Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race (2/5/11) Whitehorse, Canada 1 p.m. to Downtown Fairbanks 1,000-mile (1,600 km) sled dog race between Fairbanks and Whitehorse. Follows early gold rush and mail trails along the Yukon River on rugged North Country terrain. This international race alternates the start: Fairbanks on even-numbered years, Whitehorse on odd-numbered years. First mushers can be expected to cross the Finish Line in Fairbanks by about Feb. 18, when there is an awards banquet.

"The 2007 Yukon Quest was a cold-weather, endurance run, almost from start to finish. Temperatures along the trail were reported as low as -55 F (-48 C) and rarely climbed above -10 F (-23 C). Lance Mackey ran a near-perfect race, gauging the abilities of his dogs and adjusting to the changes in trail and temperatures. His total run time of 10 days, 2 hours and 37 minutes established a new Yukon Quest time record for running the 1,000 mile trail between Whitehorse and Fairbanks, knocking over 1/2 day off the previous record from 1995." 

http://www.yukonquest.com (907) 452-7954, yukonquest@mosquitonet.com

Special Notice: Starting in 2000,  there were 2 more races added. The Yukon Quest sponsored The Yukon 250  at 4 P.M. the same day. This race from Fairbanks to Circle City serves primarily as a qualifier race for the Yukon Quest, and the Iditarod, which is always held the first Saturday in March. The trail takes mushers over the scenic Eagle and Rosebud Summits. The very next day, the Yukon Quest is  sponsored the Junior Yukon Quest for mushers ages 14-17. This race started at 10 A.M. and was a long distance race of 120 miles to Chena Hot Springs Resort. For more information, call (907) 452-7954, fax (907) 452-7959.

Gold Run Sled Dog Race (2/19-20/11) 2-dog skijor (5.9 mi.), 4-dog (5.9 mi.), 6-dog (7.7 mi.), 10-dog (12.1 mi.) 11 a.m. The Interior's first championship dog race of the season. Mushers' Hall on Farmers Loop Road. Start and finish will be at the Jeff Studdert Race Grounds, 4 Mile Farmers Loop Rd. (907) 488-1357. Admission: Free. Indoor and outdoor spectator viewing. Souvenir and food concessions.  http://www.sleddog.org, (907) 457-6874.  adma@sleddog.org

From the ADMA website: "The Gold Run is held on the third weekend in February and marks the beginning of the championship race season in Fairbanks. By this time, many mushers from the Lower 48, Canada, and Europe have arrived in Alaska and are ready to test their dogs against the top mushers in the world on the fastest and best maintained trails in the world. The Gold Run typically has some of the largest competitive fields of any sprint race in Alaska.

"The 10-dog format was adopted to attract both 8-dog and open class mushers and foster competition among mushers who do not often compete against each other. Sponsors of the Gold Run over the years have included Alaska Feed, Alyeska Pipeline Service Company, Eagle Pak, and more recently Wells Fargo Bank and Annamaet Petfoods.

"The Gold Run has taken over the date on the ADMA race calendar that was occupied in the early years by the Women's North American Championship and later by the Mini North American Championship. The Women's NAC was an open class event held annually from 1952–1976 and again in 1981. Its replacement, the Mini NAC, was a 10-dog race open to both men and women. The format was similar to the Women's NAC, with three heats of 10, 10 and 14 miles. The Mini NAC was run 1978–79 and 1982–84.

"In 1985, the race was shortened to two 12-mile heats. Then, in 1987, a new 6-dog class was added to the existing 10-dog format and the race acquired its present name, the Gold Run. In 1991, a 2-dog skijoring competition was added in which cross country skiers and their dogs race as teams. In 2005, a 4-dog sled class was added to give Interior 4-dog mushers enough races to qualify for national ranking. "

Tesoro Iron Dog  (2/18-25/12) World's longest, toughest snow machine race from Wasilla to Nome to Fairbanks. Starts with a tech inspection and drawing banquet, and ends with a winners' banquet. The course is over 2,000 miles long. The Iron Dog Pro Class consists of a team of two persons on two snowmobiles and does not require any qualifying races to enter. (907) 563-4414. http://www.irondog.org.  The following paragraphs are excerpted from their 2011 Race Guide.

In preparation, "teams have been hard at work securing sponsors and replacement parts, training for mechanical repairs, packing essential equipment and attending safety workshops." Feb. 18 is the start of the trail class and 11 a.m. Feb. 20 for the pro class. In 2011 there were new new race staff, rules and course changes According to Kevin Kastner, Iron Dog’s new executive director. “. . . the details are very simple: it’s weather dependent. Everything can change until the day this race starts.”

The most notable rule changes involve the mandatory layovers, now with three on the way to Nome and two, plus a hold in Nenana, on the way to Fairbanks. Race teams have a choice of up to three locations for each layover.

The starting line has been moved to Southport Marina, which is still on Big Lake. "According to Kastner this will allow the start to develop into a larger event. Iron Dog will be able to tie into land-based power and services, have fewer vehicles on the ice, and make the start easier to find." Finish line changes actually affect the race the most which, according to Kastner, "have been in the works for nearly two years.. .The route near Fairbanks will take racers on the Tanana River, through Fort Wainwright Recreation Area, through North Pole, to the Corps of Engineers flood project. We’ll come over the dike there and have a new fueling spot as they come onto the flood project.”  They will high-speed it across the flood project, making it an excellent place to watch the race.

Racers will then go back on the Chena River heading toward their finish in downtown Fairbanks, probably near or at the foot bridge. The finish will also coincide with the Tired Iron vintage races and festivities, giving Iron Dog spectators plenty to do and see while waiting for Iron Dog racers to cross the line. It is estimated that the rerouting of the course will add 50-60 miles to the length of the race, making Iron Dog longer than 2,000 miles, but the exact length will not be known until the trail is broken for the entire distance. At the winner’s circle in Fairbanks champions are announced and the race purse divvyed up. The 2011 purse is expected to surpass $125,000, with more than $193,000 in total prizes.

"The purpose of the Tesoro Iron Dog is to provide reliable, consistent, safe and honorable cross-country snowmobile racing and recreational riding in Alaska. This is a team race, consisting of two (2) persons and two (2) snowmobiles (track driven and ski steered). The Trail Class teams may include three (3) or more persons, but each person must have their own machine. The Pro & Masters Class runs from Wasilla to Nome and then finishes in Fairbanks in even numbered years and runs from Fairbanks to Nome and finishes in Wasilla in odd numbered years. The routing may be changed at the discretion of the board.  The routes for Trail Class teams will be determined on a year-to-year basis. Drivers will display honor and integrity throughout all of their involvement with the race. These snowmobilers will brave subzero cold, bad visibility, and deep snow to push their snowmobiles and bodies to the limits to reach the finish line. It is the World’s Longest Snowmobile Race, and it is a true test of machine and driver. The Tesoro Iron Dog Pro, Masters & Trail Class driver will always treat Race Officials with respect and their decisions will be final. Each participant is required to read both the Iron Dog rules and general rules of the ISRA (International Snowmobile Racing Association

Arctic Man Ski and Snow-Go Classic- (4/7-11/10) This is a high-speed race where snow machine drivers pull skiers uphill on a 5 mile (8 km) course, then skiers race downhill. It is a good test of the strength of the athletes and the horsepower of the snowmobiles. "The Arctic Man is one of the World's Toughest Downhill Ski races, and an exciting snowmobile race, all in one. The skier begins at a summit elevation of 5,800 feet and drops 1700 feet in less than two mile to the bottom of a narrow canyon where he meets up with his snowmobiling partner. The snowmobiler meets the skier, on the go, with a tow rope and pulls the skier 2 1/4 miles uphill at top speeds of up to 86 mph. The skier and the snowmobile then separate and the skier goes over the side of the second mountain and drops another 1200 feet to the finish line."
