The Arctic Man is a unique event that has grown to be one of the major winter events held within the state of Alaska wilderness. The 2014 Arctic Man is the 29th anniversary, that’s twenty nine years of adrenaline rush and speed.
The main event is scheduled for Friday, April 11, again we are hoping for good weather. We will use April 12 & 13 as back up dates. The race this year will START at 11 am and should be done by 2:30. The AMMC Hillcross is right after the race which should START about 3:00 p.m.
Communication at the Arctic Man has always been a major challenge throughout the past 29 years. This year the Anchorage Radio Station 94.7 KZND will be on site to operate our Official Arctic Man Radio Station and should be up all weekend with music playing and it will have race updates. The station is 107.5 FM. We are going to try and also give race times during the Arctic Man. Bring your small FM radios and we will try one more time.
