Long distance relays

On the next Outdoor Explorer, we’re talking about a different kind of race, one where you have as much support and camaraderie as you do competition. Long distance road relays have been around for a while, including the Klondike Road Relay that follows the gold rush route of 1898 every fall, with teams of runners who ride along in vans while taking turns on foot. A new one is getting started in Anchorage this summer, from Eagle River to Seward and we’re looking forward to hearing about it. 



HOST: Charles Wohlforth


  • Nathan Luke, organizer of Alaska Relay
  • Sandra Soares, coordinator of the Klondike Relay
