Equinox Photos

As usual, there were some great photographers out on the Equinox course on Saturday. Here is a list of those who have shared their collection photos publicly and let us know about them. If you have any questions or want any of the photos, please contact the photographer directly.

  • Mark Lindberg: I just posted a sample of the 600 or so photos I took of the Equinox Marathon to my InstaGram (@mslindbergsportspics) and smug mug site. Please feel free to share these links with the participants if you like. I will be editing and posting more photos over the next couple of weeks.
  • Todd Paris: Former UAF photographer, posted his photos on his smug mug site.

We’ll update this post as we hear of more. Please email us at running@runningclubnorth.org with your links.

Important: Course Change!

There is a slight change of course for tomorrow. It was shuffled last night and will be very well marked, so don’t fret!

It is basically the old Equinox course…

The change is around mile 21.5. It will basically now go: Henderson Rd -> Gold Hill -> Cloudberry -> then back to the power line.

Awards Banquet Information

Here is your Awards Banquet Information:

As the Equinox Marathon and Relay finish line closes, the doors for the Equinox Awards Banquet open in the adjacent UAF Student Rec Center at 6:00PM.

This is a chance for all Equinox participants to gather and tell tales about the accomplishments of the day (most true, some not) and to celebrate the Equinox community spirit. There will be food and drink, awards, and Matias Sarri will be there signing his book.

For Equinox participants, your ticket, covering you and one guest, is on your bib. You can buy additional tickets at the door for $15.00. (Relay Team’s only need (1) ticket for all 3 members.)
