The 37th Annual Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race departed Fairbanks Feb. 1 with a flourish. Mushers and their dog teams are heading over mountains, through blowing snow, across frozen rivers, enduring frigid temperatures and rugged conditions for 1,000 miles to the finish line in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. Listen to coverage on KUAC FM weekday mornings after the news and at 1 p.m., and weekends at 7:35 and 8:35 a.m.
