A BIG thank-you to all sponsors and contributors to the Yukon River Quest! You help keep this race going year after year!

If you would like to be a sponsor of the longest annual paddling race in the world, there are several levels to consider.  We are in the process of revamping our Sponsorship Packet. Stay tuned for more information or call the race office if you are interested in becoming a sponsor.


 A fabulous way for Small Businesses who want to help support the event, is sponsorship of a bib or bibs worn by this year’s paddlers. You can support one person in a solo SUP, kayak or canoe, or a team of paddlers. See all the options when available on the  YRQ Bib Sign-up Page


First and foremost, the Yukon River Quest passes through five First Nations: Kwanlin Dun, Ta’anKwachan Council, Little Salmon/Carmacks, Selkirk, and Trondek Hwechin. We thank these First Nations for allowing us access to this beautiful part of the world. Respect this river, respect these traditional lands.
