Testimonials:

"I had a marvelous time and had the pleasure of experiencing the fun of Fairbanks and the quiet of mushing on the river - a bit of the magic of the Yukon Quest" - Dawn Beckwell

"The new Starter Program for the Yukon Quest is an awesome experience!  It allowed me a chance to hang out with ‘my’ musher, meet the dogs and the handlers, and really get a feel for how much work goes into just getting to the starting line.  I felt like a part of the Quest family, from the lunch with the mushers to the shuttle back from our drop-off point. The excitement of start day is unbelievable."   - Sharon Johnston

"It truly was an experience of a life time which I hope to repeat" - Betty Miller
