Entering

There are three opportunities to enter the Equinox events: online registration until the Tuesday before the race, onsite/online registration at bib pickup on Thursday and Friday, and onsite/online registration at the UAF Patty Center on race morning.

Past Equinox champions and life members have special registration procedures. Contact the race directors for instructions, which change a bit each year.

Online registration opens early in the calendar year and continues through 5:00PM on the Tuesday prior to the Equinox events. Early discounted registration fees are available. Entry fees increase to the standard fee about a month prior to race day. When registering for the relay, a single person registers the entire team and pays a single fee. It is up to the person who registers the team (the “team captain”) to ensure that the names, genders and dates of birth for all three team members are entered into the registration data.

If you have not entered by 5:00PM on the Tuesday prior to the Equinox events, you may enter at either the Thursday or Friday night bib pickup, or on race morning.

Fees for registering on Thursday night and Friday night at the bib pickup are higher than if you enter prior to 5:00PM on the Tuesday prior to the Equinox events.

No relay teams may enter on race morning.

See the Schedule for important registration dates and bib pickup locations and times, and the Entry Fees page for this year’s registration fees.

We’ll periodically update the marathon and relay Entry Lists pages after registration opens.
