Special thanks to Spenard Builders Supply…our Poorman Checkpoint Sponsor and co-sponsor of the Woody’s Rookie Workshop. Each year they generously donate the warehouse space for the workshop and provide lunch for all the rookies!
First time riders and racers that have not finished the race are required to attend this workshop. The ultimate goal is to familiarize racers with the challenges, safety requirements and risks associated with running the Iron Dog race.
