Volunteer with the Yukon Quest

The Yukon Quest is a volunteer effort from beginning to end. This epic 1,000 mile international sled dog race would never have been possible without the volunteer efforts of thousands of dedicated individuals all of whom have lent a hand ... and sometimes much more - over the past 34 years. Volunteers are a vital support to race operations, office administration and fundraising.  The Yukon Quest welcomes volunteers from all over Alaska, the Yukon and around the world.  Join our incredible volunteer team.

We are very excited and looking forward to seeing you in Fairbanks, Alaska for the Official Start on Saturday, February 3rd or for Finish Week in Whitehorse, Yukon between February 12th and 17th, 2018. Volunteer and Visitor Planning documents provide an overview of the Yukon Quest, as well as volunteer information for the 2018 Race. In these documents you will find maps, checkpoint descriptions, tips on clothing and weather, travel industry details, etc. If you still have questions or concerns after reading these documents, please contact either Yukon Quest office.
