ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Organizers of the 1,000-mile Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race are considering changing the race route this year because of warmer-than-usual weather.

KTUU (https://is.gd/soppzl ) reports there is still open water in Whitehorse in Canada’s Yukon Territory. Race officials are working on plans for an alternate route for the race between Whitehorse and Fairbanks.

The race begins Feb. 7 in Whitehorse.

Organizers say no decision has been made and conditions could still change substantially.

Twenty-six mushers, including four past Yukon Quest champions, are signed up for this year’s race.
