Chena Lake Race
By Sara Tabbert, Race Director
The race at Chena Lakes Recreation Area took place on Saturday, February 9. Temperatures rose into the mid-20’s, making it nice for racers if not a bit hot for some of the dogs. The recent fresh snow and excellent grooming by FNSB Parks and Recreation made for a beautiful trail.
We had 17 participants who ran 19 races (Sara Elzey and Andy Warwick both ran two teams.) There was some debate as to exactly where the 6.5 mile turn was located, but those who were attentive were rewarded. A few participants made their own adventures!
Kathleen Boyle, Alice Stickney, Paula Ruckhaus, Chris Burrow, and Brandon-McGrath Bernhard all helped out with timing and handling. Thanks as well to Janna Miller for helping to scout the trail earlier in the week.
Bud Marschner took a number of photos of the event. You can see them on Bud’s Alaska Photos.
