Biographical Information

In teenage years I came to canoe racing. From this point on I am connected to water sports. Since 2012 I joined the dragon boat team "Hai Voltage". Here we are training weekly for the sports competitions. Even my holiday I spend active, hiking in New Zealand, cycling in Cuba, making husky tours in Scandinavia or canoeing in Norway.

Aims for this race

For me it will be a new sporting challenge. Because this is my first race of the river "Yukon" and we want paddling a good time, which is better then that of 2017. That was paddled by our team in the Voyageur Class.

Reasons for entering this race

Dragon boat colleagues who finished the "YRQ" 2017 have raved about it and convinced me to take part. So we want to tackle the adventure in 2022 together. And for me it is the first time I fly to Canada, it is supposed be a very beautiful country.

Biographical Information

Date: November 2021


To Whom It Concerns:

By way of introduction, my name is Reed Langridge and I am an Australian endurance athlete based in New York City.

On researching my next endurance challenge, I discovered the Yukon River Quest and was struck by the unique beauty of the course and challenge. I am excited to compete in this epic and world-class paddling event in the Yukon.

Please find below a list of challenges I have completed that include a demanding combination of endurance, navigation and survival skills. Between events, I consistently maintain competition-level fitness.

Bryce Canyon Ultra Marathon Finisher 50 mile (2021)
Antelope Canyon Ultra Marathon Finisher 50 mile (2020)
Brooklyn Marathon finisher, USA (2019)
Zion Ultra Marathon Finisher 100K (2019)
Saranac Lake Ultra 6er, USA (2018)
Summited Mount Blanc, France 15,777 ft (2018)
Summited Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania 19,340 ft (2017)
Summited Mount Kinabalu, Malaysia 13,435 ft (2016)
Annapurna Trail, Nepal (2015)

In addition to competing in endurance sports, I also coach youth boxing for underprivileged kids. Through the Yukon River Quest I will be raising much needed money for the program.

If you have any questions or would like to share more, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Thanks for running such an awesome and inspiring event and hope to see you next year!

Best,

A few YRQ's (including 2x C1) and local races. 33+ years of northern wilderness experience, much of it solo by ski, horseback, dogteam, canoe, foot. Known to drag the odd kid (ages 28, 26, and 9) along as required for their health and mine Have been involved with the race as a coordinator for a decade.

Aims for this race

Always be in the moment.
Don't hate the river, the race, people, logs that look like people, people who look like logs. Use the F word less.
Properly use my GoPro.

Reasons for entering this race

Having the race cancelled two years in a row, especially last minute in 2021 was tough. In memorial of that race (and prepped for a 20+ hour paddle anyways), a solo circumnavigation of Lake Laberge on race day in the most non-stop worst conditions I've ever experienced out there was completed instead. There really is no greater reason for entering other than to indulge mother nature head on.
Fingers and toes crossed for the 2022 race to start. I'm not getting any younger :-)
Life is too short.
Second, because I still can.....
Third, adventures are good for the soul.
And finally, something that your kids can actually think you're kind of cool for doing!
