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.
The American Master’s Ski Association is partnering with NSAA to host their national championship race in conjunction with the Tour of Anchorage. The 10km classic course will run along the bluffs of the Mize Loop, and the evening setting is virtually guaranteed to provide astounding views of the Cook Inlet sunset.
