This race is amazing in so many ways. Sixteen miles point to point in Alaskan backcountry, single track trails with gorgeous, wild backdrops. More so, however, it raises money for children with cystic fibrosis. When racing this is the past, I was extremely moved by the mileage markers. Each mile has an 8x11 photo of a child the money will help, and the ages correspond to the miles (there’s a picture of a two year old at mile two, a five year old at mile five, etc.). Lastly, in my own person fight against addiction, I get the privlege to run this race with my fellow sober sisters. I hope you are able to contribute to this, but if not, that’s totally okay too. Thank you for your consideration.
