Mushers and the Yukon Quest 1,000 Mile International Sled Dog Race will have no gaps in space and storage, thanks to Summit Logistics.
Summit Logistics has provided the location and equipment for two integral and logistics-heavy events, food drop, and pre-race vet check, in Alaska for many years. Food drop takes place on January 20th where dog food, musher food, and supplies for the trail are handed over in bags marked with designated checkpoints to the race organization for distribution to each checkpoint. The pre-race vet check takes place on January 28th where mushers bring in their team to undergo a thorough physical examination.
Summit steps up year-round by supplying the Yukon Quest with two storage containers for the race to hold their logistics equipment, straw, and trail markers. Additionally, they provide the use of three mobile field trailers which are used to house mushers, volunteers, and race personnel at the Two Rivers and Mile 101 checkpoints as the race passes through.
“Summit Logistics providing space and storage year-round definitely eases our mind when it comes to logistics,” says Marti Steury, Yukon Quest Executive Director – Alaska. “The mobile field trailers they provide make a huge impact at Two Rivers and Mile 101 as they are the only shelters available at these checkpoints. Volunteers, mushers, and race personnel rely on them for a place to cook, sleep, and stay warm from the moment they set up the checkpoint until they tear it down.”
“Supporting the Yukon Quest is part of our culture here at Summit Logistics,” says Michael Repasky, Owner, Summit Logistics. “We’ve been a proud sponsor of the Yukon Quest since 1987 and are honored to be a part of its rich and storied history.”
