Midnight Sun Run: Volunteers Needed.
It's getting close to that time of year again. The Fairbanks Cycle Club will be leading the runners again for the 41st Annual Midnight Sun Run on Saturday, June 24th, 2023. We ride ahead of the lead runners, pacing them, from the start at the Patty Center to the end inside Pioneer Park. We also provide basic course security by keeping the course clear and letting people know the runners are coming.
It's a fun and simple way to get our club in the public eye by participating in this community event every year.
The race starts at 10pm. I need at least six riders to participate, preferably more. The only requirement is that you are a member of the Fairbanks Cycle Club (we are the only cyclists allowed on the race course) and we would like for riders to wear FCC jerseys, shorts, shirts, t-shirts or whatever, if you have such to wear.
We lead the runners from the start to the finish, and the race usually takes about thirty minutes or so to complete. Once we get the runners to the finish line, we're done. You can ride whatever bike you're comfortable riding, be it a fat bike, road bike, recumbent, whatever.
If you are interested, text me at my cell (907) 687-0777 or leave a message on my home phone (907) 455-8448 or email me at email@example.com as soon as possible so I know how many riders I will have.
We'll be meeting up at the base of the stairs at Patty Center at around 9:30 or so and once everyone is assembled and ready to go, we'll form up and head to the start.
