4th of July weekend races

Wow, all sorts of stuff going on in the area over the long weekend...

Truckee Running Festival 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Kids runs
 "Come one come all and join us for a morning of trail running and fun at Riverview Park in Truckee, CA.  Try a 5 or 10K along the Legacy Trail or a 1/2 marathon featuring beautiful and scenic trails of Waddle Ranch.  Bring the kids as we have short race/runs for them as well.
The event is also a fundraiser for the Truckee Trails Foundation.  All the proceeds from the Kids Races will go to to the Truckee Trails Foundation, who's goal is to provide the Truckee area with a network of trails and bike paths for fun, adventure, and alternative transportation."

"For those looking for a good challenge that's not an ultra marathon. This is a 9.5-mile trek across the mountain tops from Spooner Summit to Kingsbury. The fire access road starts at Spooner Summit and climbs nearly 2,000 feet in the first 41/2 miles to its summit near Genoa Peak. The route is no easy chore, to be certain, but the view makes it worthwhile."

"Northern Nevada's only Duathlon event! Close to Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The RENO 5000 Firecracker Duathlon is a challenging course. Participants start off with a 5K (3.1 miles) Run/Walk. The run will be on paved roads and off-road, technical, single-track trails. There will be an aid station located at the halfway point. The 30K (18.6 miles)Bike will be 3 laps of a 6 mile out-and-back route, with aid stations every 3 miles. The bike course is on-road and hilly. After the bike portion, proceed back to the transition area, where spectators will be cheering you on, for your final 5K Run, which is the exact same course as the first 5K."

"A fun fun event for the whole family - passing by the cheering crowds gathering for the parade!"

"The first annual Tahoe Firecracker Trail Trek, to benefit the Incline High School Boys and Girls Cross Country team.   The Race will take place on the 4th of July as part of the Red White and Tahoe Blue activities. 
This event is great for the entire family and is a great way to kick off your 4th of July festivities.  So grab your racing/running/walking shoes and join us."
