An IMPORTANT note from Running Club North

An IMPORTANT note from Running Club North:

Dear Equinox Participant,

The 58th running of Running Club North’s (RCN) Fairbanks Equinox Marathon and first running of the Half Marathon on September 18, 2021 will occur during truly unique times—dominated as they are by COVID. With unique times come unique responsibilities. RCN’s Board of Directors wants to mention its expectations of participants:

  1. Do not attend for any reason (including as an observer) if you have ANY COVID symptoms or have been in contact with anyone known or suspected to have COVID within the last 14 days.
  2. While in attendance please abide by the following:
    • Maintain social distancing at the start of the race, at aid stations to the best of your ability, and, especially, during the pre-race briefing
    • Mask up until the race is underway

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. The Equinox Marathon/Half Marathon is a highlight of the fall season for many of us and I look forward to seeing you on the trails. Race Director Stacy Fisk is doing an admirable job organizing these races under truly unusual times. Let’s all do our parts by keeping ourselves and each other healthy.

For the RCN Board of Directors,
Arthur Hussey, President
