Tuscobia Winter Ultra has sold out
Thanks to everyone that has registered for the 2014/15 Tuscobia Winter Ultra. As has become normal, the 35 and 75 mile races sold out quickly. A first for this year, though, is closing of the 150 mile registration. Our vision for Tuscobia is to create low key, tight-knit, event with an extended family celebration type of feel, and in that vein we have limited registration numbers in the past. Our “extended family” has grown over the years, and therefore so have our registrations, but we are now bumping up against the capacity limits of our DNR permit. For this reason we are closing registration for the 150 mile race. We will keep a waitlist, as we are doing for the 35 and 75 mile races, so feel free to email us if you want to be listed. Conversely, if you are registered and it turns out you won’t be able to make the event, please let us know. We will be sad not to see you, but you will be able to put a smile on someone else’s face by opening your spot.
The Tuscobia Winter Ultra is a run, bike or ski event held on the Tuscobia State Trail in Northern Wisconsin... in the middle of winter. Participants can compete in the 150-mile, 75-mile or 35-mile event.
