All five Yukon mushers successfully completed the 2015 Iditarod.
Tagish musher Michelle Phillips led the way, crossing the finish line in Nome, Alaska, last Thursday in 20th place out of the 66 mushers to finish. She earned US$12,700 for her efforts.
Rob Cooke (50th) and Brian Wilmshurst (52nd) became the latest Yukon mushers to successfully complete the Yukon Quest and Iditarod in the same year – effectively traveling 2,000 miles by dog sled from Whitehorse to Nome.
Whitehorse mushers Yuka Honda (55th) and Marcelle Fressineau (62nd) also represented the territory in the Last Great Race.
Rookie Alberta musher Jason Campeau, a former OHL hockey player who recently purchased Jake Berkowitz’s kennel, was the top Canadian, finishing in 18th.
Dallas Seavey won the famous 1,000-mile race, while Cindy Abbott was the last musher to finish Sunday.
