run Access to the Pine Creek Rail Trail. To get there, take U.S. Route 6 from Wellsboro or Galeton to Shippen Township, turn onto Route 362, drive about 1.5 miles, turn right, enter the access area slowly and park. Logue, a mid-distance sled dog racer who lives in Trout Run, Pa., will have seven of her Alaskan huskies with her at Darling Run as well as racing equipment and supplies. "I am also inviting other mushers to bring their dogs,” she said. “We may run on the trail if conditions are safe.” At the Darling Run Access parking lot, Logue will give short presentations about mushing. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet her and her dogs and also to dress like a musher and stand behind a sled so a friend or relative can take their photo. Second Chance Animal Sanctuaries’ volunteers will be at the Darling Run Access parking lot with hot chocolate, coffee and Highland Surprise cookies available for a nominal fee/donation. All proceeds will benefit the animals in their care. "My sled dogs are friendly so people can walk up to them," Logue said. "I am bringing Hornet, Inish, Limerick, Ruby, Cyclone, Typhoon and Triumph." At 11am, this Saturday, Logue will also have her huskies, sled and equipment on display at the Burnin’ Barrel at the Ansonia Valley Inn in Shippen Township (GPS Address: 5440 Route 6, Wellsboro, PA 16901). This will give people a second opportunity to meet this musher and her dogs as well as dress like a musher and stand behind Logue's sled to have their photos taken for free. The Burnin' Barrel will open at 11am for lunch with three varieties of Straub beer on tap. Straub Brewery of St. Marys, Pa. is the sponsor of the challenge. A Straub representative will be on hand with a limited supply of T-shirts and pint glasses.
