Yukon-1000-512x384Rod Price’s trip down the Amazon paddling a water logged four man river raft was all part of his cross training in preparation for the Yukon 1000, “The world’s longest canoe race.” Aside from the obvious trial of paddling a canoe for a long 1000 miles, the Yukon 1000 presented Rod with obstacles such as rapids one moment and flat still lakes the next. While many of Rod’s competitors were content to literally “go with the flow” and let the current carry them, Rod and partner Ardie were bent upon two things. One was to win the race in record time. The other was to get to a warm bed and a hot meal ASAP.
