US / 75 min. / Sports Documentary
Directed by Brian J. Lenten
Produced by students at the University of Cincinnati, twenty teams brave the Alaskan wilderness for the competition of a lifetime. Racers will traverse over 350 miles in a non-stop seven-day race, carrying everything they will need to survive a course that pits themselves against Mother Nature and each other. Racers will mountain bike through the sharp peaks of the Kenai Peninsula, traverse mountain ranges, crevasse filled glaciers, mudflats filled with quicksand and paddle countless life-threatening rivers and rapids. The crushing tundra, freezing water and constant sunlight of the Alaskan summer will force racers to confront their physical and mental limits.
