TPZ065: Canoe Racing the Yukon 1000 with Emma Burgeson

Yukon 1000 canoe race

Emma Burgeson and Mitzi Peine were the first female team to compete in the Yukon 1000. It’s the world’s longest paddling race on the Yukon River from Whitehorse, Yukon to a remote Alaska Pipeline crossing near Fairbanks, Alaska. The two are avid paddlers and explorers of the wilderness and met four years ago on a 6-week canoe trip on the Anderson River in the Canadian Arctic. Competing in the tandem canoe category, their team name was The Paddlin Madelines and you can learn more at their Facebook page mitziandemmayukon1000 and at Emma Burgeson, welcome to The Pursuit Zone.
