The Iditasport® 100K is a supported race. There are trail markers on the race course, snowmachine support, & tented portable toilets. We have propane-heated tent camps (Ten Mile Island tent camp & Scary Tree tent camp is 17 miles from the race start and again at 48 miles on your return trip). Our tent camps are Arctic Ovens— a rest area and water is provided.
Race start: EagleQuest Lodge, Ten Mile Island Tent Camp (10 miles from race start), Scary Tree tent camp (17 miles from start), Yetna Station (32 miles from race start). Then back to Scary Tree tent camp (47 miles from race start, Ten Mile Island (54 miles from start), and finish at EagleQuest Lodge (total 64 miles).
SPOT locators are not required.
You can race this 100K in under 12 hours or adventure it and rest at the tent camps and have an overnight at the historic –Yentna Station where the walls are covered with the original Iditaski, Iditabike and Iditasport® memorabilia. Hot food, cold beer and lodging is available!
Getting to the Race Start: Most racers rent a car to get out to the race start since there is not any public transportation that drive to Willow. Parking is $10 a day at Deshka Landing. There is a cab company that charges a flat fee for a ride back and it is better to split this fee with another returning racer if you can.
Cut-Off Time: Total time allowed for completion of the Iditasport 100K is 48 hours.
Besides the obvious–headlamps & rear flashing lights, no gear is required–but we do recommend you prepare for an overnight (sleeping gear etc.) in case the weather gets bad or if you plan on completing the race in over 13 hours. The tent camps do NOT have any bedding/cots at all.
