How would you like the opportunity to be part of the Yukon Arctic Ultra adventure and spend an unforgettable time in the arctic wilderness playing a vital role in the smooth running of the race?

If you are lucky enough to be selected as support crew, all you need to do is get yourself to Whitehorse, Canada. Once the Yukon Arctic Ultra starts, you will be provided with full board and lodging for the duration of the race. You too, along with the competitors, will travel up north towards Dawson City. You will experience just as much adventure. You will sleep inside but you may not be really comfortable, you will work long hours and be very tired. And you will love it. Sharing this adventure with the athletes and meeting the locals in some of the most remote places in the Yukon will be an experience which you won’t forget.

You may be monitoring the safety and well-being of the runners from your ski-doo. Perhaps you could be part of the crew out on one of our remote checkpoints and help set up camp. Maybe you will utilize your medical skills under the extreme arctic weather conditions.

Whatever you do, you will have a memorable stay and will leave Canada with a yearning to return.
