Polar Educators International (PEI) announces the first-ever Spring Equinox 5K Run/Walk. The event will take place in conjunction with the Arctic Science Summit Week and Arctic Observing Summit meetings in Fairbanks, Alaska, on 19 March 2016 at the UAF North Campus area.

The race course will include roads and trails on the UAF campus, with views of the Alaska Range, a chance to explore the natural areas of the UAF campus, and some well-deserved time outside after a week of meetings. This event is open to all ages and prizes will be awarded to top finishers.

Registration for the event is $20.00 and is available at Beaver Sports in Fairbanks (3480 College Road) and at the UAF Wood Center. The entry fee will be used to support Polar Educators International.
