Come one, come all to the Pre-Race Ruckus!
Let loose like you’re about to set sail for Alaska…with people who actually are about to set sail for Alaska.
Help us give the racers a night to remember before their long, wet journey while you put faces (and hulls) to those blips on the tracker screen. See some boats on the hard, enjoy great food and drinks, and dance the night away with party-fueling Seattle soul band Down North.
Bring your sense of adventure and competitive spirit! Get a free tattoo, test the limits of a drysuit, or do something questionable with hot sauce! No, we’re not going to be more specific.
Featuring New Belgium Brewing Beer, Schilling Cider, Sailor Jerry’s Rum, burgers by Arran Stark of Jefferson Healthcare, and additional food by In Season Catering’s Salmon Wagon, Mo-Chilli BBQ, Kurly’s Fry Cart, Dogs-A-Foot, and Fiddlehead Creamery. More food vendors to be announced soon!
The Pre-Race Ruckus is all the spirit of Race to Alaska, 10% of the danger.
