2009 Wilderness Classic: Official Results

Tim Mowry of the Fairbanks Daily News Miner wrote this story about Steve Taylor and Forrest Karr. Worth a read.

If you want to do the Classic, I'd suggest that you put in at least as many miles as the race is long within three weeks of doing it, and preferably within one month. Think: Lance Mackey's dogs, the Quest and the Iditarod.
