The Fairbanks run is scheduled to start at the University Police Department, 612 Yukon Drive, on the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus. Participant check-in is at 9:30 a.m.

The 2008 Torch Run continues a successful corporate-crimefighter-citizen partnership to benefit Special Olympics Alaska.

Additional local support was derived from a donation by the Farthest North Chapter of the Alaska Peace Officers' Association.
