Restricted entry for 2021 Race
Unfortuately due to Covid-19, only Yukon residents may enter the Yukon River Trail Marathon in 2021!
Enjoy the natural beauty of Yukon River valley in Whitehorse, Yukon. For much of the course, you will be running along or above the Yukon River or one of a few small pothole lakes. It's a hilly course (see map on our website for elevation gains and losses).
The race begins and ends in Rotary Peace Park. There is 3.5 km paved path at both the beginning and end of the course. The remainder of the course is mostly single-track, unimproved forest paths. There are many roots so care is needed.
We offer four race categories: full marathon, half marathon, relay, and half marathon walk.
The course is divided into four legs, ranging in length from 8 to 13 km. The marathon and relay routes consist of all four legs. The half-marathon consists of legs 1 and 4.
A relay team can consist of 2, 3, or 4 people. EACH member of a relay team must register themselves. The first person to register a team is designated the team captain. As team captain, your task is to make sure all relay team members use the same team name when they register. The race is capped at 325 participants and sells out quickly so please ensure that all team members register as soon as possible BEFORE registration closes.
