- PLACE - Lily Lake 1208 Greeley St S Stillwater, MN US 55082
- OVERVIEW - How many times can you get around a frozen lake in 1 hour? Here's your chance to find out. The inaugural Lily Lake Looper takes place on Lily Lake, where you will attempt to make it around the lake as many times as possible before the time runs out. Any human-powered method is permissible—run, walk, fat bike, ski, snowshoe, or somersault around the ~1 mile loop along the perimeter of the lake. You can do it solo or as a team, just as long as you do it. - DIVISIONS - Foot: Run, Walk, Snowshoe Bike: (Ideally a fat bike) Open: Ski, sled, or any other human-powered method (creativity encouraged) - RULES - -Full loops must be completed before the 1 hour cutoff in order to be counted. -Teams must be no more than 50% human powered. (Example, if you want to do a sled team with 2 people, 1 person has to be in the sled and one person has to be pulling / pushing. If you have a 4 person team, 2 have to be in the sled and 2 have to be pulling. No motorized aids.) You're able to switch, as long as you're not moving forward during the transition. Creativity in this division is encouraged.
-The day will start with bagpipes and if you stick around you'll be able to participate in other activities such as "The Burning of the Greens" in which a pile of Christmas trees will be burned in the center of the lake to signify the end of the holiday season. Feel free to bring your tree for free and add to the pile.
-There are no prizes, t-shirts, or any other material incentives; however, you will receive a punch on your Stillwater Winterfest card for participating to be entered in the grand prize drawing at the end of the festival. This race is about showing winter who's boss, bragging rights, and adding a great experience to your life resume. -Expect uneven terrain, ice, and cold. Plan and prepare accordingly.
