2020 will mark the 37th running of the Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race, a unique race traversing 1,000 miles of frozen lakes, rivers and mountains between Whitehorse, Yukon and Fairbanks, Alaska. 15 teams are currently preparing to tackle the trail in 2020, and 21 more are signed up for a shorter 300-mile trek to Central, Alaska.
Following historic gold rush trails and transportation corridors, the Yukon Quest is built on a rich tradition of teamwork, history and self-sufficiency. Mushers and their canine athletes come together every February to test themselves against the winter elements and experience the camaraderie and hospitality of the trail. There is no other dogsled race quite like it.
The Yukon Quest is a non-profit organization comprised mostly of volunteers, and every year we fundraise in order to meet our financial goals. This is where we need YOUR help! Every dollar raised here
will go directly into funding the race. To sweeten the deal, we will be posting regular updates and drawing donor names for a chance to win unique Yukon Quest merchandise and memorabilia.
Thank you to our incredible Yukon Quest family for your ongoing support. We truly could not do it every year without your help. See you down the trail!
