Finning Canada recently had the honour of sponsoring The Klondike Road Relay in Whitehorse, YT. This amazing event covered a total of 175 km, from Skagway, through B.C., to the finish line in Whitehorse. Our top priority was safety, and we were happy to be able to supply the night runners with LED safety vests.
Executive Director of Sport Yukon, Tracey Bilsky, commented on the lights saying, “One of the most important things for us to do was increase the safety for the runners…(and) that’s where the Finning Canada safety vests came in. And the best thing about those vests is they light up on the front and the back. So oncoming traffic and traffic coming from behind can see them…It’s a game changer for us.”
We want to thank all organizers, participants, and Indigenous leaders for welcoming us into their community and letting us be a part of this great Yukon tradition.
