Congratulations to Jane and Steve Lanford for laying out a challenging new course on the flanks of Murphy Dome. The just over 8 miles of uphill, over back roads a few of which were inches deep in silty powder, followed by 2 3/4 miles of steep descent down Murphy Dome Road to the start, was sufficient to get everyone's circulation going. Sub 6-minute times in the steep 10th mile were not uncommon. Views along the upper sections of the course were great, both upwards towards the old Air Force site on the top of Murphy Dome, and southwestwards over Goldstream Valley towards the Alaska Range.

The cool temperatures plus the wind in the exposed upper reaches of the course, provided for some fast times in the first running of this race. Kent Slaughter was the overall winner with a time of 68:16 while Michelle Mitchell topped the women with 78:11.
