40 YEARS OF RACE HISTORY
Breath-taking scenery. Epic challenges. Yukon hospitality
The Klondike Road Relay follows the White Pass, the historic trail used by the Gold Rush Stampeders. Beginning in Skagway, Alaska the race cuts through British Columbia and ends in Whitehorse, Yukon; passing through the traditional territories of the Chilkoot Tlingit people, the Carcross Tagish First Nation, the Kwanlin Dün First Nation, and the Ta'an Kwäch'än Council.
This historic route remains challenging and awe inspiring even in modern times; spanning 175 km (109 miles) and rising to over 1,004 metres (3293 feet) in elevation.
Runners should expect the unexpected. Northern weather changes quickly and can include fog, rain or even snow. Likewise, it can include clear nights, aurora-filled skies, and sunny afternoons at the race finish.
The Klondike Road Relay is an epic experience unlike any other race and we encourage all levels and ages to participate. Runner or walker; adult or youth; the full race or our shorter, modified route (or 70 km ULTRA) - the KRR is for everyone!
