The Montane Yukon Arctic Ultra (MYAU): 04 to 17 February, 2023

Welcome to the world’s coldest and toughest ultra run. 430 miles of snow, ice, temperatures as low as -40°C and relentless wilderness… the MYAU is an incredible undertaking.

Based in Yukon, north west Canada, the race route follows the trail of the Yukon Quest Dog Race. Where dog teams once slid and scrambled, now human power chases up the trail. This is a brutal non-stop race across one of Canada’s most remote regions.
