2012 Finish in Fairbanks

Iron Dog will join the Annual Tired Iron Event for a big snowmobile weekend and finish line of our Pro Class race in downtown Fairbanks. This route was added in 2011 adding approximately 50-60 miles to the total mileage of the Iron Dog which now exceeds 2,000 miles.

Saturday, February 25th: Pro Class Finish

  • 9:00 am | Tired Iron races.
  • 11:30 am | Iron Dog starts moving in to setup for the Finish.
  • Approximately 1:00 pm | 1st Place team should be getting close to the end of the race.
  • 5:00 pm | We start wrapping up most of the big Finish activities and head for the award ceremonies.
  • Late night | After party at Pike’s Landing!

Finish Route

The route goes south of Fairbanks through the Fort Wainwright Recreational Area toward North Pole, Alaska and Chena River Lakes Flood Control Project. Racers will drive north through the Flood Project and onto the Chena River heading back toward downtown Fairbanks. Special thanks to John Johnston, Compeaus, Fort Wainwright and Army Corps of Engineers for all the effort in making this route possible.

Our Fairbanks Headquarters location is located at the SpringHill Suites in downtown Fairbanks. We’re expecting the 1st Place team to arrive sometime around 1PM on Saturday, February 25th. Stay tuned to our Facebook page and this website for the latest news about this and all our events.

Why Downtown?

Most importantly, we want to give Fairbanks a big show and attract more fans and attendance. Also, the Tired Iron event will be going on the morning before our Pro Class racers arrive which should add to the festivities of the day. Come to Fairbanks, check out the events, the incredible Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center, Yukon Quest headquarters and the sponsors of both great events going on that day!
