    The 26th annual
    Loop de Loop
    14-Mile Trail Race
    Sunday, April 1, 2018
    A foolishly challenging double loop up and down Annadel State Park trails.  Run the loop one direction, then the other.

    Participants receive head starts based on age and gender.

    First wave starts at 7:45 AM.  The last wave (scratch runners) starts at 8:30 AM.


    Consult the Loop de Loop Handicap Headstart Table to find your start time.

    TIME LIMIT WARNING
    This event ends at 11:30 am after which no one will be timed or entered into the results and monitors will leave the course.  Please do not attempt this event if you are not confident you can finish within the time limit.

    Loop de Loop Do-Si-Do Relay

    (Relay starts at 8:40 AM.)

    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+).
