ANCHORAGE - The director of the Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race says she will resign at the end of this year's event.
Wendy Morrison has been with the race for four years. She says she will move on to personal pursuits in March, including training her own dogs.
The Yukon Quest is a 1,000-mile race between Fairbanks and Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, that alternates starts and finishes every year. This year's race begins Feb. 6 in Fairbanks.
The president of the Yukon board of directors, Al Doherty, says the race will begin recruitment immediately for a new director so that Morrison's replacement can be part of a full year of race planning.
