Athabaskan: Sonot (pronounced “SAW NOT”, “springtime”) Kkaazoot (“to slide your feet across the snow”)
Saturday, March 28, 2015
Thank you to the 244 racers who enjoyed perfect spring weather and fantastically groomed trails for the 27th Annual Sonot Kkaazoot.
Thanks to all the volunteers who made this year’s race possible and for the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks groomers who put in 10 hours of work so that you wouldn’t be skiing for even half that time.
Results are posted on the “Results” tab above with highlights below.
We hope that you will join us again on Saturday, March 28, 2015!
