Race Information

– Recreational/Northern Breed class

This class is designed for slower traditional Northern breeds, older slower mushers, beginners and pretty much anyone who wants to participate in the mushing community events at ADMA, without the competition. This class will be held first, since Northern breeds perform better at lower temperatures, and there is a longer gap of time before the next class starts, to allow all participants to finish prior to the next class start. Participants will receive prizes; no money is awarded for this class. All ADMA race rules and regulations apply. The number of dogs you choose to run, is completely up to you.

– Temperature cutoff

Preliminary races will be cancelled if the temperature at the Fairbanks International Airport is -20F or below at 8:15 a.m. on the day of the race. The temperature reported by the National Weather Service, at the Fairbanks International Airport at cut off time, regardless of the time of the update, is considered the official airport temperature.
To check the temperature by phone call: 907-458-3745, press options 1-1-1-3.
