Chena River to Ridge

March 4, 2023

55 Mile and 26 Mile Multi-sport Endurance Race

 

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.
