    The 2018 Chuck & Don's Skijoring Loppet is racing around the corner! Even if you aren't up to cross-country ski with your dog, bring your dog to watch this unique and free-admission event. Walk around the heated Loppet Village, meet other dogs (and humans) and cheer on the racers. On Saturday, Jan. 27 and Sunday, Feb. 4, skijorers will race a Loppet trail on Lake Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska and finish at the Loppet Village in the Uptown Calhoun Commons area. 10K, 5K and 3K distances make the Skijoring Loppet and medal ceremony (including Chuck & Don's gift cards!) a fan favorite. For more information and the most current times and event locations (including alternate locations because, snow happens), visit the City of Lakes Loppet.
