RootsRated: The Brutal Arrowhead Ultra 135

Early on Monday, January 27th, 2014, competitors will cross the starting line of the 10th annual Arrowhead Ultra 135 in International Falls, Minnesota. The Arrowhead, featured in the book,” World’s 50 Toughest Endurance Challenges,” will challenge riders with bitter cold temperatures and hours of solitude.

The field, limited to 150 competitors, is divided into three classes: on foot, on ski or on a bike. In the first 9 years of the annual event the overall finishing rate is just 50 percent. “The high DNF rate doesn’t deter people from coming back. They want to cross that finish line,” says Ken Krueger, race director, Arrowhead Ultra 135.

Yes, I do.
