Registration & Race Start

Registration begins at 7 am on Saturday. Registration closes at 8:45 am. All racers must check in at the registration desk located in the Lincoln Park warming house. Please have your waiver printed and signed upon arrival.  NO WAIVERS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE RACE! If you don't bring a signed waiver, you will not be able to participate. Click here to download and print waiver. Race announcements will begin at 8:45 am with starting gun sounding at 9 am.

Once checked in, proceed to race transition area (large white tent). If you have pre-rented ski's, pick them up at the rental area in the transition tent. Bring a photo ID.

SOLO RACERS: Stage bike, skis, and running gear in transition area.  Only stage what you need; space is limited.  TEAMS: Stage bikes outside transition area to the west (look for sign). Skis can be staged in transition area. Teams will receive only 1 race number. Teams must determine their own way to transfer their race number to their next racer. Numbers can only be transfered in transition area and must be visible at all times during the entire race. A popular method used in the past... pin # to a shirt and simply transfer shirt to next racer.

There will be a staggered start. Solo racers will start 1 minute before team racers. The start involves a short run to the transition area to put on skis (we recomend running in your ski boots).

Race Finish

Once you have finished the race and your time has been recorded, make your way to delicious race snacks in the transition tent courtesy of Dakota Harvest Bakers. Race award ceremony will take place at Noon just outside the transition area. All racers must be present to accept their award. After award ceremony, all racers are eligible for prizes.  We have many, many awesome prizes so stick around to win some great stuff from our sponsors.

Course closes at 1:30 pm. Any racers remaining on the course at that time will be brought in via snowmobile.

Race Logistics

Ski Course: There will be multiple ski tracks. Please stay on the right track unless you are passing another racer. Some course areas are thin and slightly icy. Use caution.

Bike Course: Helmets must be worn and buckled at all times. Bike paths will be cleared, but again, use caution and watch for ice patches.

Sled Course: Each solo and team must complete the final sled portion of the race following the run. Solo and team racers will make 3 sled trips down the hill and back up. Teams must send two racers down on a sled at each time so that each racer completes two trips down the hill. Final time will stop once the third sled trip down the hill is made and entire team crosses the finish line. YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN SLED!

Each leg of the course is marked with colored flags. From every point on the course you will be able to see the next flag. Follow the flags and you won't get lost. Maps are also available at the registration desk. Any team cutting the course will be disqualified. Race safety volunteers will be stationed throughout the race course and snowmobiles will be continually driving the course. If you get lost or injured, waive down a safety volunteer or snowmobile and they can transport you back to the transition area.

The Iceman is not a closed course. There may be community members utilizing the Greenway for recreation on Saturday as well. Watch for other skiers, bikers, runners, sledders, and snowmobilers throughout the race and be courteous.

Each leg of the race will be timed. Times and current race placings will be available for viewing in the warming house shortly after completion of each leg.
