Fallon was born and raised in Kotzebue. She is the daughter of Mark and
Marcy Fairbanks, and spent many years of her childhood at her mother’s
side volunteering with the Kobuk 440 Racing Association. Her uncle, John
Baker, has been a long time participant of the Kobuk 440 and Fallon has
always enjoyed helping their family prepare for the various races her
uncle would run. As an adult, Fallon still enjoys getting out on the
Kobuk 440 trail on snowmachine each year and getting a chance to visit
her family and friends.
