A Note About Leatherman’s Loop 2017 Entry for Trail Mix 2016 Finishers

You are guaranteed selection in the Leatherman’s Loop Lottery for 2017 ONLY IF YOU ENTER THE LOOP LOTTERY AND if you finished at least 4 of 6 races in the 2016 Trail Mix Series.

You have to register for the Loop Lottery so we know how many spots are available to the other regular entrants in the Loop Lottery. You are guaranteed to get picked for a spot in the Loop Lottery if you are a Trail Mix series finisher — but we won’t enter your name into the Loop Lottery automatically.

Thanks for understanding and making our jobs easier 😉

UPDATE: If you are a Trail Mix 2016 finisher and you are reading this after the lottery has closed and you would like a late entry into the 2017 Loop due to a misunderstanding AND you are on the list of finishers at the bottom of this Final 2016 Trail Mix post here, please contact us and let us know your request. There are only around 10 runners in this situation so we can accommodate you if you let us know soon. The closer it gets to the Loop, the less flexible we will be with offering help for your situation.
