Planning Reminders

  • Be sure to stock up on plenty of food and bring lots of water and beverages to stay hydrated - it gets hot with all the sun!

  • Campfires must be kept of reasonable size and low intensity, bonfires are prohibited by AK Division of Forestry.

  • Don’t forget to bring a side for the Potluck on Saturday night, this is an event tradition and a great time to mingle.

  • Corner Workers will be provided water and sandwiches, but should remember to bring their own sunscreen, chair and snacks - you’ll be out there for a while when working.

We look forward to sharing this awesome racing and camping weekend with you and wish you safe travels on your way to Tok!
