As late registration begins, we have a total of 216 skiers from throughout Alaska and beyond signed up to ski one to the 4 events making up the 30th annual Sonot Kkaazoot. 134 skiers are signed up for the 20 km Sonot, including 19 skiers from Galena. 72 skiers will continue on to the Jim Whisenhant Ski Trails at Birch Hill Recreation Area to complete their 40 or 50 km courses.
Remember that all registration must be done online. Register by 7 p.m. on Thursday, 23 March and pay “late registration” fees. After that “race day” fees apply until 9 a.m. ADT on Saturday, 25 March 2017. Because of enhanced security considerations on Fort Wainwright, no foreign skiers may sign up for the 40 or 50 events after 7 p.m. on 23 March. By the end of bib pick-up, we must submit to the U.S. Army a list of all foreign skiers and their passport numbers and country of issue.
Check the “Entries” page and make sure that you entered all your information correctly.
The predicted below normal temperatures on race day will ensure that no skier has wet boots this year.
