Downtown official MYAU hotel in Dawson City

Yann Besrest-Butler will be official race photographer of the MYAU 2015. He already helped with race photography in 2011 along with Mark Gillett. In 2015 Yann will be back and once again take great pictures. If you want to see his work please check out our photo gallery. Apart from taking pictures at great adventures, Yann also likes something a bit more calm. Although, thinking about it, it’s probably just as much of an adventure … just different. Yann is a really great wedding photographer. Check out his website and you will see what I mean. So, if you are planning on getting married anytime soon or know someone who does, he is your man.

Downtown official MYAU hotel in Dawson City

Like in all past editions the Downtown hotel in Dawson City will be our partner hotel. As is the case in the Coast High Country Inn hotel in Whitehorse there is a discounted rate available for MYAU participants. All athletes need to make their own hotel arrangements for Dawson please. Bookings can be done via email to Sarah Edwards (sarah.edwards@yukonhotels.com) or contacting the Downtown hotel directly. Either way, please make sure you mention you are with the MYAU. Then you will get your discount. The Downtown hotel rates per room for the MYAU are:

Single/Double: $112.00
Triple: $127.00
Quad: $142.00

Rates are without tax and breakfast is not included.

Make sure you visit their bar and try the world famous Sour Toe Cocktail – after 430 miles of Yukon Quest trail it will be the grand finale of your adventure!
