Our relatively warm past four months rendered the ice on the Chena River, once again, unsafe for running. A group of cold weather equipment testers, from Germany, proved the point several weeks ago, when they dropped their rental car through the ice near the Princess Hotel. The alternate course on Dale Road, once infrequently used for this race, has been called into service for four of the past five years. (As slick and icy as Dale Road is, given the choice, most evryone would opt for the Chena River any day.) There was a smaller than normal turnout, undoubtedly owing to the many other activities in Fairbanks and Anchorage this weekend (the Festival of Native Arts, the World Championships of the International Federation of Sled Dog Sports, and the opening preparations for the World Ice Art Championships - all in Fairbanks; the Tripod Raising on the Tanana River at Nenana, and theWinter Special Olympics and the start of the Iditarod Trail sled dog race in Anchorage). One of the Russian ice sculptors from Izhevsk, Vitaliy Lendnev, joined the race and gave it a real international flair.
