Part of the American Ski Marathon Series
The City of Lakes Loppet Festival is a multi-day celebration of cross-country skiing and winter fun for the whole family! The Minne Tour is for the big dogs seeking to take their share of the $6,000 purse. The Minne Tour connects the Skate Ski Sprints, the Classic Ski Loppet, and the Skate Ski Loppet in one grueling weekend of skiing.
Most of this festival events will be centered in Theodore Wirth Regional Park.
Starting with the 2019 City of Lakes Loppet Festival, all point-to-point events will begin at the Chain of Lakes in Uptown and finish at The Trailhead in Theodore Wirth Regional Park. Additionally, events like the Minne-Loppet and Junior Loppet will be based out of Wirth Park as well providing a challenging and fun course for athletes of all ages!
