Length: 5 Days

IT'S BACK!

Expedition Alaska was created by the adventurous mastermind of David Adlard in 2015 because of his love for the "last true wilderness" of Alaska. The state is renowned for its breathtaking landscapes, diverse ecosystems, and rugged terrain, making it an ideal setting for an exciting and challenging expedition race. David designed and directed Expedition Alaska, which has gone down in adventure racing history as the most talked about race anyone has ever completed. Warrior Adventure Racing is bringing back this biannual event in 2024. Due to the remote wilderness, this event is only available to 4-person teams (coed or open). This Bi-annual event is limited to only 50 teams, and registration opens on July 24th, 9:00am. Warrior includes all the support required for teams to complete this fantastic course, so don't miss the 2024 event, or your team will have to wait until 2026 when it returns again.
