The Tuscobia 160 race (run, bike, or ski) is a qualifying event for the Iditarod Trail Invitational. Please visit the ITI website for more information on how to apply for their legendary event. http://iditarodtrailinvitational.com/index.php
The 2017 Tuscobia Winter Ultra will award one guaranteed ITI entry for the 2018 race to a 160 mile finisher. ITI entries are hard to get, and cost $1,400 so this is a pretty big deal!
How the ITI entry will be awarded:
Male and Female winners from each discipline (run, bike, ski) in the 160 mile event will have the opportunity to be entered into a drawing for the ITI entry.
Only winners that have a probable chance of actually using the entry will be included in the drawing. If you know that you are unlikely to use the entry, we ask that you exclude yourself from the drawing, giving others the chance to use the entry.
The 160 mile distance must be completed and you must be given an official finish.
Any questions? Let us know.
