  • ABOUT US | klondikeroadrelay

    If you're into breath-taking scenery, team camaraderie, physical challenges, and gracious hospitality than you won't find another race like the Klondike Road Relay. In teams of 10, runners travel in the direction that the Gold Rush Stampeders took over the famous White Pass. Depending on the leg, participants will travel through Skagway, Alaska, British Columbia, and into the Yukon finishing along the banks of the Yukon River in Whitehorse. The Klondike Road Relay begins in Skagway and has participants run through the night and into the next day. The 175-kilometre relay is broken into 10 legs, varying in distance from nine-25.6 kilometres. It starts at sea level, ascends to an elevation of 1,004 metres in the first two legs, and descends to 610 metres toward the finish line. ​ Racers will travel through the traditional territories of the Carcross Tagish First Nation, Kwanlin Dün First Nation, and the Ta'an Kwäch'än Council and experience challenging terrain and awe-inspiring scenery. Because the race happens in the north, participants should be prepared for several scenarios. The night sky may be clear and starry while the northern lights dance, but don’t be surprised if it’s foggy, rainy, or even snowing. Rest assured, historically the race has ended on a sunny, crisp fall day in the Yukon’s capital. Whether you are running, walking or a youth participant, everyone is welcome to participate in the Klondike Road Relay. For those that need more time, you can complete our modified course from Carcross to Whitehorse. ​ Need more of a challenge? Why not join the ultra category, where you complete legs 7-10, a 70.7 kilometre distance. The Klondike Trail of ’98 International Road Relay was conceptualized in 1982 by the Tourism Industry Association of the Yukon as a means of attracting visitors to the Territory in the fall. In 1983, the first race took place with approximately 25 teams. LEARN MORE Learn about what we believe and where we want to go in the future!
