The Yukon Quest starts at 11:00 am on Saturday, February 1st right outside the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center. Don’t miss this iconic event of Interior Alaska! Here’s a tip from the locals: there’s free parking at the downtown parking garage for this special event!
The Yukon Quest has grown into an international affair, yet it continues to hold a special place in Alaskans’ hearts as a local, grassroots event. The 1,000 mile race along old gold rush and postal routes connecting Alaska and the Yukon is sustained by the labor and generosity of volunteers and donors. You can learn more about and support the race here, and see more of Whitney’s awesome photos here.
