What are the race categories?

The race categories are full marathon, half marathon, relay and half marathon walk.  Every participant must register themselves and indicate their agreement with the waiver.

Relay teams of two, three or four runners are allowed. Each team member must register themselves, and all members of the team will need to identify the name of their team when they register.   Each team member must identify the leg, or legs, that they will be running.  

Please note that only total time, not leg (interval) times, will be available for the relay event. To reduce handling the timing device by many people, only the Leg 4 runner will carry the timing stick and “dip” it in the receptacle at the finish line. 

What are the age categories?

There are 5 age categories for Marathon and Half Marathon runners and walkers based on the age on race day:

  • Masters P3 70 years and older
  • Masters PP (Masters Plus Plus) 60 years to 69 years
  • Masters P (Masters Plus) - 50 to 59 years

Young runners can register on line, but must submit a signed hard copy of the parental consent form (found here) when they pick up their bibs. Alternatively, the signed consent form can be scanned and emailed to Please note that bib packages will not be handed out unless a signed parental consent form is received at or before bib pickup. 

How do I register?

Registration for the Yukon River Trail Marathon is ONLY available on-line. Every runner must register individually. If you are a member of the relay team, there is a place on the registration site for the name of your team. The race fee is payable on-line by credit card. On-line registration is available until midnight July 25, unless the race is sold out.

What are the fees?

The registration fee is $60 per person. The shirt is an additional purchase, not included in the registration fee and is optional.

There will be no refunds for registration fees or shirt purchases. Registered participants who cannot take part in the event can however pick up their race package at the bib pick up or  transfer their registration to another participant before midnight July 25. For information on how to transfer registrations, please go to the tab called "Changes and Transfers."

If the race is cancelled because of new or more stringent restrictions imposed by Yukon’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, registered participants can apply their registration fee (and the cost of the race shirt if ordered) to the 2022 race.

Please note that any race packages that are not picked up by the end of bib pickup  are forfeited.

Due to COVID-19, there will be no bib pickup at Rotary Park on race day.  If you are unable to pick up your bib package during the scheduled times, a friend or family member can do so – just send an email to letting us know who will pick up your package.

When and where do we pickup the race package?
