Happy New Year, DPSAY members!
It is with a great deal of excitement and enthusiasm that DPSAY and the River Runner 120 race committee announce that the River Runner 120 will run another year. Once again, this awesome mid-distance race will take place on Rendez Vous weekend and will start at Shipyards Park on February 22, 2014 at 4pm. For our newer members, the River Runner 120 is a sled and skijor race that runs from Whitehorse to Mendenhall and back with a 6hrs lay-over at the Mendenhall checkpoint following the Yukon and Takhini Rivers, Dawson Trail and 37 Mile trail to Alaska Highway and Mendenhall. In addition to the 120 miles sled/skijor categories there is a 60 miles skijor category which starts in Whitehorse and ends in Mendenhall.
NEW THIS YEAR!!
Registration for the RR120 opens on January 10, 2014. As per usual, registration will remain open until the day before the race, however, on January 17th, 2014, the RR120 race committee will host a registration night and all those who registered from January 10th to the day of this event will have their names put into a draw to win back their race entry fee.
The race entry fee is $125 for the 120 mile sled/skijor category and $75 for the 60 mile skijor category.
