Kuskokwim 300 Reading Race

January 13th to February 27th, 2023

The annual “Kuskokwim 300 Reading Race” begins Friday, January 13th, 2023 and ends on Monday, February 27th, 2023.  Shortly after the K-300 Sled Dog Race began, Mikelnguut Elitnaurviat K-300 Reading Race started to promote reading at home and to celebrate the great history of dog mushing when our mail was delivered by dog team in the early 1900’s.


  1. All M.E. students may join the race.

  2. The entire race has 10 checkpoints.

  3. Reach each checkpoint by reading 10 books or 10 chapters.

  4. Teachers will track student progress at school and students will keep track of their own progress on a personal K300 Reading Race map at home. The map will be sent home the day the race begins.

  5. Books can be read to or by the student.

  6. Parents and teachers verify when books/chapters are read by recording the titles on a special checkpoint sheet. Teachers will send out blank checkpoint sheets with January and February learning materials.

  7. Checkpoint sheets are to be signed and returned to the student’s teacher as they are completed.

Parents, please monitor what the children read. While the race is based on the number of books read and not the time spent reading, we encourage that students read at a recreational reading level. Reading to your child is quite beneficial and will also be counted.
