City of Lakes Loppet Winter Festival
Please read carefully- there are several changes and special commemorations for 2022- the 20th Anniversary of the Loppet Festival.
In commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of the City of Lakes Loppet Festival in 2022, we will be giving out special finisher/participation medals to everyone who takes part in one or more of the events, with the exception of the Classic and Skate Ski Marathoners who have completed 2 or more marathons. Participants in the Classic and Skate Ski Marathons who have completed 2 or more City of Lakes Loppet Marathons will receive a special 20th Anniversary, 2022 Year Pin at the finish line. This takes the place of the former “year pins” we have given out in the past. The medals and pins will be distributed at the Finish Line or the event information table depending on the event type.
If you have any questions or missed getting your medal or pin, please visit the Awards Booth inside The Trailhead.
