Equinox Weather

Runners, Joggers, Hikers, and Walkers:

There’s a reason why some call this one of the toughest marathons in the world...PLEASE READ –>

Saturday looks like there will be chilly rain. We want everyone to be safe, so we are advising people to have rain gear. Bring hats, headbands and gloves – be prepared.

There is a chance of snow on top of Ester Dome in the morning, but the possibility of snow at the top increases during the day Saturday as a cold front moves through the valley.

We will have a warm-up shack at the top of Ester Dome if anyone needs it for an emergency. There is no bag or clothing drop, however.  You may leave a bag with your relay team member.

If you have questions, please ask our race officials.

Equinox Parking

UAF will be closing the Nenana Parking Lot, the large parking lot across the street from the Patty Center/SRC, due to Starvation Gulch that evening.

Parking at the start will be minimal. Weekend parking is free on the UAF campus, and the Taku Lot on Farmer’s Loop will be available. Other options are to park at West Valley/Hutch, carpool and get dropped off.

Whatever you do, get there early – Parking will be tight! Remember, the SRC will be open and warm for early risers.

Let me know if you have any questions!
