With early bib pick-up scheduled for tonight at the Doyon, Ltd. Building from 5 to 7 p.m., we already have 280 skiers signed up for the various events on Saturday. While 75% of the entries are skiers in the Fairbanks North Star Borough, 69 out-of-town skiers are currently planning to fly or drive to Fairbanks to participate. High school skiers from Galena, Nenana, and Anchorage’s Dimond High School will be at the start line on Saturday morning. Fifty eight percent of the skiers plan to ski in the 20 km event with 118 skiers currently signed up to ski the 40 or 50 km course.
Check to see that your entry has been recorded correctly.
We still have one skier who indicated that he was born in 2016, and hasn’t responded to our email query.
Thank you to all our foreign skiers in the 40 and 50 km events who have contacted us and provided their passport numbers as requested by our Fort Wainwright collaborators.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the course remains intact for three more days.
