Carson Tahoe 5K Fun Run

"Whether you are a seasoned runner or casual walker, enjoy a serene journey through the beautiful Carson Tahoe Medical Campus and Silver Oak Golf Course. Participants will receive their individual completion time and a t-shirt to commemorate the event. All proceeds benefit the Carson Tahoe Health Foundation. The event is sponsored by Carson Tahoe Health and Silver Oak Golf Course, with assistance from the Tahoe Mountain Milers running group."

Color Blast Run

"Welcome to Tahoe’s first and only COLOR BLAST fun run! The COLOR BLAST will be your most colorful, fun and friend filled day ever! Did we mention we had color? And lots of it! Did we tell you about the party? Yup, COLOR BLAST is throwing a COLOR BLAST party following the run with great music, lots of dancing, more color and … oh yeah! COLOR! COLOR BLAST is really a great big party with a little running thrown in to make you feel good! And even better this COLOR EXPLOSION all goes to a great cause right here in our community. All proceeds from COLOR BLAST support Tahoe Youth & Family Services. Lake Tahoe Community College is sponsoring our start, finish and all the in between - the run will take place on College Way in South Lake Tahoe at the Lake Tahoe Community College. Parking is limited and at risk of COLOR BLAST so we are encouraging participants and spectators to GO GREEN and arrive by bike. Tahoe Youth & Family Services will sponsor a free bike valet for the event and then you can parade your COLOR EXPLOSION all the way back home!"

Emerald Bay Trail Run

"Defined by both the incredible beauty of Lake Tahoe and the towering peaks of the High Sierra, Lake Tahoe is one of the world’s most famous sporting playgrounds. The region has an almost endless variety of spectacular mountain biking trails, adventurous hikes and, of course, waterborne activities on the “Big Blue” – Lake Tahoe – one of the largest, deepest and purest alpine lakes on earth.
The Emerald Bay Trail Run starts at Eagle Point and then takes you around Emerald Bay and up the Rubicon Trail to D.L. Bliss State Park to finish at Lester Beach. The course is a 7.5 mile/12Km point to point route. The course is fast with low/moderate climbing.
Emerald Bay State Park is considered one of the most beautiful areas in the United States, as evidenced by its status as a Registered Natural Landmark. Carved by ancient glaciers, Emerald Bay offers unequaled scenic hiking, and trail running.
Majestic Emerald Bay is just a small part of this beautiful and pristine State Park covering 1,830 acres of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. You will find six miles of both rocky and sandy beaches on the magnificent shoreline. You will see ponderosa and jeffrey pines, red and white fir, cedar, junipers and cottonwood, and gnarled and stunted sugar pines.
From promontories such as Rubicon Point in D.L. Bliss State Park you can see over one hundred feet into the depths of Lake Tahoe. From the crest of Eagle Falls in Emerald Bay State Park, you can see a brilliant panorama of Emerald Bay, Fannette Island, Lake Tahoe, and the distant Nevada shore.

Plan on spending the entire day, because once you get here, you won’t want to leave."

RENOvate Run

"The RenoVate run is a 5k and 1 mile run. Event will take place at Paradise Park in Reno, NV.  This run is a fundraiser for RENOvate Project. RENOvate Project is the partnership of business leaders, churches, community organizations, schools and non profits coming together to make a real difference in Northeast Reno.
Proceeds from the RENOvate run will go to Evelyn Mount, Mathews Elementary School, Glenn Duncan S.T.E.M. Academy, Rita Cannan Elementary School, Sierra Vista Elementary School and RENOvate Project."
