ASPA UAF West Ridge Skijor Race, February Sunday February 28 2016
The annual ASPA skijor race on the UAF West Ridge trails will take place on February 28 at NOON. This is a very rare opportunity to skijor on some of the best maintained ski trails in Fairbanks.
The race distances are 4.5 miles or 9 miles. Racers can compete at either distance in a one dog class or a mixed class of two or three dogs. We will also have a beginner class which will be approximately 1 mile.
We will meet and start in the area behind the IARC building just north of the UAF Ski Hut. Please be sure to clean up after your animals so we can continue using this venue in the future. And remember, NO DOGS ON THE UAF TRAILS IN THE WINTER!! Thank you. As always, beginners are welcome and encouraged.
Registration: Registration will be from 11-11:30AM. The cost of this race is $10 for preregistration and $15 for late registration (after Friday Feb 26th). Half of the entry fees will be donated to the UAF trails club. If you would like to preregister e-mail Kathleen Boyle, email@example.com.
The race will be cancelled if the temperature at 458-3745 extension 1113 is colder than -15 at 9:30 am. Updates on race status can be obtained from the ASPA website (www.alaskaskijoring.org) or hotline (457-5456) shortly after 9:30 on race day.
Like all races, volunteers are needed: 2 Trail Marshals – At major intersections to make sure competitors go the right direction, 1 Start Timer, 1-2 Handlers, and 2 Finish Timers. Please let Brian Charlton, firstname.lastname@example.org know if you can help.
