From Race Director
This is a thank you to all race spectators, race teams and sponsors for attending 2015 30th anniversary Arctic Man. Mother nature played a huge part in the race this year. The snow and weather conditions put a halt to the race on Friday and continued throughout the weekend. Safety will always be our priority for this event, especially for racers but also for spectators watching the event. We have had to cancel the race only two times in a 30 year history, which is very good considering what the weather in ALASKA can do. After all lot of searching and decision making we have decided to change the race day for the 31st Arctic Man. So the race will be on not be on Friday, but Thursday April 7, 2016 with April 8 and April 9 our back up dates. RACERS PLEASE REVIEW NEW RULES FOR DRAWING START AND PURSE INFORMATION. IN RULES 3.1 AND 3.2 and Entry Form for deadlines.
