Races this weekend - 6/11-12/11

So now that the runners of the area are over their Reno/Tahoe Odyssey hangover, it's time for another weekend of races. Another relay this weekend, and a small local 5/10K.

47th Annual DeCelle Memorial Lake Tahoe Relay
This 7-leg loop around Lake Tahoe, starting and finishing in South Lake, is the oldest relay race in the country. Each leg is around 10 miles, with the shortest being 8.2 and the longest 12.3.  I can attest to it being a blast - I've done it a couple times, and had lots of fun. Looks like good weekend weather for it, too.

Carson Valley Days Walk, Jog, Run!
Also on Saturday is this 5k/10k (ish), associated with the festival in Gardnerville.The 10k apparently only measures 5.8 miles (anyone want a new PR?), but at least they're up front about that. If you're headed south this weekend and in the mood for a race, this looks like a fun one -
