Cold Hard Competition

“START DAY: Thursday, January 30th. It’s been a hectic few days leading up to the race. A weird winter so far and a mid-January thaw mean that the ice on the Yukon River isn’t safe to travel over, so the course has been re-routed. Reports have come in that the thaw has awoken slumbering bears in the area, and some of the runners are anxious: one of the few advantages of running through the Yukon wilderness in winter, rather than summer, is that you aren’t going to come face to face with a grizzly.”
