    No 2013 Su 100 and Su 50

    Anyone have any more detail other than what is listed on their website. I am wondering if it is a race organization or external issue?

    It's just rumors, but i've heard: "race checkpoints were decimated this year by illness, fire, and ownership transition, leaving insufficient time to find safe alternatives"

    Is Point MacKenzie store back in operation? I think it partially burned in early August -> Early-morning fire damages Point MacKenzie store in Mat-Su | Mat-Su | ADN.com

    Hopefully things work themselves out for 2014!

    Susitna 100/ Little su 50K

    Hi all, sorry I didn't respond sooner. I am on the Su-100 board, it was our intention to hold a race this winter knowing we had some 'checkpoint' issues.

    Luce's property has sold, the new buyers do not plan to run the property as a business, and are not interested in hosting a checkpoint. For personal reasons our friends Kirk and Peggy had to bow out as our checkpoint hosts at Flathorn Lake. We still had a plan in place until the fire at the Pt. Mac store, the start/finish. The board considered this the third strike for the 2013 race.

    We have a few ideas we will be exploring after the rivers freeze and we get some snow. We have every intention of continuing the Susitna 100/50K in 2014.
