The Air Race Classic (ARC), the all-women cross-country airplane race, will be coming to

Fairmont on Wednesday, June 19 and Thursday, June 20. Forty-nine airplanes will execute high-speed

flybys over a timing line at Fairmont Municipal Airport as teams race the clock on their way from

Jackson, Tennessee, to Welland, Ontario.

 

This year’s course covers 2,538 miles. The 109 racers have four days to complete the course, which will

start in Jackson at 8 a.m. June 18 and end in Welland at 5 p.m. June 21.

After flying the timing line, racers may land to fuel up and eat, then will fly the timing line again as they

depart for the next stop, Wausau, Wisconsin. Some teams may spend the night in Fairmont.

 

Reporters and photographers can see the planes cross the timing line and meet the racers after they

land.
