West Yellowstone, Montana - The 2017 Yellowstone Rendezvous Race will once again be part of the American Ski Marathon Series - North America's longest-running and largest citizen's racing and touring series - that highlights long distance ski events throughout the country. There will be an Elite group start for the 25k and 50k for Wave 1.  To qualify for this group, the skier must have a Top 30 finish in any 2015/16 or 2016/17 ASMS race. Skier must provide proof of qualifying place at time of registration.

The race will be limited to the first one thousand participants registered. Registration needs to be received by March 2, 2017. Discounted pricing available through Feb. 23. The entry fee includes participation in the race, bail-out shuttles along the course, aid stations, finish area food and refreshments as well as race souvenirs and promotional materials. The entry fee also includes admission to the Awards Ceremony and dessert to be held at the West Yellowstone Holiday Inn.

There are six different races to choose from depending on your age and ability:  2K, 5K, 10K, 25K classic, 25K and 50K. The six races are run concurrently and skiers of all ages and abilities participate every year.

The Rendezvous Race is the culmination of cross country ski racing in our region and, as the name implies, it is a reunion of old timers and new comers alike who have trained and skied on our trail system for years or who are skiing here for the first time.  Run on the beautifully groomed, rolling terrain of the Rendezvous Ski Trails, there is no better way to celebrate the end of the winter season than to ski in the Yellowstone Rendezvous Race!
