Finish Line Location Change

Monday, February 15, 2016

The Yukon Quest 1,000 Mile International Sled Dog Race will be moving the finish line from its current location, downtown Whitehorse, to the Takhini Hot Springs, located at 10 km/ Mile 6 Takhini Hotsprings Road.

This decision has been made due to rapidly changing river conditions and has been implemented to ensure the safety of the teams. 

This change will be instituted after the fourth musher completes the race.
