Reno 5000 Race #6
This is the last race in the series before the Championship - so if you're thinking of trying to qualify for that, it's your last chance.

Tough Mudder NorCal
I'm still kind of bitter about the horrible experience I had at the Bear Valley version of this event last year. But for 2011, they've moved it to Squaw Valley - we'll find out if they pull some of the same lame stuff on this year's contestants. Obstacle course at altitude.

Reno Gazette-Journal Jog
One of the biggest community races in Reno; the 43rd annual this year. An 8K walk/run Starting near Reno High on a pretty flat course along the Truckee River, and looping back. Always a fun event.

Emerald Bay Trail run - "Bay to Bliss"
I've heard about this run for a few years now, and as it's part of the Big Blue series I'm doing this summer, I finally get to check it out. Runs right along Emerald Bay, from the south side to D.L. Bliss state Park on the north. Hopefully I'll get some good pictures out of this one.

Athleta Iron Girl Lake Tahoe
Part of a series of Iron Girl events, this race out of South Lake includes a 400M swim, 24K bike and 5K run. Pretty sure you're gonna want a wetsuit for that one.

Tough Mudder NorCal
Also runs events on Sunday as well.
