News update

Over the last few months a lot of communication with the athletes participating in the Montane Yukon Arctic Ultra 2022 was done by email. I will now switch to updates here on the website. That way also people who are not in the race can follow latest developments and the topics we cover.

Travel to the Yukon

I landed in Whitehorse late last night. But I guess I should start at the beginning. At Munich Airport, Lufthansa had a surprise for me in store. I do travel with quite a bit of luggage but by the terms Lufthansa state on their website I should even gotten away with a EUR 90 charge for extra luggage. It ended up being EUR 250. I would have loved to get that information before but after 2 hours of trying their hotline last week and failing to find where I can book extra luggage online, I had given up and told myself I will deal with it at the airport. Anyway, I guess what I am trying to say is that surprises with luggage can always happen.

Another thing that became obvious in Munich is that check-in can be slow. All it takes is some less experienced staff and you spend about 30 minutes at the counter. They needed to check all Covid-19 related paperwork and deal with some questions I had. The people behind me who were late for their flights were not amused … So, I recommend being at the airport earlier than you normally would.

Upon arrival in Vancouver, Lufthansa told the passengers that any luggage for connecting flights will go straight to the final destination. No picking up luggage and bringing it through customs. I have no idea if this is now true for all countries/flights/airlines? I am sure you will also be told when you get to Vancouver or Toronto.

They don’t make you fill in the paper forms anymore that you used to hand in with the border control agent. I thought maybe they use the ArriveCan App for that. But I was wrong. Upon arrival you get to an area with touch-screen terminals and you need to answer travel information there and get a printed receipt – that you then hand in at border control.

The gentleman who controlled me informed me that I am selected for a random Covid-19 test. I had not pre-registered because I had no Canadian phone number. When then registering at the counter of the test center, I needed to give the full Canadian (hotel) address, my email and also a Canadian phone number. I ended up giving them the phone number of the hotel I am staying at. In hindsight, I could have done this before when pre-registering and used this number. It did not delay my testing by too much. I think maybe 5 to 10 minutes. The test was then done and I was told I can continue to the Yukon – no questions or discussions about my ArriveCan App, quarantine plan, etc. You get some information sheets that confirm what we all already know, i.e. once in Whitehorse, you need to quarantine until you receive the test result. And I will get back to that later. Overall, I would say the test procedure from start of conversation to end took about 20 to 30 minutes. I have no idea if they would always only get the right amount of random tests or if there is potential for a bottle neck?

Once in Whitehorse, another little surprise. At the moment, there are no hotel shuttles. All my luggage arrived and then I went outside where quite a few other travellers were waiting for taxis. You normally don’t have to call a taxi. They will keep coming for as long as there are people waiting. Since I was pretty much last in line, it took a while …

Your stay at the Best Western Gold Rush Inn

Check-in at the Gold Rush Inn was quick and the staff on duty was helpful and very friendly. Please keep in mind that you wear your mask in the hotel and that you are not to leave your room until you get a negative test result – hopefully the next day. Until you get the test result you need to order food to your room. I will confirm with front desk if they can set up some kind of room service.

Delayed test results

Now we get to the tricky part. When you get tested in Vancouver (not sure if it’s the same in Toronto), you get informed that it takes 1 to 3 days to get your test results. If you do not have your test results after 2 days, you can call a phone number. However, if they are slow because there are too many people to test and not enough staff, a call may not have too much impact/speed things up.

Therefore, we are faced with a scenario where some of you are stuck in quarantine for up to 3 days. It may totally mess up your pre-race schedule. That’s why I want to make the promise to you that we will find ways to deal with it. We are in this together now and if you really are stuck for 3 days, you will still get your MYAU experience. Whatever it is, we will figure out a solution. And don’t get too worried about it because A) the 3 days are likely just a worst case scenario they have to communicate and B) if it happens, we can’t change it anyway.

The marathon

For the marathon there are not too many changes. Just some marathon-specific reminders:

  • You need to join us during the online briefing February 2nd at 9 AM. Invitation email with a link (zoom meeting) will follow. We will start with the marathon details and then you can leave the meeting early. If you absolutely can’t make the briefing, I will post a written version of it here in the news.
  • There is no gear check for marathoners. You need to have all the gear you need to cope with the temparature range of the day. And depending on the day’s weather and your speed, this range could be anything from + 5 degrees Celsius to – 45 degrees Celsius. Also, you definitely should take a headlamp with you. Just in case.
  • As always there is minimal support, i.e. we have a roughly half-way point at Takhini Bridge with hot water and we have the finish line at Muktuk. At Muktuk you can have a meal and something hot to drink.
  • If you have friend and family following you that day, they can see you at Takhini Bridge – but they can’t give you any food or drink. Also, I am not sure what the snow situation is like driving down to the river. I hope it will be fully ploughed and there won’t be a problem, but I can’t promise it.
  • All local runners who have family or friends picking them up at Muktuk, please let me know. Then I won’t book a transfer.
  • Marathoners can give us a drop bag for their finish line. Like any drop bag it needs to clearly marked with a name, race number and „Marathon“ or „Muktuk“. Hand in of the drop bags at the Best Western Gold Rush Inn (Town Hall) from February 2nd from 17:00 until 22:00.
  • IMPORTANT: Marathoners initially run past the Muktuk checkpoint. You do not enter the Muktuk property when you get there. You run past it until you get to a turn-around some km ahead. We have a snowmobile guide parked at that point. When you get to where this guide is, you turn around and then, once back at the Muktuk property, you leave the Takhini River.
  • If you have friends and family come pick you up at Muktuk, please tell them:
    • To drive carefully once they are on the driveway to the Muktuk Lodge (there could be dog teams crossing!).
    • The driveway around the dogyard needs to remain clear, i.e. they must not block it with parked cars.
    • If they want to say „hi“ to the dogs, they must approach Muktuk staff first.
    • Unfortunately, they can’t go into the lodge to warm up – they must use their vehicles for that.
    • When they leave the car and interact, they should keep their (2 m) distance and wear masks.

Some reminders to all athletes

  • If you have not done so already, remember to get your eTA (electronic travel authorisation) for Canada.
  • Remember to download and use the ArriveCan App.
  • Follow the pre-travel test requirements.
  • Make print-outs of all your travel related paperwork (e.g. vaccination certificates, pre-travel test result – all these documents should be in English).
  • Don’t forget to do you BICO and email your pdf-certificate to me.
  • Don’t forget to take the originals of all your Application & Waiver forms with you (unless you already sent it to me via postal service).
  • Don’t forget to take the copies of your filled-in Application & Waiver forms with you.
  • Don’t forget to bring your proof of insurance with you (e.g. copy of the certificate). Please do not hand in the full set of terms and make sure whatever insurance you have it does not exclude an event like the MYAU.
  • Please make sure you take with you whatever technology you need to be able to attend a zoom online meeting.
  • Please make sure you have enough masks with you (and I am not talking about balaclavas ;-).
  • Most important of all, please take some patience with you and a whole lot of humour.

Distribution of rental gear

It’s my goal to have all rental gear distributed to the athlete’s rooms. I want the gear to be there upon your arrival – provided hotel management are okay with that.

Gear test

All athletes who do the training course do not have to come to a separate gear test. All athletes who are not in the training course, I will soon communicate the schedule for it.

Race start

We still plan on having our start at Shipyard’s Park. There will be transport offered to bring the pulks to the start line. Athletes then either need to walk (it’s about 15 to 20 minutes) or take a taxi.

In order not have an issue with the max. 50 people limit we may implement a start in intervals. Details will follow.

It’s hard for me to have to say it but I would ask any locals not to come to the start line this year. I am not sure how authorities would „count“ you. Even if you keep a certain distance I imagine visitors may be counted a spart of the overall 50 person limit. Also, if it’s very cold we can’t give you access to the Shipyard’s Park building. It’s for athletes and crew only. BUT even athletes likely can only access the building to use the washroom.

Weather and trail update

As these last few weeks have confirmed, regarding the weather, anything is possible. From +5 degrees Celsius during the daytime to -55 degrees Celsius at night. It’s too early to make prediction right now. Yes, closer to race time we will have a better idea. However, even if at the start line it’s fairly warm, it can drop again within a day or two. So, as always, basically be prepared for the worst/coldest.

Since the weather changes a lot, trail conditions change a lot, too. Thanks to Gary Rusnak at the moment we can say there is a trail from Whitehorse to Muktuk. It keeps being snowed in but it’s there. More updates will follow.

Another thing that is certain, is that there is going to be significant overflow on lakes and rivers. That means DO NOT STEP OFF THE TRAIL when you are moving on lakes and rivers. If the trail is completely blown in and you can’t follow it, it’s better to wait until a snowmobile drove over it again.

So much for today. Please keep checking back as there may be some news pretty much every day now.

Good news and pretty good news

Before anything else, I want to wish all of you participting in and following the Montane Yukon Arctic Ultra 2022 a HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR!

As you can imagine the latest developments because of the Omicron variant are also affecting our race. The athletes currently on the race roster were informed in detail by email update on December 29th. With this post I want fill in all of you about what is going on.

In general, it’s been a difficult few weeks. However, looking at the “bright side of life”, I prefer to say that we have good news and pretty good news. Long story short, the marathon and 100 mile race will go ahead as planned. For the 300 milers we will do an out-and-back of 150 miles each way. The athletes signed up for this distance will go beyond Braeburn for about 50 miles, turning around on Mandana Lake. Then they will come back to Whitehorse. Because of this change but also because of the continuing issues for travelling in times of Covid-19, some athletes decided to cancel. But we still have enough participants on the race roster to justify putting the MYAU 2022 on.

With the change to the 300 mile distance we are following the recommendation of the Yukon’s acting Chief Medical Officer „… that travel between communities, and from communities to Whitehorse, be avoided until further notice“. In addition, it is my understanding that First Nations in Carmacks and Pelly Crossing would rather not get any visitors at the moment.

Regarding travelling into Canada, I am still waiting for an answer on what authorities consider an acceptable quarantine location in Whitehorse for an international tourist. Right now this is an essential question in order to avoid headaches when travelling into Canada. Once I have the answer all MYAU athletes will be informed again by email.

Also, to all athletes who will join us in February, please remember to download and use the new ArriveCAN app. Furthermore, and that has nothing to do with Covid-19, international travellers need an eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization).

Other impacts the current rules may have on the MYAU 2022:

  • We may not be able to have the race briefing as we normally would – due to restrictions on the maximum number of people allowed in a venue that takes place inside. If this is the case I will offer a briefing that takes place online, we will record it and make it downloadable. I will also provide a written version of it.
  • We may not be able to have our pre-race dinner on February 2nd – same restrictions as above.
  • Athletes will likely have to wear a mask when inside or in close contact with the crew.
  • There may be restrictions on how many people are allowed to sleep inside at a checkpoint.
  • It may influence what we provide for meals and where we provide meals.

There will likely be other things we still need to deal with.

IMPORTANT: All athletes who have not received the latest email updates, please contact me asap.

Kahtoola sponsors MYAU 2022

There are more dangers to the winter than hypothermia and frostbite. It’s an obvious one! Yes, I am talking about slippery surfaces due to ice or snow. Right when I started organising the Montane Yukon Arctic Ultra, almost 20 years ago, I knew it’s something I should look into. I quickly came across Kahtoola, a US-based company that was started by climber Danny Giovale in 1996. He had slipped on snow while descending from a mountain in the Italian Dolomites. Afterwards, he searched for a packable traction device for flexible footwear that could be used in more versatile situations than a bulky, heavy mountaineering crampon. Back then, Danny did not find anything that convinced him and invented the first KTS Hiking Crampon for flexible boots. The rest is history.

Since then Kahtoola has invented their famous MICROspikes which have helped make mountain adventures a lot safer. This combination of a chain and spikes is light, compact and super easy to use on any running or hiking shoe, and makes them well suited for steep, challenging snow and ice.

Another great product for winter running are the Kahtoola EXOspikes. They excel on a wide variety of terrain and surfaces because of the innovative profile and spike solution they feature. Plus the EXOspikes are incredibly abrasion-resistant and you can leave them on if your run or hike takes you over areas with no snow or ice cover. From fall to spring, when there is a chance of coming onto slippery trails in the mountains where I live, I have got my EXOspikes with me.

For the MYAU you can use either. The MICROspikes will give you a bit more grip on the steep up- and downhills. If your plan is to mainly use your spikes for those situations and otherwise you are confident you will be fine without them, that’s the product you should go for. If you feel more comfortable with traction also in less steep terrain and you want to wear them as a precaution a lot of the time, then I recommend the EXOspikes. They will feel more natural when the surface is hard.

For more information about Kahtoola please check out their website kahtoola.com.

Cumulus Excuistic 1500 – the official MYAU sleeping bag

At any multi-day winter adventure the sleeping bag is a key piece of equipment. It will determine if you have a great night’s sleep or if you suffer. In really tough conditions it can even make the difference between life and death. So, when it comes to your choice of sleeping bag you do not want to compromise. At the same time, for most adventures weight and space are important factors. You want that durability and warmth but you also want to save as much weight and space as possible. Cumulus has got sleeping bags that have these traits. That is why I am super happy to announce that the Polish company Cumulus is now our official partner for sleeping bags.

Every product that is designed at Cumulus has to be as light as possible. They use advanced technical solutions, world-class fabrics and constantly improve their manufacturing techniques to achieve this goal. Cumulus was founded in 1989 by Zdzisław Wylężek who knew about the superb qualities of Polish down. From the beginning, Cumulus has closely cooperated with PERTEX® who also are a main sponsor of the MYAU. Combining their lightweight fabrics with Polish down, Cumulus started the production of quality sleeping bags. By now they are an internationally recognized brand used by outdoor professionals all over the world. They completely control the production, which is fully based in Poland and meet highest ethical standards.

The official MYAU sleeping bag is the Excuistic 1500. Cumulus have created the Excuistic series with polar and winter alpine expeditions in mind. In designing them they used not only their vast experience in the production of down sleeping bags, but we also carefully listened to the needs of users. All Excuistic bags are filled with 900 Fill Power best Polish goose down and made with the reliable, water resistant outer fabric PERTEX® Quantum Pro 36 g/m². The Excuistic 1500 has as many as 71 down chambers, and their arrangement in two layers minimises the risk of creating cold spots. The side panels, running along the length of the sleeping bag, further reduce the possibility of any migration of down and help to stabilise it where the risk of disturbing efficient insulation is the highest. The advanced design of the hood and of the foot box gives extra protection to the most vulnerable parts of the body. The hood is adjusted by elastic cords, and the long pullers on the sliders are easy to grab with thick gloves. The sleeping bag has two internal mesh pockets, thanks to which it is easier to manage the pockets’ contents. The wider cut makes it possible to sleep in large expedition clothing and also to keep several items in it that most need protection from the cold. Cumulus have applied all these solutions while bearing in mind the need to keep the weight of the sleeping bag as low as possible, so that it still weighs only 2,280 g, of which 1,500 g is down.

Cumulus Excuistic 1500 Features:

  • Fill: 900 Fill Power ethically sourced Polish goose down
  • Shell: PERTEX® Quantum Pro 36 g/m², 20-denier ripstop, DWR finish (100% Nylon)

Don’t forget your BICO!

Hypothermia and cold injuries are amongst the main concerns when participating in any outdoor activity in winter. So, knowing how to avoid these dangerns is very important for all MYAU athletes. Unfortunately, we also know that – even with perfect preparation – participants can suffer from both, hypothermia and frostbite. In that case it’s important to know the warning signs, different stages there are and how to treat any injuries. This not just goes for self-analysis but also for a scenario where an athletes comes across a fellow competitor who is in trouble. When this happens, knowing how to help can safe someone’s life.

Therefore, I am very happy that the “Baby It’s Cold Outside” course exists. It’s an awareness and educational program about hypothermia and cold injuries developed for professional Search and Rescue Responders. It’s also great for anybody venturing out into nature during the cold time of the year.

So, as we have done it in the past, any athlete in the MYAU needs to do the BICO course. It’s online, it’s free of charge and it can be split up over several sessions if need be. At the end of the course the system issues a certificate. To all athletes, please email me your certificate once you have done the course. Personally, I suggest you do it just a couple of weeks before the race. That ways things will be fresh in your memory. If you already did the course earlier this year, I suggest you do it again. Unless you are 100% sure you still know the answers.

Coast Mountain Sports – Services for MYAU athletes

Once again Cost Mountain Sports will be available for MYAU athletes to fill their fuel bottles. If you are signed up for our 2022 race just come to Coast Mountain Sports between January 27th and February 2nd, bring your empty fuel bottles (max. 2) and they will fill these up for you. Athletes who rented a stove will get 2 empty fuel bottles with their stove kit. After the race you can bring unused fuel back to Coast Mountain Sports again.

Coast Mountain Sports will also offer you the service to reserve any gear that you would like to purchase with them. One item that is always in high demand are Neos Overshoes. Apart from that, they have of course pretty much anything you would need for an extreme cold weather adventure. For enquiries and purchases/reservations, please email Corina Zumer at czumer@tsgyukon.com.

As you may know already, the outdoor industry, like many other industries, is facing problems with stock and logistics. In other words, some products may not be available or only available in lower numbers than normal. Therefore, if you know what you want to buy locally, please email Corina as soon as possible. Due to the shortages Coast Mountain Sports will also ask for pre-payment. Once you email Corina, she will let you know how payment is done.

From Coast High Country Inn to Gold Rush Inn

After almost 20 years of having the Coast High Country Inn (HCI) as a partner hotel, this era will end in 2022. I do not know any details on the current project of turning the HCI into a supportive housing development. However, it’s a fact that now all existing athlete and MYAU bookings have been transferred over to the Best Western Gold Rush Inn. The good news is that both hotels belong to the same company and thus the transition has been smooth.

The MYAU would like to thank Nicole Horlbeck, General Manager at the HCI, and her entire team for the many years of outstanding service. A big thank you also to Northern Vision Development LP (owner of Yukon Hotels) for the continued support.

Meet our official MYAU 2022 photographer

It can be quite challenging to participate in an extreme race like the Montane Yukon Arctic Ultra and take photos at same time. So, we are all lucky to have someone who is willing to suffer for us, getting his fingers cold and driving his snowmobile to very remote places on the trail to capture some magic moments. Someone who shows us, the athletes and everyone back home just how tough, wild and magnificent the MYAU is. After 2019 and 2020 I am very happy to announce that once again Mark Kelly will be our official race photographer. You can have a look at his bio on www.depthoffield.ca. There you will also find great examples of Mark’s work.

For some inspiration, here are a few of Mark’s favourite photos from our last two MYAU editions:

Preparing for the MYAU

Copyright: Swedish Lapland

I am already getting enquiries about the MYAU 2023 and beyond. One of the first questions that usually comes up is on how best to prepare and train for the world’s coldest and toughest ultra? There is no answer that is right for everyone. In general, I would say it makes sense to get as much cold weather training and experience as possible. If you do not already have cold weather experience, how about a training course? Or you could plan a winter tour to a region that does not get quite that cold. Maybe look for a company that offers a guided adventure to begin with? And there are of course other winter races out there that will help you build up your skills and confidence without taking you right to – 50 degrees Celsius and everything that comes with it. In the UK there is the Montane Spine Race and the Montane Cheviot Goat. You will find many other races and great input on the Terra Glacialis website. And most important of all, there is now also the Montane Lapland Arctic Ultra! It features a 185 and 500 km to choose from, all  the typical winter landscapes, Northern Lights and plenty of elevation. Temperatures just don’t get as extreme.

So, there is a lot you can do to prepare for the MYAU. In any case, enjoy it! And if any of you ever have more questions about trainings and winter ultras, please feel free to ask any time.

This is a short video documentary Swedish Lapland filmed last winter while I was working on the development of the Montane Lapland Arctic Ultra. Just for some inspiration. Enjoy watching!

New Montane kit

Copyright: MarkKellyPhotography.ca

Temperatures are getting colder and snow has arrived in the Yukon. Time to look at our kit and see what may be missing or what’s new and exciting. All of Montane’s new winter 2021/2022 clothing is now in stores. As always their range is amazing and they feature many items that work perfect for the Montane Arctic Ultra and any other cold weather adventures. Here are just some of the highlights:

The Montane Axis Alpha Jacket is the ultimate piece of protective clothing for fast-paced activity in cold and changeable conditions. Based on cold chamber lab research and extensively athlete-tested, this jacket has been engineered with body-mapped fabric and insulation technologies from GORE-TEX INFINIUM™, PERTEX AIR and POLARTEC® ALPHA® DIRECT to balance protection from the elements with efficient heat and moisture management, keeping you comfortable when working hard in the elements.

While the MYAU is not necessarily fast-paced, it does require a lot of physical effort and changing terrain and temperatures cause the body to react. You may get cold or too hot. So, any piece of clothing that featues a hybrid construction to deal with what happens when you are working hard, is a great thing. Another issue is the strain of wearing a harness and/or backpack on clothing with insulation. Especially if it’s down. The Axis Alpha Jacket takes this into consideration and offers great solutions.

Construction

  • 30 Denier GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ nylon in the core body and over arms
  • 30 Denier PERTEX QUANTUM AIR nylon across the back and under the arms
  • 120g/m2 POLARTEC® ALPHA® hi-loft insulation across the back, under the arms and in the hood
  • 90g (M) of 90/10 water resistant fluorocarbon-free HyperDRY™ goose down at 800+ fill

Features

  • Micro chamber construction in the core body
  • Fully adjustable roll-away insulated climbing helmet compatible hood with stiffened peak
  • Full-length two-way YKK VISLON front zip with internal storm flap
  • Two zipped hand pockets
  • Concealed zipped chest pocket
  • Pre-elasticated cuffs
  • Adjustable hem with cinchable drawcord

Designed for all types of expedition, the Featherlite Down Pants are a luxuriously warm PERTEX® QUANTUM ECO pant filled with high quality 800+ fill power goose down. Light and packable, they are the ideal way to boost lower body warmth whether as part of a layering system, in a bivi situation or for hut to hut use.

For the MYAU down pants are not a must. There are other options, like having good layers and for the really cold temperatures something with a synthetic fill, like the Montane Prism Pants. But obviously when temperatures reach the absolute extrem and you are not on the move, a down pant will give you extra warmth and comfort. If that’s what you are looking for, look no further!

Construction

  • PERTEX® QUANTUM ECO 100% recycled outer with DWR
  • 140g (M) of 90/10 water resistant fluorocarbon-free HyperDRY™ goose down at 800+ fill

  • Two insulated hand front hand warmer pockets
  • Low profile hem cuffs
  • Montane stuff sac

The Icarus Vest is a classic mid-weight insulated micro baffle vest filled with PrimaLoft® Thermoplume®; a 100% recycled synthetic insulation which mimics the heat-trapping properties of natural down whilst being extremely fast drying. Combined with the PERTEX® Quantum Eco outer fabric which has a DWR for shedding light rain, this is the ideal core body insulation choice for mountain walking in mixed conditions.

Vest are perfect for cold weather activities. They give you warmth where it is most needed, at your core. Thus you can work hard, reduce your sweat and still get enough warmth to the rest of your body.

Construction

  • PERTEX® QUANTUM ECO 50% recycled outer with DWR
