About Sled Dogs and Sled Dog Racing
Sled Dog Racing - History
What Makes Sled Dogs Run?
What is the first image that comes to mind when you hear the word "mushing"?
Snow Dog History - Fearless. Faithful. Diligent. Tireless. These are just some of the words used by polar explorers to describe the dogs that helped them on their treks across the frozen continents. 
The Yukon Quest - The 1,000 mile (1600km) Yukon Quest is a unique cross border sled dog race, running between Whitehorse, Yukon and Fairbanks, Alaska. There is no other race like the Yukon Quest. It is not a staged race but a true distance race. Mushers cannot replace sleds during the race and cannot have stoves and equipment flown into any of the checkpoints. With distances between checkpoints sometimes over 200 miles, they must carry many of their supplies with them. Mushers in the Quest must truly challenge the northern wilderness on their own to brave "the toughest race on earth".
