About the Downtown Route
The route veers 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. They will finish behind the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitor Center. Special thanks to John Johnston, Jeff Dyer, Dennis Falldorf, Roger Brown, Compeaus, Fort Wainwright and Army Corps of Engineers for all the effort keeping this route safe and well marked!
We expect the 1st Place team to arrive sometime around 12PM (noon) on Saturday, February 25, 2017. Stay tuned to our Facebook page and this website for the latest news about this and all our events.
