The ITI 130 is the gateway to the Iditarod Trail and is designed for those adventurers who want to experience what the Alaskan wilderness has to offer. 


A genuine Iditarod Trail experience

This is no walk in the park. The ITI 130 is a true test of fortitude in the Alaskan wilderness. Participants travel the first 130 miles of the ITI route on bicycle, foot or skis, facing the same challenges as all other ITI competitors.  


the adventure continues

After crossing the finish line, you'll be celebrated with a warm embrace and a hot meal surrounded by rugged mountains at the remote Winterlake Lodge. Finally, enjoy a bird's eye view of your accomplishment and the Iditarod Trail's scenic highlights on your flight back to Anchorage on an Alaskan bush plane. Finishing the ITI 130 serves one of the three required qualifying events for the ITI 350.



Participants must have completed at least one winter ultra race of 100 miles or more or have had significant cold weather experience. The ITI 130 serves as the first step for competitors on a quest to participate in the ITI 350 or for adventurers craving a self-supported expedition along the historic Iditarod Trail.
