I realize there are not many of my fellow Alaskans frequent this site currently, though I hope to see that change as the popularity increases for these types of challenges. Regardless, the first of two challenges that I plan to take on in the near future will be breaking the current time record for the Denali Park Highway. The current time is set at 25 hours 20 minutes and belongs to Bill VonderMehden. To my knowledge this remains as the only registered time on the highway. Support will come in the form of a friend biking along side me carrying water and a small amount of food for the trip. I will start out in Kantishna and head towards the park entrance where the road meets the Parks Highway. I think that covers just about everything, for more information regarding the current record here is an article written in the Anchorage Daily News, www.adn.com/2011/07/31/1994515/runner-conquers-92-miles-of-denali.html

I will be doing a Denali National Park Road Double Crossing of 184 miles in late July 2014. Already coordinated with Park officials and looking for others to join in. I will be runnin it for a charity but plan on going for speed. I would like to end the run at 200 miles but the FKT will be at 184 miles. I will post more specific locations and details within the next month.
