55 Mile and 26 Mile Multi-sport Endurance Race

in Interior Alaska’s Chena Recreation Area

We invite you to venture north to Fairbanks to participate in this unique multi-sport endurance race in interior Alaska. The Chena River to Ridge race will take racers around maintained snow-machine trails in the Chena River Recreation Area about 30 miles east of Fairbanks. Its a challenging race course with big ascents, fast downhills, blind turns, and outstanding views of the local hills and the Alaska Range as the trail climbs high above the valley floor. Racers can either travel by ski, bike, or on foot. There is a 55-mile course and a 26-mile course. After the race, you can relax your muscles in the thermal waters at Chena Hot Springs Resort, about 30 minutes away.

😂 I love how the jacket is folded neatly, but the socks are like ‘dude, I am not sticking my hand down inside that thing to straighten it out!’

The water bottle with maroon coozy is mine. Popped out somewhere on the Stiles downhill.

I see my water bottle was retrieved. It is the one in the honey stinger koozie.

Already left my water bottle behind.. hahaha

The Arcteryx vest is mine! Thanks!!

The B shirt is mine that I loaned to my son, Liam Palmer for the race... Last year's bottle is his, as well. Sheesh...

My socks!!!
