After organizing everything in the banana boat, (note: see the geophysical institute behind it) which was around 10 PM, I heard a ruckus near the campus. I followed the noise and found out it was a marathon with about 4,000 people. Supposedly the coolest thing that ever happens in Fairbanks, or so the locals tell me. So I ran to my room and got changed. I made it to the booth just in time to register even though the race had already started. I was literally the last person to sign up. I dodged people left and right and sprinted. I think I got around to the 1,000 person mark. Wet, chilly.... ain't nothing like the Hut Point Marathon in Antarctica. This was a walk in the park.
