Beat Beethoven 5Km

Fairbanks Symphony Orchestra Beat Beethoven 5Km

The Beat Beethoven 5Km is the unofficial kickoff to the road racing season in the Interior.  Beat Beethoven has grown to be one of the two biggest 5Km races in the Interior.  The race takes place on the UAF campus and is a fundraiser for the Fairbanks Symphony Orchestra.  Beethoven’s 5th Symphony is played on speakers around the course.  All those in the race who finish before the final note of the symphony (i.e. those who “beat” Beethoven) receive a pass to a Fairbanks Symphony Orchestra concert.
