The first of the two long, long distance sled dog races of the season is getting underway today.
24 teams will run the trail from Fairbanks, AK for 991 miles (1594km) to Whitehorse, YT.
Last year's winner, Sebastian Schnülle, took 9 days and 23 hours to finish the race.
Good luck to all competing mushers and their teams!
