Trail Loppet Age Gap Relays

Awards are given to the top three teams within gender and age categories based on the gender and birth date of the child. All participants will be called up for a picture at the awards ceremony. Ribbons for the top three teams in the U10, U12, U14, and U16 age categories. Everyone in the U8 category receives a participation ribbon.

For those not present at the Awards Ceremony, awards will be kept for one month at The Loppet Foundation office – 1301 Theodore Wirth Parkway. Awards may be picked up there – contact us in advance to arrange a time: 612 604-5330 or afful@loppet.org.

Surly-est Runner Contest

Did you get bumped around a bit on the trail? Or really roughed up? Let us be the judge. The one we deem most scratched, scraped and scrubby will be crowned the Surly-est Runner, rewarded with bragging rights and door prizes!

Contest Info:

Timing: The contest will take place immediately after the awards ceremony. You must be present to win.

What to do: Come to the Surly tent to get your name on the “Most Messed Up” list before awards start.

What counts: Anything goes! We take scrapes, blood, sprains, lacerations and breaks (though, really, we hope it doesn’t come to this).

Bottom line: The worse off you are the better your chances of winning. Cheating is unacceptable.
