Registration & Check-In

All drivers or their representatives are required to check in at the Lonesome Pine ski lodge any time between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 1, 2024.

At check-in, CAC will provide each driver with an official bib or vest which displays his/her start number. A $40 deposit will be required.

All drivers or their representative must also report to the Vaccination Check table. When the vaccine check is complete, the driver or representative will be given a number to place on their vehicle. This will indicate to the veterinary team the order in which veterinary exams will be conducted.

If the driver or representative fails to check in before 4:00 p.m., then Can-Am Crown cannot guarantee that team a position in the race.

Veterinary Examinations

All dogs must be available for physical examinations before the start of the race.

Each dog must be identified by the dog's name legibly printed on or attached to the collar.

Unless other arrangements are made with the Chief Veterinarian, all teams will be examined sometime between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 1, 2024 in order based on the numbers assigned at the Vaccination Check table. The examinations will be conducted in the parking lot at the Lonesome Pine Ski Lodge unless otherwise announced.

At the pre-race veterinary examination, any dog which, in the opinion of the Chief Veterinarian, should not run the race, shall not run the race. If the Chief Veterinarian believes that a dog has a contagious illness, then the dog must be removed from the area, and the Race Marshall may also reject the entire team for the safety of the other teams. In addition, if the Chief Veterinarian believes that a dog is too vicious to be examined safely, then that dog shall be rejected. Only the Chief Veterinarian, acting in agreement with the Race Marshall, can force the dropping of a dog during the race.

Most race-related veterinary expenses are paid by Can-Am Crown. However, drivers are expected to pay extraordinary veterinary expenses they might incur during the race. Can-Am Crown may, at its discretion, charge a driver for any medical supplies administered to a team before the start of the race. Prize moneys will be awarded minus any unpaid veterinary expenses charged to the driver. Drivers with unpaid Can-Am veterinary bills will not be allowed to register for Can-Am events.

Once Can-Am Central closes, soon after the last 250-mile team crosses the finish line, services will no longer be provided by the Can-Am Crown veterinary team. During the running of the 250-mile race, services for 30-mile and 100-mile teams may still be provided if a veterinarian is present at Can-Am Central. The drivers of the 30-mile and 100-mile teams should be prepared to contact one of the local veterinary practices if a Can-Am veterinarian is not available after these two races finish.

After the races, drivers/owners may contact private veterinary services. A list of providers will be available at Can Am Central.
