2014 Togwotee Winter Classic Race Updates

3/7/14 Update:
Please print the Togwotee Winter Classic Cue Sheet & Map and carry it with you during the race.

2/28/14 Update:
Are you ready for the 2014 Togwotee Winter Classic? We are a little over a week away from this year's event and we will have our largest field ever.  As of today, we have 69 racers signed up and five spots remain available.

I hope your training is going well.

Being a self-supported, no entry fee event, we try to keep things pretty simple on race day. The emphasis is on FUN & SAFETY.

You are responsible for You!  I would strongly recommend using a front & rear blinking light on your bike during the race. Also, if you plan to race the 35-mile loop, and conditions are soft & slow, you should pack a headlamp/handlebar light that is suitable for night riding.  Carry enough food & water to last the duration. There are no aid stations or resupply points on the course. Carry everything you need from the start.  Lastly, please yield to all snowmobile traffic at all times.

Over the years, we have seen conditions vary from "Cold, Firm, & Fast" to "Snowy, Soft, and Slow". Be prepared for anything.

Where am I going?
The upper right portion of this page contains a section called "Race Information". You can find maps & GPS files there. The course is NOT marked for the race. However, most intersections are marked with the trail names.

Race Day
8:15am - Voluntary Pre-Race Meeting in the Fireside Room, Togwotee Lodge
9:00am - START, across the highway from Togwotee Lodge
12 - 5pm - No host Food & Beverages in the Fireside Room
3pm (Or when the majority of racers have finished) - Awards & Raffle. Trust me, you will want to stick around for this.

Togwotee Mountain Lodge is a great place to stay the night before the Togwotee Winter Classic. You can call Central Reservations at 866-278-4245 or you can book online.
