The Kusko 300 starts this week in Bethel. Like the Kobuk 440, it is considered a middle distance dog sled race and qualifier for the Iditarod. The Kusko 300 coverage can be followed on their website, http://www.k300.org/core, and will feature live tracking from Trackleaders by using SPOT Tracking devices. A nice recap on following the race can be found in this article, http://www.thetundradrums.com/article/1102how_to_follow_the_k300_race_this_year.
Some of our past mushers are entered in this race, including our very Chuck Schaeffer. Chuck is the President of the Kobuk 440 Racing Association and an accomplished distance musher. Please join us in cheering on Chuck Schaeffer and all the mushers in the Kusko 300.
