David Heitkamp was one of five people to attempt the Arrowhead race on foot in 2006.
Unfortunately, the race officials made a difficult decision to stop a few people from leaving late from the MelGeorge checkpoint, after which there are few points to bail out safely. There was not enough time left before the finish cutoff to traverse the difficult, hilly second half of the course. Next year, we hope to have more volunteers on snowmobile to ensure the safety of racers testing their limits near the cutoff time.
David looked strong at the checkpoint and he made a great effort!!
