The Yukon Quest is working its way back toward a full purse for next month’s race. Yesterday organizers announced that recently secured sponsorship means at least 150 thousand dollars can be guaranteed for payout to mushers. The biggest boost in race support comes from Trans Canada. Quest Yukon territory Director Stephen Reynolds says the pipeline company is moving beyond the level of support it’s put toward the race since coming on board on 2007.
