Race # 4 - Mount Wirth Loppet - June 24, 2018

Theodore Wirth Race

Theodore Wirth - Sunday, June 24th 2018

Race Description

The newest race in MN! Bringing MTB racing right into the heart of the cities! This race will be on the *new* trail system starting by the old "Par 3 Club" lot where the new full facility chalet (with ski and bike rentals) is being built. Just to clarify, this course will not be on the MORC/MOCA trail system. This new system has great single track (with more being made!), plenty of areas for passing, and a surprising amount of climbing and switchbacks! This course definitely has it's own flavor and and sure to be a lot fun! Thanks to the Loppet Foundation for putting this race together for 2018.  Please check out the Loppet Foundation and all the great events and programs they offer.
