Kirkwood 5K, 10K and Children's runs
Sounds like an interesting course, all around Kirkwood Resort. Ceramic finisher's medals for the 5K/10K, and "Make Your Own" medals for the kids race. AND a drawing for a season ski pass -

Heavenly Mountain Run

"Takes runners from the California Base Lodge at 6,565-feet up Maggie’s to Hellwinkles and along the California Trail to the top of one of Lake Tahoe’s largest four-seasons resorts. The run finishes at the Tamarack Lodge at an awe-inspiring 9,150-feet. Runners can enjoy a scenic ride down the Heavenly Gondola back to the base or descend on their own." Part of the Tahoe Trail Running Series.

Big Blue Trail Run
5K and 10K options here, going on at the same time as the XTerra Tahoe. So, you get to spectate at the triathlon before and after the run. Fun course, winding through the trees around Incline Village. I did this one last year and had a blast; here's the race report.

Northstar Mountain Run
Another run in the Tahoe Trail Running series put on by Big Blue Adventure. I did this one last year, and it was a great course - if you like to climb. Up, up, up. And then there's a hill at the end. Here's my report from last year.

Squaw Valley Mountain Run
Now put on by the Auburn Ski Club, this is the 32nd annual running of the Mountain Run. From the village at the Base of Squaw to High Camp at 8200 feet, it's 2000 feet of climbing in 3.6 miles. A must-do run for Reno-Tahoe runners.

Liquid Gold 5K
Don't know much about this one - held up at UNR, but the active.com page doesn't have a lot of info. Ah - apparently it's a benefit for the Northern Nevada Breastfeeding Coalition - look them up on Facebook for more info.



Ruby Mountain Relay
And the Ruby Mountain Relay kicks off in Northeastern Nevada. Although - if you haven't already signed up for this one, it's probably too late...





The 5K Foam Fest that had been scheduled for this weekend up in Tahoe has apparently been moved to Ogden, Utah.
