Race day registration will open at 12:00 p.m. and the race begins at 1:00 p.m. the University of Alaska Fairbanks Ski Hut. Support the conservation of Alaska’s largest refuge by participating in this fun, family-friendly event!

The 5K is stroller friendly, and is an enjoyable walk for those who are not competitive runners.
