Come find yourself in the race that started all other winter Super Ultras: The Iditasport®–Alaskans that will guide you into the wild! The Iditasport® race course/Iditarod trail has been used for millennia by Alaska’s first peoples as a main trade and migration route. During the turn of the century, people from all walks of life came to Alaska to find fame and fortune in search of gold! The Iditarod trail was named after the last gold strike that pushed the migration of explorers to Alaska and these centuries old traditions are still alive and thriving!
2019 RACE START: MONDAY, FEBRUARY 18TH AT 12PM
EAGLEQUEST LODGE–WILLOW, ALASKA
- Iditasport® 100K (64 miles)Yentna Station Lodge & back
- Iditasport® Classic (approximately 170 miles) We strive to mark the overland trail for our race but the mileage is trail condition dependent.
100K racers have tent camps and a lodge about 20 miles apart with snowmachine support and a marked trail. The Classic event pushes competitors distances of about 35 miles between lodges with snowmachine support and a marked trail.
Participants need to be prepared for below freezing temperatures–temperatures can drop to -50 Fahrenheit (-45 Celsius). High winds, new snowfall, wind drifted trails and overflow. Our race course is not on the road system and is only accessible by snowmachine & airplane.
We are a 100% Alaskan operated nonprofit with 100% volunteers. All race expenses are paid out of entry fees. Our Sponsors and Board Members help offset any additional costs.
The Iditasport® Classic finishers will earn the coveted Iditasport® Ulu trophy!
