Today was the Kotzebue Sound Racing Association 2009 Women's Race. It's a 120 mile trail from Kotzebue to Noorvik and back.
Here is the list of racers. It does not include the late entries that entered the race after the list was published. I am not postine photos of all the racers. I missed a few poeple and some pics didn't come out so well so I am only posting the good ones. If I could figure out who racer was I posted their name under the photo. If anyone knows any of the other racers shown feel free to leave a comment and let me know who they are and what photo they are in.
Spectators stretched along the trail.
This is one of the cover planes that follow the racers. They keep an eye on everybody and will radio to race officials if there are any racers that wreck or run out of gas.
These three planes are following the winner back to the finish line in Kotzebue.
