Apparently, there has been a huge migration of Great Gray Owls to Northern Minnesota from Canada, so you may see them on the trail. Make sure you bring your camera.
You may also encounter a few rare celebrities dog sledding on the trail as Charlize Theron and Woody Harrelson, among others are filming a movie on the Iron Range this week.
Note: Please do not hesitate to let us know if any of you participants need anything as we may have access to extra equipment we can loan you for the race.
Finally, the DNR wants us to remind you participants:
1) No drinking alcohol on the trail. (It can cause hypothermia).
2) Also make sure you have at least 10 sq. inches of reflective material on both front and back of your person.
