The 2019 ITI is a Wrap

The 2019 ITI is a wrap with Grant Maughn and Klaus Schweinberger concluding their ITI 1000 journeys in Nome. Grant finished in 33 days, 7 hours and 9 minutes and Klaus in 34 days, 12 hours and 1 minute.

The two did not make the 30 day cut off, but that does not diminish the feat they accomplished, covering 1,000 miles on foot across the Alaskan wilderness in rain, winds, soft snow conditions and low visibility for the final several hundred miles of their journey. They demonstrated remarkable grit in persevering in the face of enormous obstacles and embodied the resilient spirit of the ITI community.
