The 2015 Gold Discovery Run continued the 14 year string of a fun and safe event with wonderful, smoke-free weather on the "new" course. This year the race was dedicated to the late Jim Madonna, and the Daily News-Miner published a feature editorial on the event and Jim on Monday, July 27. Jim was both a running legend in Fairbanks, and a long term mining professor at UAF.
