Summary: I just don’t do trail. I really, really struggle with the uneven surface. A good 10 miles of this race was rock, dirt and hard-core TRAIL. Like, “only one person in line on the path” trail. It was an adventure to get to Alaska. I didn’t see any wildlife on the course. It was a nicely organized race. The sun never goes down in Alaska during the summer! Race day was also summer solstice. It was cool for the first day with all the day light, but it then got hard to sleep.
