YK2HR Cancellation

Monday, March 30th, 2020

YK2HR Ride for 2020 is cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Government of the Northwest Territories has advised all organized events, indoor or outdoor, be cancelled. We believe that is the right advice. There is no indication when this advice would be rescinded.

We considered postponing the YK2HR. However, the uncertainty of the postponement date is unlikely to be satisfactory to many registrants. Regretfully, we made the decision to cancel.

Please be assured all registrants will receive their full refunds by April 17. The refunds will be issued by way of an email transfer. 

We will plan a one-day Ride to the North Arm Territorial Park (105 km) if the GNWT’s advice for the cancellation of organized events is lifted by the end of May. This announcement, if the event goes ahead, will be posted on the Yellowknife Multisport and the YK2HR websites, the respective Facebook pages and emailed to all registrants.

Stay safe and see you at the YK2HR 2021!
