      What about the iditarod footrace? 1100miles from Anchorage to Nome in arctic conditions? Pretty disappointed you have the Mds up there – it’s a long walk in the park!

        Hi Michael, that is the whole point of this voting to find the right one. Thanks for your suggestion! Will be added there this week. In regards to MdS – that is exactly what people need to decide. If we made our decision based on our opinions, what would be the point of this voting? 🙂

      Not sure how you came up with your list but you missed a sure contender. Yukon Arctic Ultra follows the quest trail for a marathon, 100, 330 or 530 event in the extreme cold of Yukon in February.

        Gary, great suggestion, thanks! We went over the recent articles describing “the toughest footraces” and selected those. However, we hoped to get exactly this kind of feedback to adjust our selection. The race will be added there this week. Thank you.
