Trail Conditions: (for the visitor) Click on [pic] for photo.

For those of you who haven't been on our club trails, let me explain a bit. We are a coastal village, which translates as windswept [pic]. There are no trees here and therefore we get a lot of snow drifting and sastrugi [pic]. This makes for slow trails, or icy where the snow has blown away. Of course, there may be some of you, used to groomed trails through the forest, who would hesitate to use the word 'trails' to describe our race courses. The race times may reflect these conditions.

Race Results for the March 8 Cape Horn Races

We had a beautiful day for the race, with plenty of sunshine, mild temperatures and a light northerly wind in places. The race started at the race start behind the elementary school and followed the trail around Icy View, crossed the Teller Road and then headed up Glacier Creek. Due to limited snow, we were unable to put in a trail over Cape Horn, so the entire trail remained within the Glacier Creek Valley. However, Jim Rowe did an amazing job and put in a beautiful trail. The 25 mile race followed the same trail as the 50 mile, however there was a turnaround loop put in about halfway up the course.

1st Nils Hahn 3:58:50
2nd Greg Parvin 4:03:58
3rd Ray Lang 4:04:22

Many thanks to Jim Rowe for all his time spent putting in and maintaining the trail, and Bob Lewis for once again doing an excellent job as timer and Race Marshall. Also, thanks to Mike Webber and Raleigh for being out on the trail to assist.

The 30 mile race started at 1pm at the Teller Road crossing and followed the original 50 mile Glacier Creek trail, now freshly staked and groomed by Jim Rowe. Race day was sunny and warm, approximately 30 degrees F.

In a very exciting race, Chris Rowe edged out Nils Hahn by 6 seconds for the win. This was the last tune-up for Chris and Nils before heading up to Kotzebue for the Kobuk 440.

Many thanks to our timer Diana Adams and Race Marshall Mike Weber. The race wouldn't have been possible without Jim Rowe, who re-staked and groomed the trail after the previous week's storm. Thanks Jim!

Salmon Derby, April 19
(The real one)

The real one didn't happen as planned: due to overflow and poor trail conditions the race committee moved the race up the Snake River, over to the Stewart River, up to the scenic Mosquito pass and back.
