Yukon Quest

One night in the summer of 1983, two pressmen from the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner - Iditarod veteran LeRoy Shank and Roger Williams - and a few others met up at a Fairbanks watering hole and began to discuss starting a new local 100-mile race. Before the night was done, the event had stretched into a 1,000-mile epic journey between Fairbanks, Alaska and Whitehorse, Yukon.
