Bethel Search and Rescue advisory…..
BSAR and the K300 Race committee are advising all vehicles to stay off the river in front of Bethel during the K300 / Bogus 150 / Akiak Dash dog races this weekend. Normally vehicles would be able to park along side the starting chute, but the river ice is about 36 inches thick in the area and will not be able to sustain the weight of the all of the trucks and cars. The K300 will have about three official vehicles assisting with the races being utilized for the vets and other duties. Please be mindful of parking in the area and comply with Race Official directions. (See below advisory from K300)
K300 Restricting Vehicle Parking on Kuskokwim River for Race Activities
Due to the thickness and condition of the river ice, the K300 Race Committee is restricting vehicles from parking on the Kuskokwim River to watch any K300 events this weekend. Spectators are advised to park along Front Street, the small boat harbor or the surrounding vicinity and walk down to the ice to participate in the festivities. Only dog trucks assisting K300 race teams and official vehicles will be allowed to park on the ice.
If you have any questions regarding this change, please contact Race Manager Zach Fansler at 907.545.3300.
