Knik 100 & 200 Races will Start on Knik Lake
The 2017 Knik 100 and 200 races will begin and end on Knik Lake in Knik! Trail conditions are good with sufficient snow and the lake ice is thick enough. We’re very excited to begin the races on our traditional race course. However, we recommend having two snow hooks and a drag for optimum control.
The 2017 Knik 100 and 200 Races are On!
The 2017 Knik 100 and 200 races are on! Current and anticipated conditions are good in Willow, so if necessary, we will move the race to Deshka Landing. However, we’re still hoping to start and finish the races on Knik Lake. The lake’s ice thickness is good but we need more snow on the Knik-area
2016 Knik 100 and Knik 200 Races Cancelled
Unfortunately, due to current unsafe conditions on the trail, and due to the lack of certainty that conditions will change in the next two weeks preceding the scheduled start of the 2016 Knik 100 and Knik 200 races, we feel it’s in the best interest of safety to cancel both races. We have looked at
New Race Course for Knik 200 but Knik 100 Cancelled
After careful consideration, the Knik Race Committee has determined that because of current conditions, starting and finishing the Knik 100 and 200 races at Knik Lake is not a viable option.

Conditions Hopefully Improving
Robert Bear, Kristy Berington, and Will Rhodes have moved up from the waiting list for the Knik 200 to the field of 40. Meanwhile, temperatures in the Willow and Knik area have dropped significantly and are forecast to remain cold, which will hopefully enable the waterways along the race course to freeze. But what we
The 2014 Knik 100 and 200 Races are On!
The 2014 Knik 100 and 200 races are on! Snow and trail conditions are favorable. Later today we’ll email a trail report to all teams with details from Harry Caldwell (Race Marshall) and Sam Crawford (Trail Boss) who have been working hard on the trail.
Trail Condition Report
Overall, the trail is good throughout the race course. A map of the course will be coming soon.
Changes Made to Knik Race Courses
To streamline race costs and logistics, we’ve modified the Knik 100 and Knik 2oo race courses. Both races will start at Knik Lake in Wasilla. Teams participating in the Knik 200 will go to Eagle Quest Lodge (approximately 60 miles from the start), sign in/out, drop dogs if necessary, then continue to Yentna Station (approximately 35
