Jurassic Classic

jurassicpic


“Jurassic Classic”

A driver’s meeting will be held on the ice, in front of the race trailer, just before the race and is mandatory. Click here to see the Schedule Page for official starting times. This event is intended for sleds no faster than 25 MPH, and for drivers that still have their faculties, but not necessarily their original teeth, hips, or knees.

The starting line for the Jurassic Classic is in Downtown Fairbanks, on the Chena River, right in front of the Golden Heart Plaza. The race heads upriver, crossing under both the Wendell Street Bridge and the Steese Expressway Bridge, where it turns around and heads back to complete a quick 1.6 mile lap. The race consists of five, 1.6 mile laps, for a total race of approximately 8 miles.  (Don’t worry, we’ll count them for you and waive you on or advise when you are done.) The idea of a short loop is to provide a much better view for your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and for our CPR crew. Remember, there will be no porta-potties stationed along the course between the starting line and the turnaround. The exact departure times will vary, depending on the number of entrants, and specifically, the number of crusty old bastards that actually enter this thing.
