FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - The 1st Annual Yukon Quest Charity Golf Scramble is set to tee off Saturday in effort to raise funds for the historic race. Those interested can register through Friday morning for a day of dogs, golf and food at the Fairbanks Golf Course.

“We are going to have a number of mushers out there, Brent Sass, I think Allen Moore and a few others and hopefully we will have a dog team out there running around the course just for the fun of it,” said Quest Board Member Mark Weber. “Just a lot of different things that will be a lot of fun for the participants.”

In June, the Alaska and International Yukon Quest Board of Directors released a joint statement saying they will not run the traditional 1,000-mile race between Fairbanks and Whitehorse in 2022. Each side of the border will host a 300-mile race, with Fairbanks’ February 5 race still in the works. The Yukon side is scheduled to host the ‘YQ 300′ on February 19.
