Choose your time and distance!
Welcome! This is a unique race for the Valley. In a nutshell... this event is held for 12 hours a day for 3 consecutive days (November 29th and 30th and December 1st) from 8 am to 8 pm each day. You have the option to register for 1, 2, or 3 days. The distance and time goal is totally up to you! You do NOT have to complete a full 12 hours per day...however long you want to be out there for up to 12 hours. For registration purposes: 12 hour is the 1 day event, 24 hours is the 2 day event, and 36 hours is all 3 days.
Local time: 2:50 AM
Each loop on this course is approximately 3ish miles. Some people will be content with a 5k, others will push for a total of 36 hours over those 3 days and earn an ultra-ultra. We will tally the total miles for each runner over the whole weekend to determine final placing.
This race is about more than just distance. It's mostly about taking a step back from our frantic lives, refocusing, and getting out and enjoying yourself while having a bit of a challenge.
All the details can be found on our website (link above) and all your questions will be answered! We certainly hope to see you for a fun-filled weekend in the snow.
We will be also be providing updates on Facebook at Happy Malamute Running.
