Fat Pursuit Fat Tire Bike Event

January 12 - January 14

The Fat Pursuit is a 60k or 200k human-powered winter race on a network of groomed snowmobile trails in Island Park, Idaho. Groomed is relative. This is a backcountry event that will require some experience and winter survival skills. You will be challenged, humbled and rewarded in many different ways. The 200k distance course will not be marked and you will need to navigate by GPS or map and compass. The 60k will be well marked. If you can read a map you will have no problem following the route. You will need to be self-sufficient and carry all your own gear, food, and water, although there will be checkpoints and aid stations.

The race HQ and start/finish will be at Sawtelle Mountain Resort. 200k racers will tackle the highlight of the route early in the race: Two Top is in the first 30 miles, so you can catch the climb in daylight, in good conditions, when you’re fresh. This event was created to help people gain experience and learn about backcountry winter travel. We feel everyone needs that chance and we do not require a resume of races to do the 60k or 200k distance, although past winter travel experience is strongly recommended.
