The Race to Alaska: 750 miles. Icy water. No motors. No support. A chance of drowning or being eaten by a Grizzly bear. This epic endurance race attracts the intrepid and unhinged who find their edge along a coastline that is as punishing as it is beautiful.

The Race to Alaska depicts experience of racers as they compete in one of the most difficult endurance challenges in the world.

Described as “the Iditarod, on a boat, with a chance of drowning or being eaten by a grizzly bear." There are no motors and no support and nobody finishes without a story. Its an adrenaline-fueled, 750-mile boat race through the dangerous and spectacular wilderness of the inside passage to Alaska.

Through vast aerials, in depth interviews, and raw racer-shot footage, The Race to Alaska tells the story of the race's improbable inception, and the journey of the men and women who answered the call to action.
