This weekend's races: Street or Trail?

Hey, choices this weekend! Both on Sunday, as well:

If you're looking for a road race, there's the...

Reno 5000 Series #2
Honestly, it's kind of hard to figure out what they want to call this one - the Mustang Run, the Dolan Auto Group Damonte Ranch Run - but anyway, it's the second in their series, and they have a 5K, 10K, half marathon as well as a kids 1 miler. These are usually well-run, fun events, but they don't do race day registration, so get on it if you're interested.

If you're more in the mood for some trails, though, head up to Tahoe for the...

Burton Creek Trail Run
 Event description: "The Burton Creek Trail Run takes place on a beautiful, fun and challenging trail system within Burton Creek State Park near Tahoe City, CA. The course features miles of single track through pine forests and high sierra meadows. Burton Creek drains the runoff from Mt. Watson into Lake Tahoe. You’ll see and hear the creek often and June is a great wildflower time of year as well. Choose between from the 6K, 12K, Half Marathon or 50K."

I like that they're not calling them 5 and 10Ks this year; those measurements were always somewhat inexact... :)
