Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - A certain type of bragging rights will be up for grabs this weekend.

The first ever Fat Versus Skinny Race is set for Saturday, January 11 at the Boulder Lake recreation area.

The race pairs cross country skiers (skinny skis) against mountain bikers (fat bikes) to see who is the fastest.

Entrants have the option to choose whether they will race on skis or bike.

Organizers say this is the first race of its kind.

You can register for the race or sign up to volunteer here.
