Loppet Foundation events are designed to highlight the many outdoor opportunities that can be found right in Minneapolis. How many big cities come with a 42 kilometer ski trail system? How many can host a paddle – trail run – mountain bike triathlon and a half-marathon or point-to-point run on trails? Over 15,000 participants and volunteers take part in all four events: the City of Lakes Loppet, City Trail Loppet, UCare Tri-Loppet, and Surly Brewing Co. Trail Loppet.
