Yukon Quest Changes Route

2022 Quest champion Brent Sass with dogs Lucy and Morello.

The trail for next month’s 550-mile Yukon Quest Alaska Sled Dog Race has been rerouted off the Yukon River due to unsafe ice conditions. All race checkpoints will now be road accessible, a change that could increase entries before a sign-up deadline that’s been extended until Friday. KUAC’s Dan Bross reports.
