DAWSON CITY, Yukon — Dog teams aren’t alone in running the Yukon Quest trail this winter.

The 1,000-mile trail between Whitehorse, in Canada’s Yukon, and Fairbanks gets packed down each year for the sled dog race and marked with wooded stakes topped with reflective tape. The existence of the long cross-country route attracts runners, bikers, skiers and snowmachiners in addition to Quest teams.
