28th Annual Equinox Marathon Relay
A few people have started posting collections of photos of the race a couple of weeks ago. Here are the ones we know about so far. If you have posted photos online and wouldn’t mind our including the link here, please email the Web master and we’ll update this post. Thanks!
Runners, Joggers, Hikers, and Walkers:
The shirts are on order and should arrive mid-October. Once they arrive, we will send out a mass email.
For those that did not receive their age-group, overall, or relay awards at the banquet, you can pick them up at Goldstream Sports during their regular store hours. If you live out of town, they have been shipped out to you.
Pictures are coming soon. Our photographer is putting them together. Again, I will send an email out once they are ready. In the meantime, here is a link to some photos that someone took the time to put together. Thank you Nurit Katz!
We’re pleased to announce that you can now buy an Equinox course trail sign online. This is a great way to support the Equinox Marathon. Check out the details on the Course Marker page.
All of the results for the 2017 Equinox Marathon and Relay are now posted on the Results page. Huge thanks to John Estle for his tireless work in getting them organized and posted, along with some of the other documents that break down the races in various ways.

Calling all participants of the 55th Annual Equinox Marathon!
Pick-up you bib and race goodies either Thursday, Sept. 14 and Friday, Sept. 15 from 5-8pm at ***NEW LOCATION*** Upper Deck Level of Patty Ice Arena on the UAF Campus, in between the SRC and the Patty Center.
Not registered yet? It’s not too late! You can register at bib pick-up times, no problem! We’ll be there to help you. Online registration will close at 5pm on Sept 12.
Due to registration being up this year, we are slim on t-shirts. If you are signing up and it says sold out, we are ordering more! If you do not receive one at bib pick-up, we will give you a voucher to redeem a shirt when they arrive. If you have any questions, you can contact Stacy via email: email@example.com.
Geese, Ducks, and Cranes practice flying in formation over fields of long grass. The Night Sky is Dark. Yellow leaves flutter to the ground and streets. What does this mean?
That the Equinox Marathon is 9/16/17! And that means that volunteers are needed on Thursday and Friday, September 14 and 15, from 4:45 to 8:00 PM for bib pickup.
If you can help, please contact Susan at firstname.lastname@example.org or (907) 590-5086.
