2016 Sonot Kkaazoot Course Updates

New for the 2016 Sonot Kkaazoot: If you are a foreign national and have signed up for the 40 or 50 km Sonot Kkaazoot, we need to give the Fort Wainwright authorities your passport number. If you are already registered for the 40 or 50 km events, please send contact@sonotkkaazoot.org your name, country, and passport number at your earliest convenience. If we do not have this information by bib pick-up, we will be unable to give you a race bib.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Because of increased security on Fort Wainwright, we must provide them in advance a list of non-US skiers and their passport numbers because the 40 and 50 km Sonot Kkaazoot courses traverse Army land.

After a several month drought, several inches of snow fell over the Fairbanks area yesterday. Today the hoarfrost and snow crystals were glistening on the newly groomed trails at Birch Hill!

All the snow shoveling that we did last week to cover areas where debris or ground was showing now lies beneath a blanket of fresh white snow. For those of you who might have been considering doing the 50 km classical Sonot Kkaazoot, the abrasive ground ice in the tracks is now covered. You will no longer need multiple pairs of skis to finish the 50 km course.

What are you waiting for? Trails look fantastic and the Chena River is still holding solid. Remember that regular registration for the Sonot Kkaazoot ends tomorrow.  Join the 207 skiers who had already registered by this morning at:
