2021 Raffle Prize Winners!

Run: the lucky winner of the trail running vacation with Adventure Running Co. is Scott Rokis, who completed the 80 mile run this weekend!

Bike: in our “must be present to win” we had to draw a second time… (Tim!!!) and Elena Haynes (80 mile bike) goes home with a hub set from Onyx Racing Products!

Ski: this year we had more skiers than ever sign up for the event but it’s still the smallest category so chances are good! Oliver Hansen (160 mile ski) wins a full ski package from Out There: Nordic Sports!

2021 Partners

We have a lot of returning partners this year and some great new ones too! Check out these folks both locally and all over the Upper Midwest, and be sure to thank them for their support.

Out There: Nordic Sports:  local to Rice Lake, Bjorn & Kris have supported the event for many years and this year will again be providing the Ski podium awards and together we provide the Ski raffle prize (a full ski package).

TC Running Company: Kurt and the team at TCRC in the Twin Cities continue to support the event with the Run podium awards.

Adventure Running Company: For the Run raffle prize, Kim & Andy (Duluth) will take one lucky runner on a trail running adventure of a lifetime!

Onyx Racing Products: The team at Onyx (St. Augusta, MN) are again providing a beautiful hub set for the Bike raffle prize (the ‘token’ hub that you’ll receive at the raffle is almost as beautiful as the real thing!).

Boeshield T-9: A bike’s “best friend”, John (Holland, MI) is providing product for everyone to keep your bike in working order and will be out there sharing the trail with you.

PSI/Vanicream: While Boeshield keeps your bike working, Vanicream will do the same for your body parts! Joe (Rochester, MN) is providing product for everyone. Speaking from experience, you will want to have this in your kit.

Empire Wool & Canvas: Again this year, Kevin (Duluth, MN) is donating one of his beautiful pieces to the raffle.

Off the Deck Hot Sauce: Jeremiah and Rachel (Fargo, ND) – both winter endurance athletes themselves – craft small batch hot sauces, sourcing from local farmers. Look for podium & raffle prizes – and say Hi to Jeremiah on the bike this weekend!

Embark Good Energy: Bree & Eric (Viroqua, WI) are the team behind this venture harvesting WI maple syrup to create goodness for the trail (and pretty much any other time). In addition to providing sampler packs for everyone (!) check out their “Good Energy Award” here. Nominate a worthy fellow adventurer this weekend.

Again this year, Rice Lake Tourism has kindly shared the cost of providing $10 Chamber Bucks to all participants. These can be spent in businesses all over Rice Lake.

Tuscobia 2021 – Update for Registered Participants

Thank you for registering for this year’s event! After working with our local partners, including the DNR, over the past few months, we are ready to move forward with full confirmation of the event and collect the balance of payment.

You should have already received an email from us via UltraSignup requesting you to pay the balance ($65 for the 80-mile, $125 for the 160-mile). Registration will close by Oct 31st so make sure you complete the payment by then. We will then open the event to those on the Waitlist.

If you didn’t get the email, contact us at tuscobia@gmail.com

Please be aware that we are still finalizing the specifics of our checkpoints. Given the Covid situation, we want to re-iterate that it is possible that both the Ojibwa and Park Falls checkpoints will be outdoors only and providing water only. So make sure you plan for this as you prepare for the event.

All entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. Please don’t ask.

Registration Opens August 1st!!

Registration will open at 8am central tomorrow August 1st on UltraSignup.

All entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. Please don’t ask.

Due to the uncertainties around Covid, we do not want to charge the full amount for the event right away, in case we cannot make it happen. However, we do have expenses regardless of whether the event happens every year. Therefore, when you register, you will be charged a non-refundable $35 fee to hold your spot.

  • Early registration fees (by October 31st) are $100 for 80 mile, $160 for 160 mile
  • Late registration fees (after Nov 1st) are $150 for 80 mile and $210 for 160 mile

Once we are fully confident of holding the event, you will be asked to pay the balance.

You can be sure we are doing everything we can to make this event happen in 2021!!

Registration details and qualification requirements (160-mile) are here.
