The Race to Alaska Podcast Graphic

Once again, we have failed to convince anybody that racing to Alaska is a miserable, cold, and potentially marriage-ending way to spend several weeks in June. We keep trying, and we keep failing. In fact—the pool of hopeful racers putting in their bid to be amongst the 2024 cohort continues to grow—and we decided that we need to hear from them exactly how they told their nine-year-old why daddy won’t be home to celebrate Flag Day with them.

And so, we present another distraction from your real-world responsibilities: The Race to Alaska Podcast. Each week (don’t hold us to that schedule) we’ll introduce you to another batch of future-tracker-icons so that perhaps we can all judge their life choices more effectively.
