Every year, fans from across the state of Minnesota trek hundreds of miles to see their favorite Gopher teams in action. Later this spring, Director of Athletics Norwood Teague, a collection of Gopher coaches and Goldy will return the favor, embracing the traditional college road trip and traveling to nine cities throughout greater Minnesota to visit friends, family and fans. The Athletics Department today announced the planned dates and stops for this adventure on asphalt, the 2014 Gopher Road Trip: Chalk Talk.
"We're the only Division I school in Minnesota and we love that our teams have the privilege of representing the entire state," said Teague. "We have amazing fans in every corner of Minnesota, but some may not have the opportunity to come see us as often as they would like. Our annual road trip lets us bring the U to them. I'm looking forward to hitting the road and celebrating Gopher Athletics with fans across Minnesota."
This year's Gopher Road Trip features a pair of two-day excursions. The first leg of the trip will leave campus on May 20 and head west to Willmar before taking a sharp right and traveling across northern Minnesota, returning on May 21 through St. Cloud. The second leg will hit the road June 3, first stopping in Redwood Falls and then heading east across the lower part of the state before coming back to Minneapolis. A complete listing of dates, times and event locations for the 2014 Gopher Road Trip is below.
Events at all stops on the Gopher Road Trip are open to the public but space is limited. Registering to attend events in advance via the Gopher Road Trip website is highly encouraged, as some may reach capacity quickly.
