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 run/walk!
The Loopet Loppet gives you 6 or 12 hours to run as many loops as possible around a 5-mile loop on the singletrack 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.
7 a.m. – 7 p.m.

A full ultramarathon aid station will be available between loops along with drop bag storage. A self-serve water/energy drink only aid station will be available at mile 3 of the 5 mile loop.
