In March 2020, world-class endurance athlete, Rebecca Rusch, set out to ride a fat bike 350 miles across the frozen Alaskan wilderness.

The Iditarod Trail Invitational promised the challenge of a lifetime but after an early mistake, Rebecca’s race takes on new meaning before she emerges from the trail into a global pandemic.
