Busy weekend, September 28-29, 2013

Looks like I missed a race on the calendar last weekend - there was a 5K "Color Me Rad" race up at UNR. You guys have to tell me if I'm missing something...

Hope I'm not missing anything this weekend; sure looks like there's a lot going on -

Lake Tahoe Marathon

One of the region's marquee events, and a whole weekend full of activities. The main event is the Sunday marathon from Tahoe City to Pope Beach on the south end of the lake.

Run Walk Roll Against Bullying

A 5K run or 1.5 mile walk or "roll" in the nice flat neighborhoods around IGT in south Reno. Put on by NevadaPEP, which, from their website, I can't figure out what it stands for.

Reno Galena Fest Wicked Thorn

A 7.25 mile trail race in the hills south of Reno, in conjunction with the Bloody Rose mountain bike event. There were Living Social and Groupon deals for this race earlier in the year; hope some of you took advantage of them.

* Apparently there's also a Tough Mudder event going on up at Northstar this weekend. But you guys know what I think of Tough Mudders...
