Truckee River Trail Run
Less of a "trail run" than a "bike path run," but it's a beautiful and fun course. Follows the river from Tahoe City up to Squaw Valley, and has a great finish area in the village at Squaw. Last year they called it the Oktoberfest Run, and here's my race report from it.

Kokanee Trail Runs
Great event up at Camp Richardson and the Taylor Creek Snow Park, in collaboration with the Kokanee Salmon Fest they put on. 5K, 10K and half marathon options. Race reports from 2009 and 2010.
Run Ed Run
This looks like a smaller run out in Minden, but they appear to be stepping things up a bit. I think they were only a 5K for the last couple years, but this year there's also a 10K and half marathon option. And the prizes for the winners of each distance look pretty good too - Heavenly tickets, hotel and hot springs stays. Kinda wish I were faster...
