The Lake Minnetonka Klondike Dog Derby will start on Water Street in the heart of charming downtown Excelsior, Minnesota. The course will continue down Water Street on to Lake Minnetonka and will run along its beautiful shores. The 30-mile race will run the perimeter of Lower Lake Minnetonka with no road crossings. The 50-mile race will run the perimeter of Lower Lake Minnetonka, cross one road to run Upper Lake Minnetonka, then cross the road again and finish the course around Lower Lake Minnetonka. The race will finish where it began, on Water Street in Excelsior. It will be a flat and fast run! We anticipate a great turnout of spectators, making for a fun race fueled by the energy and cheers of many race fans.
