Due to irregular and unsafe ice conditions, the 2016 Tired Iron events will not be held on the Chena River this year. Instead, we will be hosting our events over two separate weekends in March, at two (2) separate locations.
In the morning of Saturday, March 5th, at the intersection of Helmericks Ave. and Herb Miller Blvd. (right next to Fred Meyer-East on the Old Steese Hwy) we will be hosting the Jurassic Classic, the mini Arctic Man race and the Dog Sled rides.
Later, that afternoon, in the NE Corner of the Walmart Parking lot (just a couple of blocks away), we will be hosting the kid’s favorites… the “Spring Ping Fling” ping pong ball drop, and the Moose Turd Bowling.
Both locations are excellent in-town locations, with high exposure and both have ample parking.
Then, on the following Sunday, March 13th, thanks to the U.S Army Corps of Engineers, we will be racing the Classic, Wet Iron, and Fun Run races out at the Chena Flood Project Spillway, located just off Laurence Road. The track is an eight (8) mile track (2 miles longer than previous years), and we will be making three (3) laps, for a total of 24 miles of full throttle fun!
