Yukon Quest

Resource Type
Case Studies

The Yukon Quest trail challenges sled dog racers—“mushers”—with a thousand miles of Arctic wilderness, four mountains, and some of the most treacherous weather on the planet.

Race organizers face those same challenges, plus the logistics of making the race run safely and smoothly. Most of that burden falls on the Yukon Quest’s race manager, race marshal, and head veterinarian.
