Frozen Otter

Cautionary Frozen Otter Tale

Share

Last year middle of the night windchill was below -20F, but that's my kind of temp, been through worse in the FO before, and after passing through the 40mi. checkpoint I was just cruising along well ahead of schedule. About 3mi out suddenly I started getting light headed, stumbling, and all I could do was try to convince myself not to lie down directly in the snow cause' I knew I would just freeze to death.

Frozen Otter Live Tracking

Share

In past years, we have attempted to keep standings up to date online for friends and family to track their racer. This has been replaced with an option for GPS tracking as an additional option when registering. The previous method was extremely taxing on the volunteers and race staff and resulted in a great deal of confusion and concern from those watching it. With the GPS tracking, participants that opt-in will carry a GPS transmitter that will update their location on a map of the forest in near real time.

2015 Frozen Otter Results

Veteran racers JP Bordeleau and Brian Pfister took an early lead coming in first to Butler Lake, but they were overtaken before Greenbush by Marty Taylor and were soon chasing the lead along with David Haase.  Matt Hanson mistakingly took a wrong turn and ended up at Parnell Tower adding a cool 1.5 miles to his day and a lot of catching up to be had.  By Hwy P it looked like David Haase had taken over 2nd place followed by JP, Brian, and Matt who was making up some great time.
