The 2020 Yukon Quest is alive!

Live Tracking here!

Yukon Quest!"At the top of the world in the Yukon and Alaska wilderness of northwestern North America, an epic winter sports event takes place every February: the Yukon Quest 1,000 Mile International Sled Dog Race. Covering 1,000 miles (1,600 km) between Whitehorse, Yukon and Fairbanks, Alaska during the depths of winter... This incredible winter event takes place every February when weather conditions can be the coldest and most unpredictable. The Yukon Quest race starts on schedule regardless of weather and lasts from 10 to 16 days until the final dog team arrives at the finish line. The Yukon Quest has been run every year since 1984 over rough, sometimes hazardous terrain. The Yukon Quest Trail follows historical Gold Rush and mail delivery dog sled routes from the turn of the 20th Century." YQ is a month earlier, in a harsher climate, a little longer, and on a rougher trail than the Iditarod! A 300 mile version of the race (the YQ300) is actually used to qualify for the Iditarod!
