Description

NSAA is offering a virtual ski option for the Tour of Anchorage!  

We hope it appeals to those who are uncomfortable racing during the pandemic or unable to gain entry into the ski race that has reached capacity.

The Details

Pick your route:

  1. Follow the map for a 25K Tour within Kincaid park (follow along on phone or print hard copy). This can be modified to include any (or all) of the three laps shown. This route will NOT be marked.
  2. Complete the TOA 25K course from APU to the Kincaid stadium (see maps at www.tourofanchorage.com)
  3. Pick your own route of 25K.

This is designed to be a fun event and it's fine if the official route is not followed exactly. It is not a competitive event and the distance covered and time spent skiing should not be submitted to NSAA.

NSAA will publish a list of virtual participants alongside the other 2021 TOA results.

The cost is $30 and includes a 2021 Tour of Anchorage t-shirt and Print-At-Home bib. 

Virtual participants can ski the Kincaid 25K Tour or other routes from March 8 to March 14, 2021. Please do not ski the virtual Tour on March 7, 2021 - this race day is reserved for real time registrants only.
