Getting the "Weekend Events" post out a bit early this week, because of the:
Thin Air Distance Festival
"The Thin Air Distance Festival is a four day staged running race, with its location in majestic and beautiful South Lake Tahoe. From the serious to the casual competitor, it offers a different way to test one’s fitness and abilities. "
The four days of running events are: Thursday 10K, Friday 11K, Saturday 10 mile (also a 5K event) and Sunday 5K. If you run all 4 days, the distance totals to a marathon.
Also this weekend:
Scheels Spark-a-delic 5K/10K
Run outside of the Scheels store in Sparks, usually incorporating Sparks Marina as part of the course, this race always has great prizes and swag.
