7th and Broadway, Skagway, AK
Runners! I'm looking to put a team together (as few as 4 people total, as many as 10) for the Klondike Road Relay. I've never done it but have heard AWESOME things. (You run overnight and through Canada!) Segments are of varying length: 5.6 miles to 16 miles, some uphill and some downhill. Not looking to set any course records, just to have fun, so all abilities are welcome! (Full disclosure: I am eyeing the 16 mile leg.)
A brief description of the race along with a link to last year's race packet is below. Please give both a read and post in the comments if you're potentially or definitely game to join in the fun. Entry fee for an entire team is $700, which is quite manageable if I can assemble a enough people.
The race will commence on Friday evening in Skagway, Alaska. It follows the trail of the Gold Rush Stampeders over the famous White Pass, through British Columbia, and into the Yukon, finishing on Saturday along the banks of the Yukon River in Whitehorse. https://www.klondikeroadrelay.com
"The relay is run on paved highway throughout the night and into the next day over challenging terrain and breathtaking scenery. The weather often varies from beautiful starlit night with displays of northern lights, to cloudy, foggy, rainy, and sometimes snowy conditions. More often than not, the race ends on a sunny, crisp fall day in the Yukon’s capital. The 176.5km relay is broken into 10 legs, varying in distance from 9km to 25.6km. It starts at sea level, climbs to an elevation of 1004 meters in the first 2 legs and descends to approximately 610 meters towards the finish line.
Team of 4-10 participants run in various categories with each team being permitted one support vehicle."
