About This Activity

The rugged topography of the Driftless Area makes the land here at Justin Trails Resort perfect for our Winter Race. This family-friendly event is meant to be enjoyed by all fitness levels and ages. Participants can challenge themselves, have fun and enjoy the beauty of our trails as they meander through woodland and meadows.

Justin Trails has been in the snow business for 28 years and is excited to host this day-long event consisting of fatbike, archery and snowshoeing. Cost: $35 Adults / Under 18 Free.

Three separate events:

1. Fatbike - One mile course through meadows and woodland areas with moderately difficult hills. Ten laps for a total of 10 miles. Fatbikes will be available by reservation at no charge to participants prior to the race. Contact Dawn 608.397.9708 to reserve your fatbike.

2. Archery - 5K biathlon of snowshoeing and archery through meadows and woodland with moderately difficult hills.

3. Snowshoe - 2K snowshoe at-your-own-pace loop through an open meadow. Easy course with moderately difficult hills.

*The course is groomed each snowfall, sometimes more often, for a hard packed surface.

A large indoor warm-up area in our Elegant Barn includes warm indoor restrooms located close to the race course. Snacks and beverages will be available from 11:00 - 3:00.
