Race to Alaska Podcast

Published on February 22nd, 2024

The Race to Alaska will hold its 8th edition in 2024, continuing with its 750-mile course from Port Townsend, WA to Ketchikan, AK. And now there is a podcast series prior to the June 9 start. This episode questions how two of the entrants could be in the same race. Meet the soloist of Team SKOFTIG as they chat with Jake and the quad-ists Team Juvenile Delinquents who caught up with the Race Boss.

This team is either amazing, or just a dirty trick. Find out which as you listen to R2AK Lead Instigator Jake chat with Derek Desaunois of Team SKOFTIG. Derek tells us about getting rescued somewhere off the Australian coast and makes a handshake agreement with Jake that could lead to considerable discomfort come race time.

Team Juvenile Delinquents
Race to Alaska has existed for the majority of the lives of the members of this team, and that gives them an edge. What edge? Who knows. The Race Boss was curious about what sets this team – Dagny Kruger, Else Ranker, Bryce Lutz, and Willow Gray – apart from other high schoolers still content racing around plastic buoys.
