Outhouse Races


Come one, come all and sign up for the first annual Outhouse Race to be held on Sunday, January 16, 2016 at Chapman State Park. This is a new event to help raise funds to help keep the Winterfest a free festival.

Two divisions: traditional & ladies of the throne. Prizes for the first and second places will be awarded in each division. Trophies will be awarded to the Grand Champion, Peoples Choice, and the Red Lantern.

All outhouses may be built of any material that produces a structurally sound building mounted on cross-country skis. Any outhouse deemed unsafe or unsound by the race committee will not be allowed to compete.  Safety is paramount.

The race course is a one lane course located on the bottom of the sledding hill. Two teams will be competing against each other and will be timed. The grand champion and other winners will be decided by time trials. Sign up and challenge other teams you want to race.

Sign up:  please sign up by January 13th, 2016. Either use our download form or call (814) 726-1441 to ask for a registration form to be mailed to your team.

Rules:  teams will compete within their own division. The winner from each division will race at the end against winners from other divisions for the Grand Championship. Red Lantern will be awarded for the slowest time recorded, and Peoples Choice, by ballot vote.

Everyone must sign a liability waiver form to participate in the Outhouse Race. These will be available at the registration table located in the Big Tent. Pre-registration  appreciated. No waiver, no race!
