PLEASE NOTE:  Your registration fee:

  • Does NOT include a rider shirt or other merchandise. If you want any shirts, you must purchase them in addition to your team registration. You can make these optional purchases when registering your team.
    A reminder: the deadline to order shirts is April 5, 2024.

  • DOES include the Saturday night supper (which will be at the SE Alaska Fairground this year which is walking distance from the Finish Line).

 

Waivers & Blue Team Time Sheets

A team representative must bring a completed and signed waiver for each member of their team in order to pick up their race package on the Tuesday (Whitehorse) or Friday (Haines Junction) night prior to the event (see Itinerary schedule for details).

The waiver is available at the bottom of this page for download.  It is the adult (19 and older) and youth (under 19) waivers combined as one document.  Print copies for each rider of whichever waiver(s) you need.

A 'Blue Team Time Sheet' (which is blue) will be in each race package. Teams fill in which rider actually rode each leg and their approximate times. KCIBR uses these as a backup in case a timing stick does not record a time at a checkpoint. 'Blue Team Time Sheets' MUST be handed in within 30 minutes after the Leg 8 rider crosses the Finish Line in Haines. 'Blue Team Time Sheets' are required for Timing & Results Officials to consider any queries, disputes, protests or category awards.

 

Optional Keepsake Shirt to Purchase When Registering Your Team

Rider shirts cost $25.00 each. All taxes are included.  They are a bamboo blend shirt made by Jerico, styles 55 (Mens) and 56 (Womens).  The colour is "retro red".  There will be a very limited number of shirts available at package pickup.  If you want a shirt, it is best to pre-order it when you register your team.  There is also a mechanism to order a shirt after you registered your team but before the April 5 t-shirt ordering deadline.

 

Chest is measured 1" below armhole and length is measured from top neckline of the back.

The menu includes fresh salmon, salads, and desserts.
