Registration Set To Open For TARCtic Frozen Yeti

The Trail Animals Running Club’s ultra popular mid-winter race, the TARCtic Frozen Yeti, will open for registration on Thursday, October 26 at 7 p.m.

The event features a 30-hour race and a 15-mile race that will take place overnight. The race is scheduled for February 3-4, 2024, with the following weekend being the scheduled backup in case of bad weather. It will be held at Hale Reservation in Westwood, Massachusetts.

Entry for the 30-hour race is $85, and entry for the 15-mile race – which begins at 8 p.m. at night – is $35.

The course will be roughly 15 miles, consisting of three different loops that are each roughly five miles in length. Each loop starts and finishes at Powissett Lodge.

For folks running the 30 hour race, at some point during the race (to be determined), organizers will begin sequentially shutting down and clearing loops.  So for the last few hours of the 30 hours runners will only be running on one loop. 

The course closes at 2 p.m. on Sunday. Runners in the 30-hour race must complete at least 30 miles to have a recorded finishers distance and receive a finisher’s item.

Given the unpredictability of holding a race in New England in early February, organizers say the final course will depend on what Mother Nature has in store in the days and weeks leading up to the race, and the course could ultimately end up being much shorter.
