Meet the Mushers is a free event that takes place prior to the race allowing fans to come and meet with all the 2017 mushers. Yukon Quest merchandise is available for purchase and mushers are available for signatures. 

“Meet the Mushers has always been a fantastic way to kick off the pre-race events,” says Natalie Haltrich, Yukon Quest Executive Director – Yukon. “With the race starting in Whitehorse this year and Inukshuk Professional Dog Food coming on for the second year, this event is sure to be a great time for all who attend. It’s more than fitting to have a high-end dog food company on board and supporting this event.”
