Due to recent developments tied to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the heightened risks for people with intellectual disabilities and the elderly, Special Olympics Minnesota is suspending all sport training, practices and competition activities, and other events involving our athletes beginning now through April 5, 2020. This date is fluid and can change based on new developments. We will be monitoring the situation closely and posting any updates at http://somn.org/covid19

Lunch will be served after athletes have completed their timed runs.  Lunch tickets will be provided to delegations that requested lunch through their online registration.  Tickets can be redeemed in the cafeteria on the lower level of the Alps Chalet for a burger basket (burger, fries and fountain drink) or chicken strip basket (chicken strips, fries and fountain drink). We ask if possible that participants wait to eat until after all their timed runs have been completed so they don’t miss an event.

Spectators may purchase food on their own and the cafeteria will be open to the public.

Parking is available in the main parking lots near the Alps Chalet at the bottom of the hill.
