Loppet Winter Festival endures with COVID-19 adaptations

Many of the races will also offer both a hybrid and fully virtual option that allows people to watch from their homes. No spectators are allowed in the start or finish areas this year, aside from a few exceptions.

Organizers say ensuring people’s safety during the pandemic was at the forefront.

“It was a challenge to come up with a new way to do it, but it was the best kind of challenge,” said Claire Wilson, the Loppet Foundation’s executive director. “More than ever people are discovering the outdoors. They want to be in snow. This is Minnesota. We celebrate winter. So today everybody has been just so grateful that we were able to put the event on.”

The Loppet Winter Festival continues on Sunday and will start up again next Saturday, Feb. 6.
