ARCTIC MAN has TONS of snow and we still have
parking slots available!
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 a lot of searching and decision making we have decided to change the race day for the 31st Arctic Man. So the race will 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.
We want to thank all of our sponsors: Polaris OutPost and Polaris, Odom Corp, AT&T, Alaska Spine institute, Miranda Electric, Fort Knox Mine, Motorfist, Monster Energy Drink, Sunshine Travel, Worry Free Alaska, NC Machinery, Airport Rentals, Radio 94.7 KZND, Delta Medical Transport, Alaska Dreams, Chugach National Forest Avalanche Center, AMMC, McClaren Lodge, Alaska State Troopers, White Spruce Trailers, Denali State Bank, Fairbanks Daily News Miner and all the volunteers and spectators’ that help each year.
The goal of the Arctic Man Volunteers and officials is to work very hard to make sure that SAFETY and COMMON SENSE are a priority. We will continue to improve this every year and any comments will be appreciated that can help make the event better for you and your families. We also especially want to thank the Alaska State Troopers for their support and help at the event. Also we want to thank Allen from McClaren Lodge for all his help grooming every night. AGAIN SEE YOU ALL 2016 April 6 thru 10, 2016. RACE DAY APRIL 7, 2016
