The Yukon Quest is a 1,000 miles dog sled race from Whitehorse, Yukon to Fairbanks, Alaska. Every February for the past thirty years, up to fifty professional dog musher and sled dog teams journey through the rugged subarctic North American wilderness along what was once the “Klondike Highway,” a historical route that sled dogs used to deliver mail during the turn of the century Gold Rush. Although less known than the Iditarod, the “Quest” is considered to be the toughest sporting event of it’ kind – not just a race, but a test of survival in some of the harshest wilderness known to man.
