Arrowhead Ultra - Minnesota

Registration still available for the Groundhog's Day Weekend event. The fastest bike finisher completed the 135 mile trek last year in 21 hours. I'm pretty sure he was riding a Pugsley.

Arrowhead Ultra:

Of 59 starters, 24 finished the Arrowhead in under 60 hours and 1 was disqualified for getting lost and taking a car ride back to the trail.
  • 26 bikers started, 15 finished.
  • 26 on foot, 8 finished
  • 7 skiers, 1 finished.

Completing the course is no small feat as winter temperatures in this area of Minnesota have been known to reach a record -60F degrees. No wonder the locals have dubbed their town the "Icebox of the Nation" and "Frostbite Falls".
