Select one of the mushers for this year's race. Using the Internet or other research sources, complete the following questions.

  • How many miles/Km has your Musher travelled BEFORE the Race even started?


  • How many miles/km will the dog truck travel during the Race? If gas is approximately 1.25/L, and your truck gets 6 km per litre, what would be a good estimate for gas costs?


  • Find out more about your Mushers “hometown”. Where is it and how does it compare in size to Whitehorse?


  • If you could only ask 3 questions of your Musher, what would they be and why?


  • Can you find sources of winter gear that your Musher may be wearing? How much does the average Musher spend on cold weather clothes?
