Want to be involved in YoopAK Kennel's running of the 2020 Yukon Quest 300? Consider sponsoring a checkpoint! Over the 300 mile trail there are six checkpoints. For mushers, checkpoints offer warm shelter for rest, often hot meals prepared by volunteers, a chance to gather their resupplies, and social interaction with humans. In these checkpoints the dogs care is first priority. Dogs are given straw beds and warm meals before settling down for a rest. Veterinarians examine every dog to ensure each is in good health and spirits.
If you would like to sponsor a check point and help the YoopAK team get down the YQ300 trail, following the race you will receive a signed photo of the team from the race trail as our thank-you for getting involved!
