Can you win it? Yes Yukon!
2 Aug 2011
Congratulations to Adam Harmer and Simon Coward for winning the Yukon 1000 race, they came in with a time of 6 days 8 hours and 51 minutes.
Adam is one of our full-time paddlesport coaches and was paddling tandem kayak with his team mate Simon Coward for the race. This is a tough race, the teams have paddled up to 18 hours a day covering 1000km from Whitehorse to the Dalton Highway Bridge through Alaska and Canada on the Yukon River, much of which is in wilderness. Not only that the race was completely unsupported, they have carried all their own equipment, food etc. they needed.
Well done boys!
