FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The 2019 Yukon Quest will be a little bit different this time around as race officials have announced that there will be changes made to the 1,000 mile race.
The changes that will be made start with when the teams when they make it to Carmacks, they will then be trucked to Braeburn for a restart.
This is due to a low amount of snow on the trail, and it forces the race officials to make these changes.
Mushers will also have the choice to start between 8 to 14 dogs for the start and then add the rest of their dogs in the Braeburn checkpoint.
The officials will continue to monitor the trail as the race gets closer and closer, as the big one starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday, February 2.
