Here’s another activity that you’ll only find in Alaska. Have you ever used a porta-potty and thought to yourself, “Wow, this would be awesome if I could race this thing!” No? Well, you’d be the only one if you lived in Anchorage. Every year, the community holds outhouse races where people push them down slippery roads. If you’re wondering what the rewards are, the one with the fastest outhouse gets a cash prize!
The UAA and Engineering Club in Anchorage host these races to raise money for whatever charitable efforts they’re involved in. Maybe it’s providing awareness that outhouses are great modes of transport.
