The Yukon River Quest — aka “715km of dehydration, hallucinations and days that never end” — is a mind-bogglingly crazy race experience that pushes paddlers beyond their known limits both physically and mentally.

So we decided to make a movie about it.

After I (and half a dozen other crazy adventurous stand up paddlers) spent three days paddling down 715 kilometres of a very long, very cold and very lonely river, we’ve put together an hour of interviews, insights, drone footage and delirious GoPro monologues to create ‘Chased by the Midnight Sun’ — the story of our “descent into madness.”

The film premieres on the 20th 25th of November soon right here on SUP Racer. I’m still going through the editing process, which has now officially taken longer than the race itself. Probably early to mid December. Hope you enjoy this little trailer while you wait…
