Broken Arrow + Western States Fantasy Prizes

Share the trail love:

It’s going to be a fun couple weeks in North American trail running with Broken Arrow and Western States coming up on consecutive weekends in Olympic Valley, CA. Some of the best athletes in the world will gather to test themselves over different distances and course types for what will surely produce dramatic racing.

As such, Freetrail invites you to a friendly competition of Fantasy Trail Running with an abundance of amazing prizes on the line for the best predictors. Before we get to it, there are two fun new details we want to clarify.

First, as most will know, Broken Arrow is a weekend long celebration of #TrailCulture with several high-octane race distances. The fantasy competition will not only reward the winners of the Vertical Kilometer (VK), the 46k, and the 23k contests, but also the aggregate winner with the most accurate combined predictions across all three races. Broken Arrow fantasy will recognize and reward one overall and three individual winners. To have a chance to win the big prize, you’ll want to play all three races! 

Second, a small differentiation between the Broken Arrow and Western States competitions. While participants will only pick 5-deep at the three Broken Arrow events, we will go 10-deep for Western States, in line with the mystique of securing a top-10 position at this legendary race.
