The Yukon Energy Dempster to Dawson City Solstice Race
June 6 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT
Mark the longest day in the land of the midnight sun with a run or walk along the Klondike River valley into historic Dawson City. The Yukon Energy Dempster to Dawson City Solstice Race includes a marathon and a relay for runners as well as a half marathon, 10K and 5K for runners and walkers. The route is pretty much flat with slight rolling inclines and declines – barely visible to the naked eye. The run takes you through boreal forest, past ponds, swamps, dredge ponds and dredge piles, and June’s beautiful wildflowers; all against a backdrop of the Klondike area’s various mountain ranges. The event will wrap up with a BBQ dinner and a bit of live music in Dawson City’s Waterfront Park.
$80-100 (marathon); $70-85 (half); $50-60 (10K/5K)
