K300

Brent Sass, 35, of Eureka, Alaska has competed in the Iditarod and the Yukon Quest and is a repeat winner of the Gin Gin 200 but this will be his first K300. He says he knows the conditions will be challenging but the time is right to test out his young team.

Lance Mackey, 44, of Fairbanks is one of the most accomplished mushers in the sport. He is the only musher to win four consecutive Iditarods. He’s also won the Yukon Quest four times. He is now attempting his fourth K300. He last ran it in 2012 when he finished fifth. After a few years of rebuilding his kennel he has three teams in the race this year.
