Participation was up to 800 people. 1984 runner-up Ron Gilooly finished with a time of 29:48. Outside runner Nancy Ditz was the first woman finisher with a time of 34:06. Surprisingly, the News-Miner did not publish any results beyond the Top Three Finishers, an action that spurred a letter to the editor asking to have all results printed. Since then the News-Miner has not only printed the entire results of the Midnight Sun Run, but also the results for every other running race held in Fairbanks throughout the year, a rarity for a local newspaper.
