HISTORY OF TREK

In 1993, a small group of snow-machiners known as the Alaska Trail Blazers arrived in Dawson City from Tok, Alaska. This group journeyed over the Top of the World Highway in winter, which back then was unheard of. Today, this trip has become the “Yukon’s Premiere Snowmobile Event”: Trek over the Top.

In 1994, the Alaska Trail Blazers were approached by visiting riders and plans were made to try and organize a few events. It turned out that 100 snowmobilers made the trip. A few international rides were organized and with the support of the Klondike Visitors Association, Diamond Tooth Gerties Gambling Hall located in Dawson City, Yukon was opened for ‘trekkers.’

Throughout the following years, the popularity of the run rose tremendously. A second run became necessary and then a third. Each run consisted of about 200 participants and runs were extended so trekkers could enjoy an entire weekend in Dawson.

While the majority of participants are our brothers and sisters from Alaska, the Trek has been enjoyed by numerous participants worldwide. Canadians, Americans from the Lower 48, and even Europeans have made the trip to Tok to participate in this epic event. Up to date, maybe the most famous Trekker of all has been Sarah Palin who, with her husband Todd, made the Trek in 2004.

Trek over the Top has become an annual tourist attraction for Dawson City, YT and receives the support of all the community and its businesses. With the help of the Dawson City Sled Dawgs, the Klondike Visitors Association, and the Alaska Trail Blazers, this event continues to be a success and remains to this day, the most northern international poker run in North America.
