24 Hours of Light is a fun-fueled weekend of bikes and beverages held June 25—26, 2016 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 as well and even a race for kids!

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?

We get a lot of e-mails asking about the course. Sorry, but we can't give you an elevation profile or a strava segment. The course varies each year and is set shortly before the event. Expect 12-14km of flowy singletrack and fast doubletrack that is a blast for all skill levels. It will take most riders 40-60 minutes to do a lap.


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?
