Sunrise: 10:51 AM Sunset: 3:01 PM
4 hours 10 minutes - possible sunshine

Once again,the official 9 AM Fairbanks temperature at Fairbanks International Airport was colder than our official race cutoff temperature of -25°F but, nonetheless, 10 runners and the Race Director were in the parking lot at 11 AM, mostly ready to run. With the closest temperature sign reading -35°F, the race was run without a hitch (and no frostbite either). Up on West Ridge the sun had still not risen high enough, to clear the layer of fog and haze lying over the Tanana Valley, to greet the runners on their return along the out-and-back course.

But, runners and others, take heart: we have gained nearly 30 minutes of possible sunshine since our shortest day last month, and we have almost reached our coldest day. Conditions will improve! Oh, the race - Scott McCrea covered the hilly course with a winning time of 30:40, and Jane Lanford ran a winning 34:41.
