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.

Foot: Run, Walk, Snowshoe
Bike: (Ideally a fat bike)
Open: Ski, sled, or any other human-powered method (creativity encouraged)

-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.
