All 13 mushers competing in the 2015 Hudson Bay Quest are off and running from Gillam, Manitoba towards the finish line in Churchill, Manitoba. Mushers and dog teams can be tracked live throughout the race on: Hudson Bay Quest 2015 Live Tracker. The race skirts Wapusk National Parc, a major polar bear denning protected area, to the east.
The weather is cooperating for this years start with the frigid cold temperatures waning this past week and providing somewhat more comfortable conditions for both dogs and mushers alike. Good luck to all teams in the race and stay safe on the tundra!
