Arrowhead 135 – Ultra Race

This year’s Arrowhead 135 Ultra is shaping up to be just that, Ultra. The distance alone is an impressive feat to accomplish, but paired with the race location, the cold from northern latitudes easily creeps south and envelopes this area of Minnesota.

With temperatures getting to the point where you forget what country you’re in (-40º is the same in Celsius and Fahrenheit. Nerdy, but science prevails), being prepared is essential to not only finishing the event, but literally surviving the event. New employee, Ben Skoning, is tackling this monster. We invite you to follow his progress here. Send him some good vibes as he takes on this challenge on social media or send over an email:
