Changes in 2021!
**This year we will NOT be hosting a skijor race. There will be a skijor race hosted by the Alaska Skijor and Pulk Association (ASPA) on the same date and course. We will update our website and Facebook as we get more information**
**There are also changes to the race setup due to the continuing COVID-19 outbreak. Please read the race waiver, or find the updated rules on our website to read about these changes. https://tananariverchallenge.org/race-info/covid-protocols/**
The Tanana River Challenge (TRC) is an endurance race which includes runners, skiers, skijorers, and bikers. The race course loops around the mighty Tanana River and Rosie Creek forest; a distance of roughly 45 miles. Racers will enjoy the spring sunshine, the frozen river and the beautiful landscape that is interior Alaska!
Local time: 5:46 AM
We welcome runners to join the fun, and offer a 25 mile course for all classes. With the later date, we anticipate warmer weather and firmer, faster trail conditions.
This event is a re-incarnation of the much-loved Equinox Ultra-Ski 100k Challenge which went from Nenana to Fairbanks and run for many years by Audun and Sally Endestad of Fairbanks. We’ve updated it to include more modes of travel, multiple aid stations run by our great volunteers, and have embraced new course routes.
