Join us in the land of the midnight sun for AKtive Soles Backyard Ultra. Race will be held at Government Peak Rec Area, the backyard of Alaska’s favorite outdoor playground, Hatcher Pass. Course will be a 4.167 mile loop through single track trails and grass ski paths with moderate elevation gains/losses (300-400ft per loop). Race will follow all standard Backyard Ultra rules and regulations. Come see just how many loops Alaska will give you! Course trails will be clear but there can be thick vegetation surrounding the trails, always keep an eye out for wildlife. Weather in Alaska is anybody’s guess. Hope for dry, runnable trails but be prepared for rain and mud as well. Thanks to our extra hours of light, day and night loops are the same but we still recommend headlamps for the hours of 12-4am.

Registration will open Sunday, October 29, 2023 at 8:00AM.
