- DATES FOR 2015 -

April 6th - 12th,  2015

The Arctic Man is a unique event that has grown to be one of the major winter events held within the state of Alaska wilderness. The 2015 Arctic Man is the 30th anniversary, that’s thirty years of adrenaline rush and speed.

The main event is scheduled for Friday, April 10th, again we are hoping for good weather. We will use April 11 & 12 as back up dates. The race this year will START at 11 am and should be done by 2:30. The AMMC Hillcross is right after the race which should START about 3:00 p.m.

Communication at the Arctic Man has always been a major challenge throughout the past 30 years. This year the Anchorage Radio Station 94.7 KZND will be on site to operate our Official Arctic Man Radio Station and should be up all weekend with music playing and it will have race updates. The station is 107.5 FM. We are going to try and also give race times during the Arctic Man. Bring your small FM radios and we will try one more time.  


A big thank you to AT&T for cell phone service for the past three years and they should be back for 2015.


This event has come a long way in 30 years. We want to thank all of our sponsors, racers, volunteers, and helpers for making the Arctic Man such a great success. But, most of all, we want to thank all the spectators for coming back year after year!  

We again have a huge snowfall this year in the mountains. Please, we all want to be careful. Watch for dangerous snow situations, large snow packs, edges, and tight valleys. BE CAREFUL!


We are going to work very hard to make sure that SAFETY and COMMON SENSE are a priority. We have our own security to help you with any problems; please use them if you need them. We have our own medic staff to help with first aid problems; please use them. Alaska State Troopers will also be on site to help; we want to also thank them for their support.




Thank you,

Have a Safe & Good Time,


Howie Thies

Race Director
