There are a few changes to the entry process in 2022. A cap of 12 mushers from outside of the Northwest Arctic will be instituted. We will use a waitlist for entries received in excess of 12. We will not take entry fees until after the early entry deadline of March 18th. The final deadline for entry fees and vaccination proof is March 25th.
Our plan is subject to change at any time, given the uncertainty of COVID-19. We appreciate your patience as we navigate race planning and ensuring the safety of Northwest Arctic residents.
