Seventy miles, 48 hours. Tacoma to Port Townsend.
June 10-12, 2022
Rules are simple: no motors, no support, and no wind. That’s right. HUMAN POWER ONLY. Pedal, paddle, or row. We don’t care. It’s up to you. (And this is a boat race. Leave your 10 speed-towing-a-canoe idea at home.)
Created by the same lunatics that brought you Race to Alaska, this is a chance to see Puget Sound like never before—in extreme pain, in the dark, and with a long way to go.
It’s easy to try hard when no one is watching, but can you make 70 miles moving past the most populated cities in Washington? It’s a front country race, so the challenge isn’t about fighting whirlpools and running from bears. What you’re up against is yourself.
Many different types of craft have finished near the top, but it’s clear that success in this race is best judged by the racer.
