Expedition Alaska is a 350+ mile, 7 days “Human Powered” multi-sport adventure race through the stunning scenery of the mountains, oceans, glaciers, lakes and wilds of Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula, often called “Alaska’s Playground!”
It features what many say is the finest finish line experience in the world, as well as many more extras that are above and beyond what one would find or expect in other races. Racers have said that Expedition Idaho (and now Alaska) are “the best run, best supported races ever in North America,” and we will continue this into the future… it is our goal to see that EVERY team in the race will make it to the finish on time! Yes, it will challenge the best in the world to their limits, but it will be an achievable adventure for all of those lucky enough to partake!
The race will include trekking, ocean, flat and moving water kayaking, whitewater rafting, packrafting, mountain biking, canyoneering, coasteering, ropes work and more as the athletes navigate by map and compass over some of the world’s most remote, famous and beautiful terrain.
One of the goals in our races is to connect with the regional history of the area, and for the 2015 edition, we are going to pay homage to the “original” IDITAROD TRAIL, and celebrate the spirit and history of the men and women who used it to create a lifeline to so many.
We are also very passionate about protecting and preserving the environment, and celebrate the “Leave No Trace” ethic – this is one of the ultimate opportunities to pass through and be a part of one of earth’s greatest treasures!
