Raena Rowland completes her 40 km Sonot, virtually

from Raena:

Thanks for keeping up the spirit of the Sonot in this virtual form.  I have these three sections that I skied over the last week at birch and on the river.

I skied the river on 3/17/20, so I don’t know if that counts, but I’m sending it anyway.   I was signed up for the 40K, but if nothing else, I’ve at least got a solid 20K in up at birch.(Sure, it counts–I skied on Tuesday, 17 March, and the trails were fantastic).

I’ve pieced my Sonot Kkaazoot 40K together in three segments (some classic and skate)!

I think the Sonot is one of the best things about Fairbanks. I was able to participate in the 30K last year and was really looking forward to the race in 2020. Thank you to the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks for thinking out of the box and making this race into a virtual experience!

I’m not the faster skier, but I love being on the trails and in the tracks with my fellow Fairbanksians. I love this community so very much and how we band together to make the best of a difficult situation.

Cheers to the Sonot 2020!

I hope many more sign up, ski hard and donate to the trail fund!

Thank you Raena! Now that you’ve skied the 30 and 40 km Sonot Kkaazoot, you’ll be ready for the 50 km Sonot Kkaazoot in 2021.
