Weekend events, 8/31-9/1/2013

For a while I had on the calendar an event up at Tahoe for this weekend called the Peeplechase, but it looks like that's been cancelled. Have a feeling there may be a few events like that falling off the calendar this fall. Just added a few more, though, so it balances out somewhat...

Kirkwood 5K, 10K and children's runs

Put on by the Tahoe Mountain Milers, this look like a fun set of races down at Kirkwood. 5 and 10K trail races, lots of climbing and scenic views. Unique ceramic finishers medals, and a drawing for downhill or cross country ski passes. Might be less smoky down south this weekend, too.

Heavenly Mountain Run

"The second annual Heavenly Mountain Run takes runners from the California Base Lodge at 6,565-feet, 5.8 miles, 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."
