We're all living through strange times now; social distancing, staying safe. Well, get ready to leave your safe place behind! Five years in the making, The Race to Alaska chronicles an annual adrenaline-fueled, 750-mile boat race from Port Townsend, Washington, through the dangerous and spectacular wilderness of the Inside Passage, all the way to Ketchikan, Alaska. Described as “the Iditarod, on a boat, with a chance of drowning or being eaten by a grizzly bear,” this race attracts the intrepid and the unhinged. Meet the dauntless men and women competing for the $10,000 first prize — with no support teams, no rest stops, and practically no rules, except, of course, for that small detail about no motors allowed. Riptides, dolphins, storms, rain, snow, hunger, cold, exhaustion, bears; those are the things you can expect. And then, the race happens: no motors and no support, and nobody finishes without a story.
