The Copper Basin 300 needs volunteers to make this race work. It is a fun way to be part of a sled dog race and to get out in the dead of winter to experience some of the best sled dog racing in the world. If you are interested in volunteering, please submit the form below. There are three basic areas that need volunteers:

  • Trail Breaking: Trail breakers go out throughout the winter and run the trail, clear debris, widen the trail, and stake the trail as time draws closer to the race. During the race, trail breakers go out ahead of the race breaking fresh snow as needed, marking reroutes as needed, and making sure the trail is open. If you are interested in helping with trail work, please contact Jason at (907) 320-0503 or email copperbasin300@gmail.com.

  • Race Central: Race Central is located at the American Legion Hall in downtown Glennallen. Race Central opens Friday prior to the race and is open 24 hours a day until the final musher crosses the finish line sometime Tuesday. This year, Race Central will move from the American Legion to the finish at Old Paths Baptist Church on Monday morning in preparation for the mushers to start arriving. On Friday, Race Central handles all the paperwork for mushers entering the race. This includes shot records, food drop slips, and registration forms. Race Central handles phone calls from the general public wanting information about the progress of the race, including specific mushers and their location. Reports received from checkpoints are carefully recorded. This information is then given to the website managers to enter onto the website. Race Central also handles all paperwork from the judges, vets, and checkers/checkpoints after each checkpoint has closed down. If you are interested in volunteering for Race Central, please email us your name and contact information to copperbasin300@gmail.com.

  • Checkpoints: There are a variety of other volunteer positions needed during the race. If you are interesting in volunteering at the checkpoints, please contact Amanda Renee at (706) 386-7653 or email copperbasin300@gmail.com.

    • Checkers are needed at each checkpoint. Checkpoints open ahead of the first musher arriving, and close after the last musher leaves. Each checkpoint is open a different length of time, depending on its location in the race. Checkers check the mandatory equipment in the sled bag as the mushers come in. Checkers usually work in pairs, with one person marking the time and number of dogs on the time sheets, and has the musher sign his/her name, while the other checker is checking the musher’s mandatory gear.

    • Mushers are also required to check out. Checkers will need to record the time the musher leaves and have them sign the time sheet. Checkers will be needed throughout the day and night. Checkers also phone information from the checkpoint to Race Central. This information includes which musher has come and gone, as well as any musher that may have scratched (withdrawn from the race). Anyone interested in volunteering at checkpoint will be given a thorough explanation prior to being sent out to a checkpoint.

  • Merchandise Sales: Volunteers are always needed to help with merchandise sales during the race start, finish, and at race central throughout the race. We sell clothing apparel and other CB300 souvenir items. Duties include selling items, accepting cash or credit card, and keeping tables stocked with items. If you are interested in volunteering at the merchandise table, contact Morgan Gantz at (907) 255-7111.
