Welcome to the Reckless Raven 50 Mile Ultra & Relay, the only summer ultra distance trail race North of 60.
July 2, 2017
With beautiful single track trails and quad roads, 3 ridges, 2 peaks, about 361 m of elevation gain, water crossings and fun switchbacks, you’ll be sure to experience the unique landscapes that shape the Yukon. The Raven Conspiracy made sure there was enough suffering along the course that you’d never get bored.
With a start close to downtown Whitehorse, complete facilities at the start and finish, 9 aid stations and checkpoints and delicious catered food, you don’t want to miss this ultra!
Don’t be fooled – this is a tough course, and you should have some mountain running experience under your feet before you try it. You will be running a race on remote trails. The Raven Conspiracy has designed this event to provide as much support as possible, but if you drop out, you’ll need to reach the closest access point, or make yourself comfortable in the bush. THIS SHOULD NOT YOUR FIRST LONG-DISTANCE TRAIL RACE!
