The wildly popular annual Nome-Golovin Snowmachine Race attracts a large slate of competitors from throughout Western Alaska for a furiously fast run from Nome’s sea ice to the neighboring village of Golovin and back.
The 2018 champion, Jarvis Miller of Nome, made the 190-mile round trip in only 2 hours 8 minutes. His average speed was 89 MPH!
The speeds and intensity of Nome-Golovin make for frantic few hours. KNOM broadcasts minute-by-minute details to listeners. Kotzebue radio station KOTZ simulcasts KNOM’s coverage well north of the Arctic Circle.
