If you want to brush up on the @Kobuk440 before @QuinceMountain starts it with our dogs tomorrow (!), here’s a thread about my experience in it last year. I had a blast and I can’t wait to follow the team’s next adventure.
The race crosses sea ice, river, tundra, and some gently-sloping foothills as it passes between arctic villages. The terrain is gentle, but challenges can come from storms, heat, and long distances between checkpoints—and this year, extensive overflow. A phone map of Alaska showing Kotzebue as 2/3 of the way up the western coast. The next image is a map of the race, which makes a narrow loop into the interior that reverses direction on alternate years.
This will be @QuinceMountain’s longest race yet and he’s running it as an Iditarod qualifier. He’s planning on running conservatively—but he’ll have to make a few strategic pushes to avoid getting stuck in the heat of the day.
