Yukon Quest Finish Line Update

Thursday, February 9, 2017

Due to the varying thickness of the ice in downtown Fairbanks, the Finish Line for the Yukon Quest 1,000 Mile International Sled Dog Race is moving off the river and onto the yard behind the Big I Pub & Lounge next to the river.

Ice measurements taken earlier this week show samples between 16” thick to only 2” thick in a few areas. The ice is safe for the dog teams coming in but for safety purposes, the Yukon Quest would like to avoid hosting large crowds on the river.
