EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION

Phone calls: We know you have friends and family who want to track your progress during the race. We anticipate being able to post information online about racers' progress.  

 During the race, our phones are used to contact checkpoints and facilitate racer safety.  If a true emergency arises, and someone must contact a racer or race personnel, then this number may be used: (907-232-2553) In the history of the race, only five or six such situations have arisen.  Events such as death in the family or imminent birth of a child come to mind.
Arranging post-race transportation is NOT an emergency.
