In addition to the primary sponsors, these races would not be possible without the help of the many volunteers in the community and at the checkpoints in the surrounding villages.

Although the Nome - Golovin and Kotzebue Race continue to be organized as an early spring relief for the "Cabin Fever" developed by the region's residents during the long winter months, The growing interest and attendance of the race now also provides a unique opportunity for corporate sponsorship and participation.
