The Race to Alaska is  a documentary following the visceral experience of racers as they compete in one of the most difficult endurance challenges in the world.

It’s an adrenaline-fuelled, 750-mile boat race through the dangerous and spectacular wilderness of the Inside Passage to Alaska.

Through vast aerials, in depth interviews, and raw racer-shot footage, The Race to Alaska tells the story of the race’s improbable inception, and the journey of the men and women who answered the call to action. These unlikely heroes challenge themselves to find their edge on an epic engineless charge through the inside passage to Alaska, one of the most complex and beautiful race courses on the planet.
