Meghan and the Red & Black team are racing the "Percy" next week!
The Percy DeWolfe Memorial Mail Race began in 1977 as a way to honour the legendary Percy DeWolfe, who carried mail by dog team, horse and boat between Dawson City in the Yukon and Eagle in Alaska from 1910 to 1949.
The race is 210 miles (338 km) starting in Dawson City and following the Yukon River to Eagle and back. There is a mandatory six hour layover in Eagle, plus an additional two hours in either Fortymile or Eagle. It starts on Thursday, March 27 at 10am.
Meghan will take nine teammates and we will post a race roster closer to the time. Josh is handling for Meghan but it is a fairly "hands-off" race for handlers as they can't go to either checkpoint so he will have limited opportunity to bring us race news.
