Tour registration will close Sunday, Feb 26th at 10pm.
The Tour of Anchorage is one of the few point-to-point cross-country ski marathons in North America and may be the only one that crosses through an urban environment! There are 3 ski distance of 25, 40 and 50 kilometers available in both Freestyle and Classic techniques. We also welcome Fatbike racers and will host a 50 and 25 kilometer race on the same course. In each race, participants range from competitive elite athletes to recreational skiers just challenging themselves to get to the finish line.
The 40k and 50k start on the Anchorage Hillside and traverse the city along ski and multi-use trails. Tunnels, bridges and greenbelts make it possible to ski from one side of town to the other without crossing a single road. The 25k races start in midtown (Alaska Pacific University) and tie into the 50 and 40k courses. All races finish at the ski stadium of Kincaid Park on the western edge of the city overlooking Cook Inlet.
Join us March 6th for an awards ceremony & banquet for participants in the 2023 Tour of Anchorage. Racers from all backgrounds are welcome to celebrate victories for overall event winners, as well as winners at the age group level. Enjoy gourmet Bear Tooth Pizza and recover those lost racing calories while enjoying a slideshow of race-day highlights. Tickets include pizza, salad and soda!
