The world’s coldest and toughest ultra! Marathon, 100, 300 and 430 miles for Mountain Bikers, XC-Skiers, Skijorers and Runners.


Cost: See http://www.arcticultra.de/en.php?Application for details
Course Description: The Yukon Arctic Ultra will follow the Yukon Quest trail, the trail of the world’s toughest Sled Dog Race.

The marathon finishes just off the Takhini River. The 100 mile racers will go from Whitehorse to Braeburn. The 300 mile racers will keep on going all the way to Pelly Farm. There they will leave the river to turn around and go back to Pelly Crossing on the farm road. The 430 mile athletes will not return to Pelly Crossing. Instead they will continue on the Quest trail to Dawson City. Please note: the 430 mile race will be held every two years and will next take place again in 2009.

The trail will be marked. However, if there is fresh snow or a lot of wind it will be difficult to find the trail. If you want to enhance your ability to understand your orientation, we recommend you use a GPS. You will find necessary co-ordinates and more information on the race course in the “Trail Description”.
