The Iditarod Trail Invitational is the world's longest winter ultra-marathon.

As of Monday, March 4th at 10:30 am, Steve was 362.5 miles at 2.1 mph into his 1000 miles to Nome race. He is averaging 50 miles per day. Only 637.5 miles to go. You do the math!

Only the most experienced, rugged and intrepid competitors dare to attempt the ITI 1000, the world's longest and toughest winter race.

Last year, Steve finished the ITI 350 and has upped his game to the ITI 1000 this year!

Steve is riding for those who are fighting cancer and those who have lost the battle (more info). "For friends, for family, for Iowa, and for cancer fighters everywhere. This ride is for a lot of reasons, and I carry each and every one of them with me out on the trail."

Watch Steve on the ITI Live Tracker!

One of the most challenging experiences on the planet, participants brave extreme physical, environmental and mental challenges as they work their way along the historic Iditarod Trail on bicycle, foot or skis.Requiring self-sufficiency and the considerable resilience to make it through up to 30 frozen days and nights, the Iditarod Trail Invitational has built its reputation on notoriously inhospitable conditions and minimal outside support.

With jagged mountain ranges, bone-numbing temperatures and minimal support, the ITI 350 forces competitors to reach deep within themselves to persist while being besieged by relentless physical and mental challenges.

The ITI follows the historic Iditarod Trail from its trailhead at Knik Lake near Anchorage to the remote interior village of McGrath then continues to the Bering Sea before reaching the trail's conclusion in Nome.
