THE RACES

Our race course follows the Iditarod Trail along the Susitna and Yentna Rivers. Used for millennia by Alaska’s first peoples as a main trade and migration route, the Iditarod Trail provides an epic Alaskan adventure you won’t soon forget. Register today & challenge yourself on the same trail used during the turn of the century to ferry people from all walks of life in search of gold. Races start Saturday, January 18, 2020.

Getting there: The race start is about 2 hours from Anchorage. No transportation is provided to or from the race start. Racers drive/carpool or rent a vehicle. Parking is $10 per day at Deshka Landing.

 
 
 
 

History

Welcome to Alaska’s historic human-powered adventure ultra! Our ski, bike & run event Is the original winter adventure race. The roots of Iditasport® are directly connected to the Father of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race, Joe Redington Sr. In 1983, wanting to bring human-powered racing to the Iditarod Trail, Joe organized an invitational race and called it the Iditaski. Soon after, he challenged the running community to attempt the course, and in 1986 bicycles were added to the fold, aptly named the Iditashoe and Iditabike.

In 1991 the Iditaski, Iditashoe & Iditabike were brought together to form the Holy Grail of all human-powered adventure ultras. Coined by legendary Iditaskier, Tim Kelley, the Iditasport® race was born! Our Classic race still follows the same historic route used by the pioneers of winter adventure racing.
