Downhill Dome

The Downhill Dome is THIS Saturday, June 4!

Registration: 9-9:30am
Pre-race meeting: 9:30am
Race start: 10:30am or so

We will talk about how to get to the top at the pre-race meeting. It typically takes about an hour to get to the top of the Dome. We will start when everyone gets to the top.

We will hold the registration and pre-race meeting in the North Bivouac Trailhead on north side of Campbell Airstrip Road. Take Tudor Rd. east from Lake Otis, take a right on Campbell Airstrip Rd. The North Bivouac trailhead parking lot will be on your left several miles down the road. You can't miss it.

Here is the course map.

This is a downhill ONLY race, meaning that you are timed from the top to the bottom only. This is a super fun & fast race- if you've never done a downhill race, come on out and give this great trail a try!

Helmets are required!

$15 for adults, under 18 race free. Must be an ABC member to race- go here to check it out.

Any questions, email Megan @ megpiersma@gmail.com.

Arctic Valley Hill Climb May 17

Our permit has been approved!

Here are the race details:

Tuesday, May 17, 2011
Race registration is 6-6:45pm.
Pre-race meeting at 6:45pm.
Race will start at 7pm sharp.

Parking & registration will be in a dirt parking lot on the right side of the Arctic Valley road about 1.5 miles up from the Moose Run driving range. To get there, take the Glenn HWY out towards Eagle River. Take the Arctic Valley exit. Go straight towards mountains, past the golf course and driving range. The paved road will turn to dirt- keep going. You will eventually see a large parking lot on the right. Look for a red Subaru wagon with a table set up next to it. Register here.

Be aware that there is road construction on Arctic Valley Road (just the paved portion) so it may take a bit longer to get to the registration area- it may be a good idea to give yourself a few extra minutes.

The race will start back down at the driving range, but you'll all get there via bike.

The Arctic Valley hill climb is about 7 miles, all up hill, to the Alpenglow Chalet parking lot. It's great for getting your hill work in!


It's $15 for adults, under 18 race free.
