The Winona Forest Recreation Association (WFRA) is a non-profit organization that maintains and grooms Winona State Forest trails. WFRA is excited to announce that on Saturday, March 3 and Sunday, March 4, 2018, these trails will be the site of a winter festival that features both our annual IditaFAT bike race and the annual SnoFatShu race, offering winter enthusiasts and families an unparalleled opportunity to compete in a weekend of fat biking and snowshoe running.
We have extended the IditaFAT to a 50-60k “ish” this year depending on the conditions. Please note: We are asking a lot of our volunteers to stand out in the cold, so when you sign up for the long course one of the race directors will be in contact with you to make sure you have the ability to finish the race within the cut-off time. As race directors, we reserve the right to move any 50-60k participant to the 25k race if we feel he or she would not be able to finish the 50-60k race.

As for the SnoFatShu, you may register at: https://www.trireg.com/winonas-snofatshu-duathlon
We are in dire need of volunteers this year. We are looking for course marshals and individuals to work registration. If you know of anyone that would like to volunteer, please have them contact me.
There are still sponsorship opportunities available for this race. If you know of any businesses that would like to attach their name to this awesome event, please feel free to contact me.
Tailwater is booking up fast; hurry and make your reservations today.

I just wanted to let everyone know that we are organizing a group ride this Saturday (January 30th) at 9am from CCC Camp on Rt. 90 right were we hold the IditaFAT Bike Race. Please invite anyone who might be ambivalent about registering for the race. Riders of all levels are welcome. We won’t leave anyone behind.
As a side note Winona Forest truly distinguishes itself from others, as Winona’s experienced crew of volunteer groomers, many of whom are fat bikers themselves, maintain the trails multiple times a week, using a diverse arsenal of equipment. They understand the beauty of riding well groomed snow and have our interests in mind! Please contact me if you have any questions. We hope to see you Saturday morning.
Please help spread the word by telling your family, friends and co-workers about the IditaFAT Bike Race!! Thank you everyone!
