the Backcountry Trail Patrol at Mountain Bike and Running Races
Across Minnesota and NW Wisconsin
Backcountry Trail Patrol has built an enviable reputation for
supporting silent sport events in Minnesota and Northwest
Wisconsin. The patrol has been part of the Chequamegon Fat Tire
Festival since 1996, and the prestigious Twin Cities Marathon
since 1999, as well as many other events.
The Backcountry Patrol,
and its predecessor, the North-Central Mountain Bike Patrol were
the first mountain bike riding medical response team in
Minnesota. All of the members are trained in a minimum of
Advanced First Aid and CPR, and most are Wilderness First
Responders, EMTs, paramedics and other emergency medical
professionals. In addition to their National Mountain Bike
Patrol training, patrollers receive special training in
slow-speed maneuvering, riding among the runners, scene safety
and rolling patient assessment skills.
Late summer and the fall
season are often referred to as "marathon season" in Minnesota,
and you will find the Backcountry Patrol at numerous running
events, including the Minnesota Monster Series Women Rock, the
Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon, the American Birkebeiner Trail
Marathon, and the MN Monster Series Monster Dash and Turkey
Trot. In addition, the patrol will again be part of the medical
support team at the 35th annual Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival in
Hayward and Cable, Wisconsin.

Mountain Biker's Backcountry First Aid Class at
For over 20 years, the Backcountry Trail Patrol has been
providing first aid and emergency medical care at the
Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival, the Twin Cities Marathon, MN
Monster Series races, the City of Lakes Loppet and many other events as
well as on mountain bike trails throughout the region. Now we
are bringing that training to you! The more people who know what
to do in the event of an emergency the better prepared we all
are. The Patrol and Emergicare Medical Training can bring these
lifesaving skills to your location, before or after an event, or
in a workshop setting. Thanks to our supporters, the cost is
very reasonable and includes training, certification and
textbooks. For more information email
