While the trail runs by Yentna and Takotna, they will not be checkpoints due to COVID-19 concerns. Using Deshka Landing as the start/finish, rather than the nearby Willow is for the same reason. The final 8-hour stop is at Skwentna on the run South. The other 8-hour stop has to be taken in the loop from Rohn to Rohn. The 24-hour stop must be take on the run North at or before Iditarod.

The Dalzell Gorge and Stepping Stones on the way South should be “interesting”.
