Application deadline for the 2008 race is May 1, 2008. Teams will be registered beginning October 15, 2007 on a first-come, first-served basis upon full payment of race entry fees. Confirmation and assignment of team numbers will be issued upon acceptance. Pre-race materials will be mailed out to successful entrants. No entries postmarked after May 1, 2008 will be accepted.


Only 85 canoe and kayak teams will be allowed to enter the 2008 race, excluding voyageurs. The number of solo kayak teams shall be limited to 25, and the number of solo canoe teams shall be limited to 5. The maximum number of teams starting the race shall be 100. Teams are registered on a first come, first served basis upon arrival of completed application and fees. Once the maximum of 85 non-voyageur canoe and kayak teams has been reached, a waiting list will be established, again on a first come, first served basis. To qualify for the waiting list, the official entry form must be completed and a $15 non-refundable fee paid by May 1, 2008. If a team withdraws from the list of 85, the name at the top of the waiting list will be moved up to the entry list. If a K1 or C1 team drops out or if the field is not at the 25-team K1 limit or the 5-team C1 limit, then the race will pick the team from the waiting list with the oldest entry date. If a K2 or C2 team drops, and the race is at the K1 and C1 limit, then the next K2 or C2 team on the waiting list with the oldest entry date will be selected. The slot will be held open for no more than seven (7) days after notification, upon full payment of entry fee. No teams will be added from the waiting list after June 1, 2008.

The Yukon River Quest is an international wilderness race open to participants from all countries. Racers will be required to show proof of identification and age. Canada or US drivers licenses, passports, and birth certificates are acceptable.
