Our coldest race-morning temperature in almost five years kept large crowds away, but a core of intrepid runners showed up to test the ice fog conditions along Dale Road, adjacent to Fairbanks International Airport. With temperatures hovering around -40F, and colder around the end of the runway, no one attempted the 8 mile course - battling the ice fog and slippery conditions along Dale Road was enough of a challenge! While the yellow Running Club North Arctic Rent-A-Car official thermometer recorded -40F at the Start/Finish line, the official race time temperature from the Weather Bureau at the airport, was -42F.
