Two Days Until The 5th Annual Togwotee Winter Classic!

The 5th Annual Togwotee Winter Classic is two days away!

REMINDER: Racers can choose between the 25-mile loop or the 35-mile loop and you may declare your distance the morning of the race. Do not let your pride get in the way of choosing wisely. The 25-mile can take a fit person six hours or more to complete if conditions are soft & slow.


It really doesn't matter what Mother Nature throws at us because the race will take place regardless!

GROOMING UPDATE: The nice folks at Togwotee Lodge have confirmed that the following trails will be groomed Friday night: CD (east and west), V, K and X. Obviously snow and wind after the grooming takes place will result in soft conditions.

I strongly recommend that you PRINT a copy of this map, stick it in a ziplock bag, and carry it with you during the race

  • Headlamp
  • Red Tail Light
  • Handlebar mounted light
  • Wind Shell
  • Extra balaclava or Buff
  • More calories than you think you will consume

IMPORTANT: There will be a brief pre-race meeting at 8:15 AM inside Togwotee Mountain Lodge's Fireside Room. This is the same room we gather in after the race.

Please spend a little time at the Togwotee Winter Classic Blog looking at previous race results as well as the map and route sheets. Don't hesitate to email me with questions.
