The Mail Run envelopes are $3.00 each or 5 for $12.00 when purchased at any of our outlets. Envelopes have to be mailed in the special Mail Run box by February 7 for Wells and area as well as for Quesnel area.
Each envelope will contain a very special printed multi-colour insert that describes the history of the Gold Rush Trail Sled Dog Mail Run and of the Cariboo Gold Rush, it provides contact website information and the back of the insert offers a special place for you to write a greeting to the recipient.
It is necessary that envelopes carry the appropriate postage for Canadian, American or International destinations and this cost is the responsibility of the purchaser. It is not anticipated that Canadian postal rates will rise so postage during the Mail Run will be at the current rate.
Rules for Mailing out of Country:
International law requires envelopes to be sealed and must have a return address, or they will not leave Canada, and consequently - nor will it be returned....
