From Sonot Kkaazoot race director:
Friday went well on the Chena River. The entire 20 km is flat and fast. We will see what the next two weeks bring weather wise. With the Chena River packed, and cold overnight temps, the ice should get thicker. Today I broke through in two places, very obvious! So, be aware and cautious if you ski on the Chena River. Enjoy, it’s very fast! This afternoon and tonight will be the best skating, before the snowmachines tear it up.
