Loppet Foundation

Shuttle Bus & Bag Drop

CityTrail logistics are designed for racers to bike/bus/drive/walk to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden finish area, then take a shuttle to the Downtown Robbinsdale start, then run back to the finish.

Shuttle Bus

Shuttle buses run from the Parade Stadium Parking Lot (near the finish) to the start line from 7 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. Please plan at least an hour to get from shuttle pick up to the start line.

There are no shuttle buses from the finish back to the start after the race.


Those who drive to the race should park in the paid parking will be available in the Parade Stadium Parking Lot, then take the shuttle to start line. Additional (free) overflow parking is available at the Dunwoody College of Technology.


If you can, use alternative transportation to get to and from the event. Just bus, bike or walk to the Parade Stadium Parking Lot (near the finish) and take the shuttle to the start. Bikers will be entered in a drawing for a sweet Loppet + Surly Brewing swag bag to be awarded at the Awards Ceremony.

Bag Drop

You’ll receive a bag tag at packet pick-up. Bring that tag to mark your gear bag. You can drop their bag in the finish area before taking the shuttle to the start or take your bag to the start and drop their bag before the start. Bags dropped at the start area will be transported to the finish area.
