The Winona Forest Recreation Association (WFRA) is a non-profit organization that maintains and grooms Winona State Forest trails on the Tug Hill Plateau near Mannsville, N.Y. On Saturday, March 3 and Sunday, March 4, 2018, these trails will be the site of a 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. The IditaFAT and the SnoFatShu are two of the most unique races in the world! For more information about the SnoFatShu please click HERE. With single digit temperatures at the starting line last year, participants from around the country still came to compete in the IditaFAT, making it one of the biggest winter fat bike races on the East Coast. The IditaFAT truly distinguishes itself from other races, 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 such as an actual fat bike groomer. Winona Forest Recreation Association is the only organization in the area that has a fat bike groomer. This is truly a Fat bike event and tires less than 3.5 will not be allowed! The IditaFAT offers distances of 12k or 25k “ish” or 50k "ish" making it one of the longest races in the country with a Le Mans start. The 25k and 50k courses are designed for the more experienced cyclists while the 12k course is designed with everyone in mind. The course will be on ski trail widths of 6 to 10 feet and we are working hard to add single track into the course this year. Under the best conditions the hills are ride-able but as with any event conditions are subject to change. For all three races, the top 3 male and females will be recognized and awarded on our homemade podium which has become an IditaFAT tradition. The top male and female finisher for the 50k gets their numbers decorated the following year. All proceeds from the IditaFAT will be donated to the Winona Forest Recreation Association to help maintain the grooming machinery as well as the management of the trails.
