26 miles to Tolsona
Tolsona Lake Resort
The resort is found in the community of Tolsona at Mile 170.5 of the Glenn Highway. This fast-paced checkpoint is a favorite with the spectators, for they can see the mushers zoom through and head down the final leg of the race.
23 miles to Glennallen
Check back soon for information on the route this year's race will take through Glennallen, Alaska.
59 miles to Chistochina
Chistochina Village Hall
Chistochina, found at Mile 32.7 of the Tok Cutoff, began as an Ahtna fish camp and later became a stopover place for traders, trappers, and prospectors. The leg between Chistochina and Paxson is the longest and most grueling of the race.
72 miles to Paxson
Paxson Lodge
The northernmost checkpoint is located at Mile 185.5 of the Richardson in the community of Paxson. Here the Denali Highway heads west towards Cantwell.
60 miles to Sourdough Creek

Sourdough Creek
