The Equinox Ultra Marathon is an annual marathon held in Fairbanks, Alaska near the time of the autumnal equinox. It is one of the most difficult marathon courses in the world and includes 3285 ft. (1001 m) of elevation gain (and loss). The Ultra Marathon was started in 2009.

Course Highlights

The ultramarathon event was added in 2009. In 2009 and 2010 the course was 50 km in length, following the marathon course until just past mile 25, then turning north to follow the Skarland Trail in a clockwise direction until connecting with the regular marathon course just past mile 2. From there the course returned to the start by following the marathon course in reverse direction.

In 2011 the course was extended to create a true ultra event of approximately 40 miles in length. The course follows the marathon course for the first 20 miles to Henderson Road. It then descends following St. Patrick's Road, regaining the marathon course at the base of Ester Dome at approximately mile 9. The course then follows the marathon course in reverse to approximately mile 3.5, from where it diverges in an out-and-back to the east climbing to the KUAC radio tower and back. The course then resumes following the marathon course in reverse until approximately mile 2, from where the course then follows the Skarland Trail in counter-clockwise direction until it regains the marathon course just past mile 25. It then follows the marathon course to the finish.
