The 2016 Alaska Mountain Wilderness Classic just finished a few days ago. The course this year ran from Galbraith Lake to Wiseman and looks to be have had all the benefits of being in the Brooks Range. Open tundra, snowfields, great packrafting and unbeatable views.
22 people started the race, 9 were rookies and about half of the starters had finished a prior Classic.
Luc Mehl and Todd Tumolo finished first in 34 hours.
Other participants included:
Morgan Lizabeth Bender
