The Yukon Quest International Association (Canada) is pleased to announce that Abi Horobin has joined the staff in the role of Race Operations Manager, reporting to the Executive Director.
Abi will oversee race planning and logistics as we prepare for the 2024 Yukon Quest, and will be the main contact for race officials, volunteers, and mushers during the race.
Abi joins the Yukon Quest following roles in the expedition and outdoor education industries. She has planned and led expeditions across the globe including in Africa, Australia, North and South America and Europe. She has served as leader on expeditions in remote locations and through challenging environments. These roles gave her unique insight into the obstacles faced when organizing supplies and logistics for difficult terrain and conditions, as well as the importance of teamwork, communication, and organization. These insights and skills will be essential as she settles into the Race Operations Manager role and helps make the necessary preparations for the success of the Yukon Quest.
Abi moved to the Yukon with her husband in 2019, drawn by a love of wilderness. She has worked as Manager of Education and Programming at the Yukon Wildlife Preserve, and more recently, as Volunteers Coordinator with the Yukon River Quest. She is also an active member of the Yukon Search and Rescue Team.
