Come join the Skiathon Sunday, March 18, on the University of Alaska Fairbanks trail system.

The 20-kilometer, classic-only Skiathon is a race and a tour. Participants are timed but can go as fast or as slow as they want. All finishers receive a Skiathon patch. Early registration is only $15, but registration forms must be turned in before noon on March 17. People can sign up on the day of the race, but late registration fees go up to $40. Pick up and drop off registration forms at Beaver Sports or send them in by mail. Registration forms and waivers are available online at:

Bib pick-up on race day is in the UAF Ski Hut on West Ridge, near the Geophysical Institute. It starts at 10am and the race/tour starts at 11am.

This joint event of the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks and the UAF Trails Club is a fundraiser for the UAF trail system. For more information or to volunteer contact Stan Justice (479-5017; stanjustice(at)
