The RAAWC is a multi-sport, multi-distance winter challenge with the goal to log as many miles as you can over 3 months starting the first day of winter, December 21st and ending March 20th.
You can Walk, Run, Fat Tire Bike, Indoor Bike, XC Ski or Swim across Alaska with your choice of 6 different routes of varying distances depending on your goals!
You will have the ability to log your miles, track your progress, collect virtual badges, and see how you rank up to others on the leader board daily. Invite your friends for a discount and to challenge you to stay motivated all Winter long!
RAAWC is a fundraiser for the Alaska Trails, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with the vision of Alaska connected by sustainable trails and the development of The Alaska Long Trail. 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 we were able to raise nearly $20,000 through your participation and donations!
The official race cannon will be fired at the Zoom Kickoff Party on December 21st at 4:30pm AKS (8:30pm EST). Join our facebook group to hear about pop-up Zoom and/or Zwift FREE workouts along with facebook live videos!
