AKtive's Backyard Ultra

What’s the best of part about doing a summer Backyard Ultra in Alaska? No headlamps needed! Join us in the land of the midnight sun for AKtive Soles inaugural 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 and ski trails with moderate elevation gains/losses. Race will follow all standard Backyard Ultra rules and regulations including being an open race. Complete as many loops as you can to be the official finisher and try to earn your at-large spot at Big's Backyard in Tennessee in 2023. 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. No water crossings but there are several foot bridges.
