Yukon Quest - Jim Lanier

Chugiak musher Jim Lanier tries on his snow goggles while giving his 2019 Yukon Quest gear a final check Friday morning in Whitehorse, Yukon. Lanier, 78, is the oldest musher to enter this year’s field, and possibly the oldest ever to start the race. Lanier is a Yukon Quest rookie, but he’s completed the Iditarod 16 times since 1979, most recently in 2013. Feb. 1, 2019.
