Over 40 Juneau teams make trip north for race

A pair of relay teams assembled with mostly Juneau runners finished the Klondike Trail of ‘98 International Road Relay with two of the fastest 10 overall times.

The Longest Game of Tag Ever (third overall, second in mixed division) and C.C. Striders (10th overall, third in open division) were just two of the 45 teams from the capital city to join the 110-mile relay that takes place almost exclusively on the highway connecting Skagway and Whitehorse.
