20th Anniversary Event Iditasport Extreme:
February 19, 2017 (2pm)
In 1997 the Iditasport race took a big leap, from a 200 mile event to a 350 mile human powered event! This went from the old town site of Knik which is about 60 miles north of Anchorage to 350 miles up the Iditarod trail to the village of McGrath. Not only was the mileage a lot to handle, the racer had to cross over the Alaska Range! 2017 is the 20th Anniversary of this event that changed the way we think about adventuring. This non-supported race is set up for the veteran winter adventurer, those how have already proved that they have the skills and the respect of Alaska’s extremely unforgiving environment. If you question your outdoor winter skills–this event is not for you.
