Join REI and the Mid-Iowa Boy Scout Council at the Fred Maytag II Scout Center for a screening of Expedition Alaska, a documentary film that follows adventure racing teams on one of the toughest courses in the world. The 74-minute film tells the store of a 7-day, non-stop endurance race that took place through the Alaskan wilderness. The documentary follows 20 teams of four in a 350-mile competition as they mountain bike through the sharp peaks of the Kenai Peninsula, traverse mountain ranges & crevasse filed glaciers, & paddle countless life-threatening rivers & rapids. Boy Scout popcorn and drinks will be available for purchase. After the screening, join our MC Dr. Demming for a live Q&A with racers & crew presented by Above + Beyond Cancer, featuring the director Brian J. Leitten & racer Jeri Lewis.
