#Mountain Monday July 10, 2017

Pagesculptor Studios has taken on the awesome job of co-directing the 52nd Annual Gold Discovery Run. Felix Pedro struck gold on July 22, 1902, in a creek 12 miles north of E. T. Barnette’s Trading Post. In 1965 the Gold Discovery Run was inaugurated to commemorate his discovery, which led to gold fever and the founding of Fairbanks. Sunday, July 23, 2017 will mark the 52nd Annual running of this unique event, which is part of the Usibelli Running Series.  The race is 16.3 miles starting at Cleary Summit crossing trails and road before ending at Silver Gulch Brewery.

Following that is a regular board meeting of the Fairbanks Cycle Club.  As a triathlete, studio owner Rachael Kvapil has taken on the role of President of FCC for the second year in a row. She believes in contributing to the health of the community through mental, emotional, and physical activity and works with organizations who do the same.

How is your Monday shaping up?
