The Virtual Race Across Alaska is coming back to AWCC as a featured “badge” stop!

Racers who visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center and show their bib upon arrival at the ticket booth get a special admissions rate of $11. Non-bib guests who are accompanying the bib-wearing racer will pay regular price. Offer valid December 21, 2021 – March 20, 2022.

The Race Across Alaska Winter Challenge is a multi-sport challenge! You can Run, Walk, Fat Tire Bike, Indoor Bike, XC Ski or swim….. 125 miles, 225 miles, 350 miles, 500 miles, 850 miles, or 2000 miles. The goal is to log as many miles as you can over the 3 months of Winter, doing any of the 6 sports to get from location A to B!

  • 125 miles = Anchorage to Seward, AK, that’s 1.4 miles/day (AWCC Badge Mile 46)
  • 225 miles = Anchorage to Homer, AK, that’s 2.5 miles/day (AWCC Badge Mile 46)
  • 500 miles = Alaska Long Trail, Seward to Fairbanks (5.4 miles/day) (AWCC Badge Mile 46)

Racers will have the ability to log miles, track progress, collect virtual badges, so how you rank up to others on the leader board daily! Invite other to this challenge to help you to stay motivated all Winter long!

The Challenge will start on December 21st, the first day of Winter and continue through March 20th.

The Challenge is a fundraiser for the Alaska Trails development of The Alaska Long Trail too! For every racer that participates, $10 will be donated to Alaska Trails PLUS racers can donate additional funds to support the development of The Alaska Long Trail. Last year VRAA was able to raise nearly $20,000 through participation and donations!
