The Chena River to Ridge race will take racers around maintained snowmachine trails in the Chena River Recreation Area east of Fairbanks. It is a challenging race course with big ascents, fast downhills, blind turns, and outstanding views as the trail climbs high above the valley floor. Racers can either travel by ski, bike, or on foot. The short course will follow an approx 26 mile loop and the longer course will include a second loop that is 25 miles long for an approx total of 55 miles. Each loop will have an aid station at their approximate halfway point with hot/cold beverages and sweet/savory snacks. After the race, you can go and soak in the outdoor pond at Chena Hot Springs resort, about 30 minutes away.
