This course begins and ends on the University of Alaska, Fairbanks campus. It brings you up and over Ester Dome...and up and over again.
Feed stations are roughly every 2 or 3 miles.
You only need to look at the elevation map once before you say "I'm in" or "never". Basically, the race is 8 miles of flat, 5 miles of straight up, 5 miles of up and down, and another 8 miles of rolling back down Ester Dome.
It is a very well marked course and the whole Fairbanks community comes out to support the event. Click here
