Important: Hand-in of all forms of the Application & Waiver

In past years we have always had a few athletes who did not bring along all their forms. Needless to say that this caused a lot of last minute stress for both sides. That is why for 2014 I would like to try something new. All athletes please send all paperwork (originals) by January 15th, 2014 at the latest to Robert Pollhammer, Rathausplatz 14, 82467 Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. Yukon residents can hand-in their paperwork to Shelley Gellatly. Since it is possible that something gets lost in the mail, please make yourself a copy of your filled in forms and bring these along to Whitehorse.

Important Info on SPOT units

The SPOT units are delivered by Trackleaders.com WITHOUT batteries. So, if you rent a SPOT please bring along 3x AAA Energizer Lithium batteries. And it is important that you get specifically these batteries. Due to the cold temperatures regular batteries won’t last long enough.
