It is the primary goal of the Down East Sled Dog Club to host a safe event for all participants, support crews, and spectators. With this in mind, there are several steps that everyone in attendance must take, in order to maintain the safety of others. The threat of COVID-19 is real, and we are currently in a nationwide pandemic. The following are guidelines that must be followed while on the property of Sunset Ridge Golf Links and in attendance of the race:
All persons must wear a face covering when social distancing is not available.
Social distancing is defined as being 6 or more feet from the nearest person.
Face coverings will be required any time you leave the area around your vehicle set up.
This is defined as further than 6 feet in any direction beyond your vehicle.
Face coverings will be required for all handlers, spectators, and officials in the start and finishing chutes.
Mushers who are actively racing are not required to wear a mask, however it is recommended for the start and finishing chutes.
If you are feeling sick, have come in contact with someone who has been sick, or are unable to wear a mask due to health issues; we ask that you please stay home!
Refusal to abide by the COVID-19 guidelines by mushers or their support crews, will be considered unsportsmanlike conduct and may result in disqualification.
Please refer to the Maine State guidelines for further information and instructions.
