The Iditasport® 100K is a supported race (trailmarkers, snowmachine support, & heated checkpoints) . Your entry fee provides you with: snowmachined course & marked trail, trailbreaking crew, airplane crew, tented portable toilets. We have a propane-heated tent camp (Scary Tree 15 miles from the race start). Our tent camps are Arctic Ovens–super deluxe survival tents and all are propane heated so they will be super warm when you arrive! At the tent camps you will have a resting area and drinking water.
Racers will head to Yetna Station (32 miles) and back to Deshka. SPOT locators are not required.
RACE STARTS ON PRESIDENT’S DAY! PRESIDENTIAL COSTUMES ARE ENCOURAGED!
Cut-Off Time: Total time allowed for completion of the Iditasport 100K is 30 hours.
Besides the obvious–headlamps & rear flashing lights, no gear is required–but we do recommend you prepare for an overnight if the weather gets bad or if you plan on staying at a check point to sleep.
