Salomon City Trail Loppet​ 10K​

Looonnnggggg overdue race recap, so here’s a heavily condensed version.

Big smile for a fun race! A light wool long sleeve and lightweight tights were a good choice for a 50-degree spring morning.

Per the encouragement of a friend, I registered for the Salomon City Trailers Loppet 10K a couple days before the race. Fortunately I’d been running weekday mornings with Eleven, so I was somewhat prepared and ended up finishing in just under an hour!

It was a cool (50 degrees), soggy day in May and totally worth caking my Terra Kigers in layers of mud. The course started in Robbinsdale and followed a sidewalk/single track/rocky/railroad/bike path to Minneapolis. Definitely a new-to-me trek from a suburb to the city.

Highly recommend this race to brand new trail runners and experienced trail racers alike!
