2022 Quest planning gets underway
The Quest will go on.
Officials with the Yukon Quest 1,000 Mile International Sled Dog Race confirmed in a Feb. 24 announcement that the race is being planned for 2022 after a hiatus this year due to COVID-19. It was the first time since the Quest was first run in 1984 that it hadn’t been held.
The long-distance race from Fairbanks, Alaska to Whitehorse is planned for Feb. 5, 2022.
“In the past few years the race usually started in Fairbanks in even years, and Whitehorse in uneven years — generally on the first Saturday in February.
