    Loop de Loop
    14-Mile Trail Race

    The 3rd annual
    Loop de Loop Do-Si-Do Relay
    Sunday, April 1, 2018, 8:40 am
      Runs concurrently with the
    Loop de Loop 14-mile trail race.

    How it works:

    Both teammates start at the same time heading in opposite directions on the infamously challenging 7-mile Annadel loop. They meet somewhere near the middle of the loop, do-si-do, and then run back in the direction from which they came. Teams finish when both runners, coming from opposite directions, have crossed the finish line.  Combined they run 14 miles.  Individually? 

    Awards:
    Priceless recognition presented to the first place Open, Masters, and Senior teams in Men's, Women's, and Mixed gender divisions. Age group categories are based on the combined age of both teammates: Open (<80), Masters (80-99), Senior (100+).
