    The Alaska Endurance Trail Run is held on the wide, unpaved cross country ski trails adjacent to the University of Alaska Campus. The trails are varied: mostly dirt, some of which is covered with wood chips, as well as grassy fields with wet spots. In fact, there are quite a few soggy places which makes keeping one’s feet dry almost impossible. The only wildlife that I saw on the trail were red squirrels, although I did see some moose sign. It was interesting to run through the night when the sun did drop below the horizon for a couple of hours, but it never really got dark. In fact, I didn’t need a headlamp at any time. There were no finisher medals, but running in Alaska is enough reward in itself.

    This was a small ultramarathon, probably because of the long distance that most ultrarunners from the lower 48 states have to travel, but it was definitely worth the effort. Except for a lot of wet ground, the course was relatively easy with just a couple of noticeable climbs. The race director was very humble and gracious, and everything went off with a hitch. There were no finisher awards given, but the scenery and location more than made up for it. There was a lunch served after the race with hot dogs and hamburgers, and runners were encouraged to bring a potluck dish which fostered a sense of community. As expected, most of the runners were from Alaska, and were very warm and friendly. It wasn’t so much the course, but the people that would bring me back again if I have the chance.
