Reach For The Stars
The Booneville Backroads Ultra is beautiful, punishing, exhausting, revealing, easy to quit...
Anything but flat.
There are official finish lines in this race - 50K, 100K, 100-Mile. But, somewhere between those there are personal finish lines that are just as important. And that’s why this race exists. To provide an opportunity to go as far as you can go.
The number one goal, be that in this race or in life is: Did you do all you could do?
Experience the miles through the eyes and hearts of those reaching for the stars...giving everything they’ve got as they attempt to answer 'YES I DID' to that question.
1000 Miles to Nome
Of grueling and unforgiving terrain.
Of wolf and bear tracks reminding you that you are not the king in this place.
Of unimaginable and humbling beauty.
Of unpredictable weather that tests even the most seasoned adventurer.
Of isolation and self reflection.
Of constantly fighting, reaching, crossing, and expanding both mental and physical limits.
1000 Miles...to Nome.
