The Sluice Box 100 – a new endurance race in Fairbanks, Alaska. You’ve heard of the midnight sun, blood-thirsty mosquitoes, and gold-rich terrain that define Interior Alaska. Here’s your opportunity to test yourself against these challenges of the last frontier along with 12,000-foot elevation gain, swamp crossings, and crusty sourdoughs with guns during the inaugural Sluice Box 100-mile adventure race in Fairbanks, Alaska.
Bike or run across four of Fairbanks’ sun-drenched domes, dropping to the valley floor between each one to swim in Goldstream Creek and check in at our vintage watering holes. Leave the headlamp at home, but bring your headnet!
