Some Tips & Notes for the Day.

  • FYI: The last measured ice thickness is at least 27 inches to 34 inches or more. (2/13/2014)
  • BRING ICE CLEATS or any kind of footwear with traction, it is very slick on the lake this year.
  • Try to arrive before 10:30AM for the best parking and access to the Starting line.
  • Please follow the parking attendants directions, they are volunteers from Alaska Missions who are there to help make the flow of coming and going much smoother.
  • Dress warm and come hungry. We’ll have all our Iron Dog gear for sale, Raffle Tickets, Rockstar drinks and a few great food vendors on site to keep you warm on the inside.
