Keep in mind that in low snow years, they use Fairbanks as a back up restart... The final decision isn't made until just a week or so before the race.

If the restart is in Fairbanks will it still be on Sunday?

You won't find any current information until just a few weeks before the race. And if they restart in Fairbanks, they usually do it on Monday. The need the extra day to haul everything to Fairbanks.

Thanks. If I stay Sunday night in ANC will it be possible to fly to Fairbanks early enough Monday to see the restart. I was already planning on flying back to Fairbanks?

Sure. There's a 6am flight that would get you up there in plenty of time.

The first flight is at 6 am and it is a little over an hour to get to Fairbanks. It is only $88 OW so you might want to book it as soon as you know your firm plans. Race start is usually around 9 am or 10 am so you should be good. I would book whatever you have firmed up or refundable plans as soon as possible as prices will only go up. This past year the decision to move was made in early February so probably expect the same timeline.
