COVID statement: We believe that COVID is real. We will strive to race in the safest possible way we know how. We will comply with any local & Hale Reservation restrictions / guidelines applicable at race time. In an effort to mitigate transmission, we are changing our race style this year to a 100% outdoor event & will be limiting race venue access to runners and volunteers only. No shuttles. NO crew, pacers, or spectators are allowed for this 2022 event. 

TARCtic Frozen Yeti Trail Races

30Hour Ultra race starts Sat Jan29,2022 @8AM (ALL DAY/NIGHT)

Note before you register: All TARC races maintain a NO REFUND policy. There will be NO refunds, deferrals or bib switches for ANY reason. 


For 2022: THERE WILL BE NO INDOOR ACCESS FOR THE RACE (except for emergency/safety situations). There will be ONE centrally located OUTDOOR aid station with food, water, portopotties and your OUTDOOR drop bag. 



For 2022, NO pacers, crew, or spectators will be allowed. We really mean this! 


A required gear list for BOTH races will be finalized as we get closer to race date but will most likely include common basic cold weather race requirements like: clothing sufficient to cover exposed skin, 2 pairs of gloves, 2 hats, midweight warm layer, waterproof shell, hand & foot heaters, 2 emergency blanket, whistle, headlamp, front & rear red blinking lights etc. In the event of extremely cold weather predictions, the decision to implement an “Extreme Cold Weather Required Gear List” will be announced within 36 hours of the event, which might include: full change of clothes (pants/long sleeve insulated top/socks), emergency bivy, sleeping bag rated 15F or below, etc. YOUR GEAR WILL BE CHECKED AT CHECK-IN AND YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO RUN IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE REQUIRED GEAR.


GPX file of the course is available HERE.

There are two categories to choose from, “Ultra 30 Hour” or “15 mile.”

In the “Ultra” category, you will have 30 hours to run the 15 mile tri-lobe ( 3 separate 5mile loops, like a cloverleaf)  course as many times as you want, 30Miles to 100+miles. Minimum distance for the Ultra category is 30 Miles to count as a finish, but the completion of any additional ~5 mile loop will count towards accumulated mileage. The Ultra race starts SATURDAY MORNING at 8AM.

For those who want to join in the fun for a single time around the course, we offer a “15 mile” race. New for 2022, the 15 Mile race will be a NIGHT RACE & start at 8PM on SATURDAY JAN 29.

100 Mile finishers will be able to purchase a TARC100 buckle to commemorate their achievement for $55 (please bring cash).

Tshirts or other clothing items will be available to prepurchase very soon.
