EQUIPMENT PREPARATION
VOLUNTEER POSITIONS

There are 13 checkpoints along the route all of which require a pile of equipment to operate. There are signs, tents, pylons, safety equipment and in the case of the overnight checkpoints lights and flashlights. Much of the equipment lives at Sport Yukon and has to be sorted to ensure that each checkpoint receives everything they need to operate. Some of the equipment has to be picked up from various locations around Whitehorse.

These positions are all required before or after the race so are ideal for someone taking part in the race or volunteering on race day.

Please note these positions all require a lot of moving and lifting. Please contact us if you would like more information about the positions
