EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION
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.
