Idita-Trail & Winter Challenge
Feb 28 @ 9:30 am

Ready for your self-made challenge? The Buffalo Valley Recreation Authority (BVRA) is excited to announce the First Annual Idita-Trail & Winter Challenge on Saturday, February 28th, 2015 at 9:30am on the Buffalo Valley Rail Trail (BVRT).

The weekend before the actual 998-mile Iditarod Great Sled Race in Alaska, frosty paws and feet will compete to finish the entire 9 miles of the BVRT from Lewisburg to Mifflinburg, PA. Racers are permitted to walk, run, bike, or even snowshoe or ski in order to complete the challenge. The race is an all-weather event; the more snow and the colder the weather the better the challenge! Canine companions are welcomed, but not required.

Pre-register by February 13th to receive a commemorative knit beanie. Day of registration will be available and all challenge finishers will receive a shirt celebrating their victory. Special awards will also be given at the event’s conclusion. And, a shuttle van will be available for those who would like a ride back to their vehicle in Lewisburg.

Not up for the challenge, but want to show your support? Pledge a donation in the name of a racer! The racer with the greatest number of pledges will be recognized. And business sponsorships are available at levels from ‘Sled Dog’ to ‘Check Point Sponsor’!

Not be left out, area kids can participate in the IKIDarod, a multi-part winter event and program. The February 16th Program features exploration of the iconic sled dog and its physiology made for pulling, the IKIDarod course, the check points, and a practice pull, before helping to decorate the “Burled Arch” that marks the end of the race on February 21st.

The first race: Mini-Mushers is geared toward preschoolers who will pull a stuffed animal around the track stopping at checkpoints along the way. The second, Go Sled-Dogs!: is geared toward kids K-3rd grade and has teams comprised of 4 “dogs”: lead dog, swing dog, team dog, and wheel dog; and a “musher.” Both events take place in the Lewisburg Recreation Park. Trail checkpoints will feature challenges or ‘fuel’: check the supplies, “doggie” treats, musher snack, water the dogs, change dog booties, and vet check. Participants will be assigned a team and position according to age. Each race ends when the last musher crosses the “burled arch” finish line!

Idita-Trail & Winter Challenge, day of registration begins at 8:15.

IKIDarod registration and event check-in begins at 9:30. Bring a sled if not preregistered.

Both Events register online or at the Warming House on day of event.

Transportation Industry Workshop
Mar 3 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am

In response to high demand for workers in the truck driving industry, PA CareerLink® Northumberland, Snyder, Union Counties at Sunbury and Professional Drivers Academy in Milton Industrial Park are offering a workshop. “Transportation Tuesday” will be offered Tuesday, March 3rd, 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM at the CareerLink in Sunbury. These sessions will introduce the process required to attain a CDL license, review possible funding sources, and feature former students and representatives from over-the-road and short run trucking companies, and local  transportation companies hiring auxiliary positions such as yard jockey, dock workers or warehousing/logistics positions.  Representatives from Penn DOT,  Estes Express, San Tran LLC and Camel Express Trucking will present information about jobs with their company.

The demand for CDL A license holders has skyrocketed and far outpaces supply.  High industry wages coupled with short term training offer an outstanding return on investment. Those interested in considering possible careers in transportation are invited to attend these information sessions. The PA CareerLink is located at 225 Market Street on the third floor of the Sunbury Municipal Building, next to the courthouse.  Free parking for customers is offered directly behind the building. Please call 570-988-7300 to reserve a spot.
