Transportation and Parking
Racers are responsible for their own transportation to/from the race start. The race starts and finishes at the Wickersham Dome trailhead at milepost 28 Elliott Highway. To reach the trailhead from Fairbanks: take the Steese Highway north 10 miles to Fox, continue north (towards Livengood) another 28 miles. The Wickersham Dome trailhead is on the right and is well marked. The sign reads "White Mountains National Recreation Area." All racers, spectators, and volunteers MUST park in the large pullout across the highway from the trailhead parking lot. -- Map available here.
Allow at least one hour to reach the race start from downtown Fairbanks. Cell phone service is usually available at the trailhead so racers should be able to call for a ride at the finish if necessary. If your cell phone does not work, racers will be allowed to make a phone call using a cell phone available at the race headquarters located at the trailhead.
Parking is NOT available at the Wickersham Dome trailhead. Racers, spectators, and volunteers MUST park in the large pullout across the highway from the trailhead. A race volunteer will be directing traffic into this pullout the morning of the race start. A second volunteer will ensure that vehicles are parked tightly and not blocking the pullout because it is frequently used by semi-trucks. Also, keep clear of the Alyeska Pipeline access road that spurs off from the pullout. Do not leave valuables in your vehicle.
