McDonald’s Twilight Nights Race Series

If you are into Nordic, snow shoeing, or fat biking, you will want to be a part of this exciting new series of races coming to Purgatory Resort.  It’s the Twilight Nights series, presented by our friends at McDonald’s and organized by the Durango Nordic Center.

Headlamps required!


Twilight Nights is not your typical Wednesday night out.  Set at the base of Purgatory Resort, this short track race series is for nordic skiers, fat bikers, and snowshoers to battle it out in the dark, up and down punishing terrain and around quick turns while being cheered on by gapers at Purgy’s.

The races will be held on four consecutive Wednesday nights.  The final race in the series, on the opening night of Snowdown, will be a special “triathlon” format.  Sign up as an individual, or throw your name in a hat to be matched up with teammates.

Race dates:  Jan 11  |  Jan 18  |  Jan 25  |  Feb 1

Just $10 per race.  Do just one, or do them all.   We will tally points throughout the series, and there will be prizes for individual race winners and series points winners.  We’ll also have plenty of giveaways at each race.

Registration:  5 – 5:45pm in Hoody’s.

Race:  6pm

Post-race festivities:  Drinks, prizes, and good times in Purgy’s right after the races.
