Come for one loop or come for twenty. Come solo or come with up to a team of four. Run or walk. The Loopet Loppet is the perfect chance at the end of the season to test how far you can go!
The Loopet Loppet gives you six or twelve hours to run as many loops as possible around a 5 mile loop on the new event trails near The Trailhead at Theodore Wirth Park on the edge of Minneapolis, MN. At the end of each loop a fully stocked ultramarathon aid station awaits.
Prizes will be given throughout the day to participants still on the course.
