The annual Midnight Sun Race is coming up next week.
It’s a fun, 10K race that we participate in every year.
The race starts at 10pm sharp by Patty Center on UAF and winds its way down through the subdivision south of Geist, then across University Avenue, south on same, and goes through Riverview Subdivision before finally ending inside Pioneer park.
The FCC participates by leading the lead runners through the course.   The pace is set by the lead runner(s) and we simply give them a point to focus on so they can concentrate on the race and not be distracted by the crowd.
We also provide basic course security (keeping spectators out of the race course, for example) because we’re the only cyclists allowed on the course.
I need between 4-6 FCC riders to show up next Saturday, the 23rd, at the Patty Center parking lot at around 9:30.
Once we’re all there, I will give everyone more info on the course, what’s expected of us, etc.
It usually only takes about 20 or 30 minutes to get to Pioneer Park, and then we’re done.
If you’re interested, send me an email, or call my landline (455-8448) to leave a message and/or you can text/call me on my cell (687-0777)
