History

Our 2019 event is the second edition of “Six Days in the Dome”. The first was held in August 2014 in Anchorage Alaska at the Alaska Dome, and was highlighted by Joe Fejes breaking the American Record for six-day with his 580 mile performance. (Joe subsequently ran even further in 2015 with a 606 mile performance at the EMU 6-day race held in Balatonfured, Hungary.)

Additionally, Traci Falbo broke the women’s 48-hour World Indoor Track Record and American Record with 242.093 miles. Numerous other national marks were set and many of our Alaska participants came home with their own personal best performances.

The Alaska race created a significant amount of buzz in the international ultrarunning community on social media and was also widely covered by the mainstream media including the following publications:

ESPN “The Extreme End of Extreme Running

Sportsonearth.com “A Circular Craft

Newscientist.com “Runners in Alaska Cover Nearly 600 miles in six days

HBO boxing commentator and author Kieran Mulvaney attended the event and was the author of the ESPN article. We also had the local Anchorage TV and newspapers that had daily coverage of our event. We expect our second edition to garner even more attention.

Thanks to this top notch real-time chip timing system www.ultratimingpros.com the Six Days in the Dome-the Redux 2019 is expected to attract more than 30,000 unique visitors to our webcast during the weeklong event. No doubt many ultrarunners across the globe will be glued to their mobile devices and computers as the race unfolds.
