Race Directors: Alaskan Ultra Community

Year Established: 1996

Other Race Distances: 50 mi.

Fun Fact: “This race is a work of love from the Alaskan ultra community.  No board of directors, no entry fees, and a participant driven atmosphere.  The race has kept growing and is now in the 23rd year. Due to course inaccessibility, the race is almost entirely self supported with only two official drop-bag checkpoints for the 100 mile run.   The trail is popular and well marked  but 50 or 100 miles through Alaska is not to be taken lightly.  Runners are strongly encouraged to have previous ultra race experience, basic survival skills, and to adopt some kinship and care of each other out on the trail.”

Nearest Airports (HRs): Anchorage, AK (1.75)
