24 Hours of Light is a fun-fueled weekend of bikes and beverages held June 23—24, 2018 under the midnight sun in Whitehorse, Yukon

The rules are simple

No lights allowed

This is the only 24 hour race in the world where lights are illegal. Ride all night long with the glow of the midnight sun as your guide!

Ride as much as you want

...or as little as you want. Be competitive or just have fun with your friends. You can enter as a solo rider or with a 2, 4 or 5—8 person team. We have youth categories, a race for kids, and a new family category that lets everyone ride the course that matches their age!

No dogs

Hey, we all love riding and hanging out with our dogs. Trust us when we say it just doesn't work at this event, not on the course or in the campsites. Please leave your dogs at home.

What About the Course?

The course is undergoing constant improvements but what we can tell you is that it's approximately 12.5 km with 277 m of elevation. It has as much elevation gain as elevation loss and it includes fast flowy singletrack, as well as strategically placed double track to allow passing.

The youth race is 6 km, the mini bike course 1.5 km and the run bike course 150 m.

Course profiles will be posted on our Facebook page.


There is no way we could pull this off without our amazing sponsors. They help us put on the event and they have put up a ton of awesome swag and prizes for everyone who signs up. So what are you waiting for?
