The 5th Annual Loop de Loop 5K/10K and Half-Marathon scheduled for Saturday, September 24th has been postponed to Saturday, October 22nd due to hazardous local conditions...
Dear Loop de Loop Participants:
The Loop de Loop Committee met this evening and discussed the weather and trail conditions in the Decorah area. It was determined the 5th Annual Loop de Loop 5K/10K and Half-Marathon scheduled for Saturday, September 24th will be postponed until Saturday, October 22nd due to conditions beyond our control. Portions of the trail are currently under water and many roads are closed in central Winneshiek County. For our patrons’ safety postponing the race is the best course of action. We hope you can understand the importance of keeping everyone safe and secure.
All three races will attempt to be run on Saturday, October 22nd at the same location. If you are unable to attend on that day please reply to, your t-shirt and race packet will be mailed to you. The committee will make every effort to have full services on the October 22nd date but please know that the courses and services may change.
On behalf of the Decorah Rotary Club, we thank you for your support of the Loop de Loop and the Rotary Club. Please join us in showing support to those impacted by recent flooding and weather throughout the state and in Northeast Iowa. Your generosity makes many local programs possible including scholarships for our young people and for improvements to the very trail we run and walk on. Because of your support a special donation will be made by the Decorah Rotary Club to the local flood relief fund.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
-  The Loop de Loop Team
