ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Leah Gruhn joins Andrea to discuss her recent successful first attempt at the Iditarod Trail Invitational. Leah breaks down her 350-mile fatbike trek from Knik Lake to McGrath, Alaska. It’s a great listen because Leah’s passion and excitement for the ITI and riding in general definitely comes through. Leah had a busy 2015-16 winter as she completed the Tuscobia Ultra, the Arrowhead 135, the Actif Epica, and the Iditarod Trail Invitational.

The Iditarod Trail Invitational is the world’s longest winter ultra marathon by fat bike, foot and ski, and follows the historic Iditarod Trail from Knik, Alaska over the Alaska Range to McGrath (350-mile) and to Nome (1000-mile) in late February every year one week before the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. The shorter 350-mile race finishes in the interior village of McGrath on the Kuskokwim River and the 1000-mile race finishes in Nome.

RELATED SHOW NOTES:

ABOUT LEAH (from the Salsa Cycles website): “Leah Gruhn grew up in Rhode Island and developed a love of wilderness adventure in the far north as a teenager on summer canoe trips in northern Minnesota and the Canadian Arctic. After moving to Duluth, Minnesota, she became an avid cross-country skier and winter camper, and later competed in northern Minnesota’s Arrowhead 135 on cross-country skis. The following year, Leah raced the Arrowhead on fatbike and quickly got hooked on long fatbike races. In total she has competed in six Arrowhead 135s, the ITI, Tuscobia Ultra, and Actif Epica.”
