Overview

The 120 mile race finishes at the First Nations Hamlet of Fort McPherson and begins at the Eagle Plains hotel on the Klondike Highway.Just 23 miles from the starting gate, racers cross the Arctic Circle at a latitude 66 degrees, 33 minutes. From there, they follow the snowed-over Dempster highway either 120 miles or 350 miles to the Arctic Ocean. The constant sub-zero temperatures and hurricane-strength Katabatic winds have literally reduced people to crawling.
