33rd Annual Seguin Sled Dog Mail Run

Photo Gallery: Seguin Sled Dog Mail Run will appear here on the public site.

This year marks the 33rd anniverary of the Seguin Sled Dog Mail Run, and it will be held on Saturday, February 18th, 2017.

Every year since 1985, "sledvelopes" with letters prepared especially for this event, are gathered, loaded onto sleds and hauled by several dog teams to Rosseau, Ontario, 17 km through the bush on groomed trails.

Teams gather and leave from the Village of Humphrey, Ontario, on Highway 141, to the cheers and good wishes from the many spectators and friends as the teams disappear in the bush on their way to the Rosseau Post Office to be received by the Post Mistress.

The "sledvelopes" are hand stamped, a very old method of cancelling mail. These "sledvelopes" have become collector items all over the world.

What a wonderful surprise for a child, or even adult, to receive mail which has traveled by dogsled, pulled by eager Siberian Huskies!

If you would like to experience the excitement of this event, come to meet the drivers and the dogs on Saturday, February 18th, 2017 in the Village of Humphrey. Enjoy breakfast with the group at the Humphrey Community Centre. There will be activities for the children and many opportunities to have pictures taken with the beautiful, friendly huskies. 

The cost of each sledvelope is $3.00 and they can be purchased at the arena the morning of the event.
Sledvelopes can be purchased from the Seguin Township Municipal Office, Humphrey Arena, Rosseau Post Office, Nobel Post Office, or any Seguin Public Library branch (Rosseau, Humphrey, Foley or Orrville).

Thanks to a generous anonymous donation in memory of founder Elsie Chadwick, we've got a few exquisite pieces of huskies related artwork on our online auction in support of the 33rd Annual Seguin Sled Dog Mail Run. Check it out here!
