JAYP’S BACKYARD FAT PURSUIT 2021

January 8, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

JayP’s Backyard Fat Pursuit is a 60km or 200km bike race on a network of groomed snowmobile trails. Groomed is relative.

In 2021 we are offering ALL NEW RACE COURSES. Those courses are being finalized and information and maps will be released later this fall.

​A 60km or 200km human-powered winter race on a network of groomed snowmobile trails. 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 200km distance course will not be marked and you will need to navigate by GPS or map and compass. The 60km 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.

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 60km or 200km distance, although past winter travel experience is strongly recommended.

Please understand that temperatures of 20 below are not uncommon. The snowfall average at 6300′, your low point, is over 200″ and over 300″ at your high point of 8300′. Snow is guaranteed!
