Seekins Ford Golden Heart Trail Run

Runners of all ages can show off their fancy footwork at the 10th Annual Seekins Ford Golden Heart Trail Run on Saturday, August 19, at Birch Hill Recreation Area.

The Seekins Ford Golden Heart Trail Run, organized by the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks, is the only race in Running Club North’s Usibelli Series held solely on trails. If that weren’t incentive enough, the course includes hay bales that runners can hurdle over or run around. The run is great for runners of all ages and for cross-country skiers who typically race Birch Hill trails only when covered in snow.

The event includes prizes for top two overall males and females, T-shirts, prize drawings, and youth participation awards. Prizes are made possible by Woolly Rhino, Beaver Sports, Goldstream Sports and Raven Cross Country. Trax Outdoor Center will provide an ice cream buffet after the race.

The Seekins Ford Golden Heart Trail Run also serves as a fundraiser for NSCF-FXC, the junior race-training program of the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks.

 

Three races, one each for different age brackets, will be held on the day of the run:

  • 10:00 am: 1 kilometer for ages 7 and under
  • 10:20 am: 2.5 kilometers for ages 8-14
  • 10:45 am: 5 kilometers for ages 15 and older
