"I signed up for the Yukon Arctic Ultra with very little extreme cold weather skills or experience. There was so much I needed to learn about that extreme environment, how my body would respond & how to use my gear (getting in/out of a sleeping bag or lighting a stove at -40 degrees is NOT the same as at home!) I also wanted a few days out in the cold to acclimatise, to get used to the conditions I’d be racing in & get into the right headspace.
Stew’s Survival Training Course gave me all of this. It helped me answer all the questions I had and, most importantly, helped me get answers to the questions I didn’t even think to ask!
Stew and the team running the course have so much knowledge to share - it’s certainly worth spending a few days with them before starting the MYAU race." Jethro De Decker - winner of MYAU 2018.
