Klondike Dog Derby

Lake Minnetonka Klondike Dog Derby 2020

The mission of The Lake Minnetonka Klondike Dog Derby is to present to our local community and to the mushing community a world-class sled dog race that is a genuine celebration of the sport and spirit of the authentic North; an opportunity for education on the incredible athleticism and passion of sled dogs and mushers; and a tribute to the history of sled dog racing in Excelsior and the Lake Minnetonka area. 

Please join us on Saturday, February 8th 2020 and Sunday, February 9th 2020 to help us make history by bringing the Klondike back to Lake Minnetonka.

Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Volunteer Training will take place in January 2020. Our Volunteer Coordinator will reach out to you in December regarding dates.
