Quest Guest is a unique way for Yukon Quest fans to get a behind-the-scenes perspective of the race. Winning bidders will get the opportunity to join "their" musher for an experience of a lifetime at the start line of the Yukon Quest on Saturday, February 3rd, 2018 in Fairbanks, Alaska. They will receive a special access pass to the staging area and will ride in a second sled behind the musher and the dog team for the first ~1.5 miles of the race! In addition, winners will be able to sit down for lunch with their musher on Thursday, February 1st and will receive a ticket to the Start and Draw Banquet the same day. Each Quest Guest will also receive a signed poster and a picture taken with their musher. Individual mushers may choose to add additional "perks" to their online auction! Click on each musher's name in order to see what is included in their package. Details of the program and everything that is included are listed on the information tab on each musher's page. Net proceeds of the program are included in the race purse and directly benefit the mushers.
