Join us for the 10th Annual Great Cardboard Sled Race on Saturday, February 11 at the Rochester Golf and Country Club.



We are excited to celebrate The Great Cardboard Sled Race 10 year anniversary. This event will take place on Saturday, February 11, 2023 at the Rochester Golf and Country Club. We welcome around 40-50 sleds that children and families construct using cardboard, glue, tape, decorations, and maybe a little wax on the bottom (but don't tell). Trophies are awarded for Fastest Sled, Furthest Distance, and Best Design in each race. Families enjoy cookies, brownies, hot cocoa and coffee throughout the day. This year will be bigger than ever and we will have igloos, firepits, and prizes!
