About the Race

You won’t find another race like the Klondike Trail of ’98 International Road Relay.  It offers breath-taking scenery, team camaraderie, physical challenge and gracious northern hospitality.  This relay is Sport Yukon’s annual fundraiser so we thank you for your participation. Have fun!

This year it will be kinda like our traditional race and we are calling it the “Kinda” Klondike Road Relay 2021, to align with current federal and territorial COVID restrictions. Due to the international border closure, the race will take place strictly on the Canadian side of the highway, beginning at the Yukon border, and will be open to local residents only.

In light of the current Covid-19 situation in Yukon we are delaying registration until end of July.  At that point, we will be better able to give you current information about how the race can safely be held and the number of participants who will be able to safely participate in this annual fall event.  The “Kinda” will be an in-person event for Yukoners and we will be offering a virtual event for out of territory runners.  We are excited to be talking with our Alaskan friends who will be announcing an event they are holding in Skagway the same weekend!

The “Kinda” will be a one-day event open to Yukon 5-person running teams who will be pounding the pavement on the traditional KRR legs 6-10. Our walking and youth teams will be completing legs 7-10 as they historically have done.

We encourage you to start gathering your team members, lace up those running shoes, and hit the trails so you are ready to take part in this celebration of community and physical activity.Our end of July registration will be capped based on recommendations from the Chief Medical Officer of Health’s office.

While our American friends and supporters are not able to join us for this year’s live event, we look forward to welcoming everyone back when we return to the original KRR format in 2022.
