ROUTE INFORMATION

All races will be held along the Klondike Highway with runners and walkers heading into Dawson City on a point to point course.
 
All race distances will end at our Finish line located at the Gazebo in Dawson's Waterfront Park. This means that the Start lines for the various distances will be located 5km, 10km, 21.1km, and 42.2km from the Gazebo. The Marathon start will be located a couple of kms up the Dempster Highway. Transportation to the start lines will be provided as part of your registration package.

Relay Teams: We encourage your team to travel together in your own vehicle if possible. This will allow you to time your hand offs well and cheer on your team mates throughout the race. Please let us know if you require transportation. We will have vans running for those who need a lift.

Relay Legs: This year we have mapped out legs in varying distances to ensure safe transition spots and to provide variety for teams. The distances are: Leg 1 - 6kms, Leg 2 - 10kms, Leg 3 - 14kms, and Leg 4 - 10kms.
 
The route is pretty much flat with slight rolling inclines and declines - barely visible to the naked eye - with a definite downward trend.
 
You'll be running through boreal forest, ponds, swamps, dredge ponds and dredge piles, and June's beautiful wildflowers; all against a backdrop of the Klondike area's various mountain ranges.
 
Runners will use the left side of the highway and will need to be aware of traffic including locals, tourists, and possibly some wildlife. We'll have plenty of signage alerting drivers to the runners on the road and will also have a course crew roaming around if any assistance is needed.
 
Several water stations will be located along the route.

Start Times:
Marathon: 7:00 am
Relay: 7:00 am
Half Marathon (Run and Walk): 8:00 am
10KM (Run and Walk): 10:00 am
5KM (Run and Walk): 9:30 am

*** Shuttle departure times to be announced soon.
 
DUE TO THE NATURE OF THE COURSE WE CANNOT SAFELY ALLOW STROLLERS, BIKES, OR DOGS TO JOIN IN.
