| We've increased the purse for all three races, by a total of $10,000. Check out the UPSDA website for the figures: www.up200.org
UP200 mushers: the upbound checkpoint at Wetmore will be a normal assisted checkpoint this year, unless you are using the race as an Iditarod qualifier. We will have an area for unassisted teams. The checkpoint is at the Timber Products facility and will be closed to spectators. Mushers arrive around midnight and leave in the early morning, so spectators will be encouraged to go to Grand Marais and visit the teams there.
Mushers, if you enter by November 15th, you are automatically entered in a drawing to receive a 50% refund of your race fees. One winner will be drawn for each race.
More updates as they come along. See you in February!
