Race Director - Jeff Foss

Jeff’s first taste of the Keweenaw occurred when he arrived for school at Michigan Tech to pursue a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Soon after arriving he fell in love with the Copper Country and spent much time exploring it’s wonders. Before leaving he had found a passion for organic gardening. This led Jeff into his first career as an organic vegetable farmer, which he did for 15 years, mostly in the Madison, WI area suppling local restaurants there.

His love of the Keweenaw never faded. He returned to the Copper Country in 2011 with his family. Wanting to support the local communities, he saw the CopperDog as a great way to do that. He was recruited into the position of Trail Boss at that time, which was quite the introduction to the world of sled dog racing. From there he spent four years as the Trail Director where he worked closely with the Race Director. This is Jeff's first year as Race Director. His experience as the Trail Director and his work with International Frisbee Inc. as the Tournament Director for the International Frisbee Tournament, the oldest Frisbee tournament in the world, have prepared him well for the challenges of leading a 400 person volunteer organization that spans the entire Keweenaw.
