Finish Line Location Change

Wednesday, February 13, 2019

Due to increasingly dangerous conditions coming into Fairbanks, including overflow and wind-blown snow, the Yukon Quest 1,000 Mile International Sled Dog Race will be moving the finish line.

The finish line will be moved from its current location, the Morris Thompson Culture and Visitors Center in downtown Fairbanks, to Nordale Bridge.

To reach Nordale Bridge, drive 10 miles down Chena Hotsprings Road. Turn right on Nordale Road. Drive a couple miles down the road and the bridge will be visible.

This change has been made after the 13th team crossed the finish line in downtown Fairbanks.
