Iditarod without Dogs - 1,000 Miles to Nome on Foot with Pete Ripmaster

Pete Ripmaster of Asheville, North Carolina, has accomplished the nearly impossible: running the iconic Iditarod arctic sled dogs race... on foot, dragging a sled of his gear through the winters of Alaska for 26 and a half days.  This ultra-marathon is widely recognized as one of the most grueling athletic events in the world.  Pete is back home in Western North Carolina, and is stoked to share his story

Second Gear, in collaboration with Keith Wright of Wright Creative, will be hosting a very special night with Pete on June 2nd, from 7-10pm at 795 Haywood Rd.  Pete will be making a 90 minute presentation, including a question and answer session.  Join us for an evening of storytelling, adventure, and local craft beer, as Pete explains the hows and the whys of his epic feat.

Proceeds from the event will benefit The Hope Chest for Women - giving hope to women in Western North Carolina living with breast or gynecological cancers.
