Seventeenth Annual Buetow Dental Distance Series Concludes Sunday
The third and final race in the 17th Annual Buetow Dental Distance Series, presented by Raven Cross Country and organized by the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks, is scheduled for Sunday, February 21st. The 30Km classic technique mass-start event starts at 11:00AM in the Biathlon Stadium at the Birch Hill Recreation Area. For those wishing to race a lesser distance, competition will also be held over 10Km.
Sunday’s race is the Raven Romp.

Race day entries will be accepted, and bibs can be picked up between 9:45AM and 10:45AM Sunday in the Biathlon Building in the Biathlon Stadium, but will be $5 higher than the early entry fee.
