END OF THE RUN
Rideau Lakes Cup Dog Sled Event Cancelled
The Rideau Lakes Cup ran some very successful Dog Sled and Skijoring Races over the past years with thanks to extremely energetic, dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers. Competitors who supported these events were some of the best athletes in their field and made the Rideau Cup the best competition in South Eastern Ontario.
Weather played havoc for a number of years resulting in last minute cancellations or shortening the race venue due to poor winter conditions.
We ran a very successful race in 2013 for both Sled Dog Teams and Skijorers. Mother Nature cooperated and the daylong event was a huge accomplishment.
However, the volunteers of the Rideau Lakes Cup have decided that this event will now end on a bang.
Thank you to everyone who has supported the Rideau Lakes Cup in the past. To the event volunteers, competitors and spectators. To our sponsors and photographers. To our web page designer and the executive committee members. To our founding members and race Marshalls. We are sad to see the end of the Rideau Cup but leave with amazing memories and deep appreciation and respect for the sport.
