Reno/Tahoe Turkey Trot roundup

Ahh, that time of year again, when runner's minds turn to working off all the holiday calories. Also, getting out in the crisp autumn air, seeing some fall colors on the trees, etc. So, to that end - all the Turkey Trots I can find in the area:

Donner Lake Turkey Trot

"The idea of a fun race around Donner Lake was hatched back in 1976 by a small group of enthusiastic runners who wanted to make room for all the turkey and pies they were going to  be eating in the weeks ahead.
34 years later the Donner Lake Turkey Trot is a popular event attracting 200 runners from Reno, Sacramento & The Bay Area as well as many locals who enjoy the excuse to support a good cause & get out for a morning run/walk
Auburn Ski Club Junior Nordic Team organizes the race as a fundraiser and a way to get ready for the ski season.
The history of the event has always been to be fun and funky and happens regardless of the weather. The event has happened with snowstorms, below freezing temperatures, ice, rain and beautiful sunny days.

Auburn Ski Club has upgraded the timing of the event from the self timing days, but still tries to keep the spirit of fun and families."

The event starts and finishes in the parking lot of Scheels at Legends at Sparks Marina. Participants can choose from a 10K (6.2 miles) run (timed) or a a 2-mile walk or run (not timed). The courses are user-friendly for both runners and walkers.
