Want to know how to follow along with the Yukon Quest and YQ300? As always, you will find SP Kennel-centric news right here throughout the race.
We may also post directly to our Facebook and Instagram pages when posting from the blog is more challenging.
Remember that the Yukon Quest goes through remote Yukon and Alaskan wilderness so internet may not be fantastic at times. I (Moira) am on the ground in the Yukon side and will post whenever it's possible but I likely won't upload any video from the trail as the checkpoint internet needs to be shared with all the other teams also.
Kaz is on hand to keep you updated if I am unable to get you information, and for when the handler crew is on that loooong drive between Dawson City and Fairbanks.
Your best bet for the whole race and other mushers is the Yukon Quest Facebook page and website. There will be trackers on the YQ1000 and YQ300 teams as well as an up-to-date leaderboard.
The "Visual Content Team": L-R Chance, Whitney, Steve, Julien and in Front: Mark. These talented people will be taking pics and video throughout the race for the Yukon Quest. (Do you know how hard it is to get a photo of photographers?)
Local news organisations, including race sponsors Fairbanks Daily News Miner and CKRW The Rush, will also be covering the events and I will try to link stories as they come up.
We also thank you in advance for your patience if either Allen or Aliy drop or "return" a dog to us. Sometimes we don't find out who it is right away as it could be in one of the remote checkpoints/stops. We will bring you the information as soon as we are able.
You may wish to bookmark all these links now and start warming up your "refresh finger". The countdown is on!
