KITE RACERS will meet at Brewery at 10am for racers meeting and 11am race start on Excelsior Bay.

Start / Finish Line will be near the MarineMax facility at 141 Minnetonka Blvd. Thank you to MarineMax for allowing our participants to access the bay from their property.

Our course director is planning a 2.5K loop. In order to create the best course conditions for each division, we will stagger the divisions:
• Skiers (classic and skate) will start at 2:00 – youth division, followed by adult division – and complete 4 laps for a 10K race.
• Snowshoers will start at approximately 2:40 and complete 3 laps for a 7.5K race.
• Fat Tire Bikes will start at approximately 3:00 and complete 4 laps for a 10K race.

Thank you for understanding that these event changes are necessary to make the event happen this year. The snow conditions on the main lake made it impossible to hold the event on the usual course around Big Island.

More information including directions to the start will be sent to all registered participants.

Don’t miss the after-party at Excelsior Brewing Company for refreshments from Joey Nova’s, music, awards and door prizes, and of course, beer!

Make a day of it and explore beautiful Excelsior!

Proceeds from this event will be donated to the ICA Food Shelf and Freshwater!
