Loppet events will be held in Theodore Wirth Park

The lack of snow and unseasonably warm weather forecast for the week has prompted organizers of the 2012 City of Lakes Loppet festival to move all activities to Theodore Wirth Park.

The main race scheduled for Sunday was originally planned to end with a finish in the heart of Uptown near Calhoun Square. Now racers will do multiple laps around a 3.5K loop at Theodore Wirth. The Park Nicollet Luminary Loppet typically held on Lake of the Isles will now be a hiking activity Saturday evening.
