23. Competitiveness Rule
The Race Marshal shall at any time withdraw or disqualify a Musher they feel is not making a true
attempt at running a competitive race or is in a position to not keep up with the race thus endangering
themselves, their dogs and/or causing undue burden upon the Yukon Quest organization. The Race
Marshal shall make this call based upon the condition of the team, trail and weather conditions,
attitude and skill level of the musher and the pace at which the team and other teams are traveling.
Any musher whose conduct, lack of skills and/or conditioning of their team to meet trail conditions
which would expose the team or musher to personal risk in the judgment of the Race Marshal, shall
also be withdrawn or disqualified.
47. Lost Team: ...The musher may continue the race after their team
is recovered, whether it is on foot, with assistance from another musher or mechanized vehicle...
Rude behavior or inappropriate actions by a musher or handler may result in a penalty,
withdrawal, or disqualification. This includes any publication, sharing, posting or comments
deemed false, derogatory or negative towards any musher, race personnel, volunteer, the
Yukon Quest organization or their supporters. The rule is in effect from musher sign-up until 30
days after the finish banquet.
