You'll be so high in the Sierra you'll swear you can hear Julie Andrews singing, "The Hills are Alive with the Sound of Music"! But maybe it's just oxygen deprivation. "

"Join us for the Journal Jog, an 8K run and walk in Reno, Nevada that passes through Idlewild Park and along the Truckee River. It is family friendly. This is a great first 8K for new runners. There is a division for pushing strollers. There also are various team categories including one for caterpillars. Costumes are encouraged. This is the 48th annual edition of this event. It is Reno's oldest footrace and an annual rite of passage for many."

"This epic Battle Born Trail Series Race will be taking place in Washoe Lake State Park. Just a 30 minute drive from Reno, this amazing state park features beautiful jeep trails, single track trails, and of course Washoe Lake! Enjoy a beautiful and flat run followed by a delicious BBQ. It is sure to be a fun adventure. Runners will travel around Washoe Lake State Park. The course is a flat, beautiful out and back on jeep trails and single track trails with little to no technical footing. You will run by Washoe Lake as well as “Little” Washoe Lake (for those in the Half & 30K). It’s a great course to go for speed or for beginner runners taking the plunge into trail running!"

"Defined by both the incredible beauty of Lake Tahoe and the towering peaks of the High Sierra, Lake Tahoe is one of the world’s most famous sporting playgrounds. The region has an almost endless variety of spectacular mountain biking trails, adventurous hikes and, of course, waterborne activities on the “Big Blue” – Lake Tahoe – one of the largest, deepest and purest alpine lakes on earth.
The Emerald Bay Trail Run starts at Eagle Point and then takes you around Emerald Bay and up the Rubicon Trail to D.L. Bliss State Park to finish at Lester Beach. The course is a 7.5 mile/12Km point to point route. The course is fast with low/moderate climbing."
