Race Logistics

CityTrail is a point-to-point race, so it pays to plan out your race day.

Recommended Routine:

  1. Review the race day schedule.
  2. Pick up your race packet (bib + bag tag) from the Theodore Wirth Trailhead on Friday or Saturday.
  3. Pin your bib to your race clothing.
  4. Pack clothes you would like to wear after the race into a small gear bag (marked with your bag tag), and bring it with you.
  5. Head to the finish area near the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.
    • Biking, busing, and walking is preferred. If you bike you can leave your bike in a secured bike corral and you’ll be entered in a drawing for a Loppet + Surly swag bag.
    • If you drive, park at Parade Stadium with overflow in the Dunwoody lot.
  6. Take the shuttle bus from Parade Stadium to the start area at least one hour prior to your race. Shuttle buses will run beginning at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday.
  7. Arrive in downtown Robbinsdale and get warmed up.
  8. Leave your gear bag at our bag drop. It will be brought to the finish line.
  9. Have a great race, then enjoy live music, excellent food, and great refreshments at the end.
