And that's a wrap, folks.
Congratulations to all competitors.
Special thanks to the race directors, Ken and Jackie Krueger.
This race would not happen without the efforts of the dozens of
volunteers who spend many days in the great white north, many managing
their efforts on only a few hours sleep over the course of the race.
The sponsors also provide valuable support with product for racers and
money to defray costs. Of course, all remaining funds are donated to
the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Safe Families for Children -
Minnesota, and the International Falls Hunger Coalition.
Items of note:
156 competitors started this morning in International Falls, MN on their way to Fortune Bay Casino near Tower. Temperature was about 15 deg (F).
There are 85 bikers, 59 runners, 11 skiers, and 2 runners with kick sleds.

We would like to make a couple of announcements:
- This year's Spirit of the Arrowhead will be awarded to Mike Stattleman. Mike was nominated multiple times for going above and beyond to assist an injured racer. Mike is also a former Arrowhead A'trois winner. We had an anonymous racer sponsor this $100 award which Mike has chosen to donate to the Falls Hunger Coalition.
- Rachel Utecht wins the 2017 Shackleton Endurance Award for spending the most time on the trail. Rachel was an unsupported racer on foot. The award consists of a $100 donation to the charity of Rachel's choice - charitywater
- In addition to our major charities (Special Operations Warrior Foundation, MN Safe Families, and Falls Food Shelf) we will be making a $100 donation to the Semper Fi Fund on behalf of the Arrowhead Volunteers.
