Yukon 1000

Pure isolation.
Total exhaustion.
Self survival.

The Yukon 1000 follows the footsteps of early adventurers, immersing you in the raw, untouched wilderness that few humans will ever experience.

The last frontier...

“ More people have been up Everest than have been beyond Dawson City. ”

A race where only the fittest survive

Yukon 1000 challengers must have the physical and mental fortitude to cope with the staggering feat of paddling 18 hours a day; just to complete the race. Completely self sufficient, teams sleep rough where they stop, and in extreme cases must be able to survive in true wilderness.

Can you face the elements?

Whitewater, fallen trees, braided and poorly mapped channels are just some of the challenges entrants will face. One wrong turn forces competitors to backtrack up river in the most isolated grizzly and black bear territory in the world.
