Official 2023 Race Rules for the 23rd Yukon River Quest Marathon Paddling Race are now posted (link below). There will be an overall team limit of 125 teams for the full YRQ, and a total of 25 teams will be allowed in the YRQ 300 (new name for Half Race to Carmacks). There will be only one mandatory stop at Carmacks this year for 10 hours (Minto not possible for a second stop in 2023 but we hope to return there in future years) . Mandatory Support Teams are not required (as in the past, that was due to COVID). However, teams that do not have a Support Crew, will be charged $75/Racer to move their gear, set up their tent in Carmacks, etc. These services are outlined in the rules under Appendix 2.
