Outhouse Races - Next Race is: January 16, 2016

Check Out the Past Races!

For a quarter of a century outhouse racing has taken place annually in Conconully. The event features head-to-head races within stated divisions with champions being crowned by the day's end. The race course is a snow-covered Main Street. Each entered outhouse may participate in as many divisions as its sponsor can find teams to race. Questions? Call the Chamber of Commerce at 826-9050 or 1-877-826-9050.

Decisions of Officials are final

We RACE with or without snow falling. 2014 we brought in snow and will do so again if nature decides to hold off. We are looking forward to another fun filled event this coming January 16, 2016. See you all there as sitters, pushers or spectators. A great day for young and young at heart.
