The Yukon Quest is a 1 600 km dog sled race between Whitehorse, in the Yukon Territory to Fairbanks, Alaska and will last 10 to 16 days.
The organizers of the Yukon Quest take great care to make sure the mushers are ready for the trip. You can read about how they prepare for the race HERE.
We will be learning all about this race and different types of breeds of dogs who pull these sleds for the next 3 weeks in class. Come by the school and check out the bulletin board outside our classroom for updated information.
