Weekend of 8/3-4/2013

A couple of events in the area this weekend:

Saturday, August 3, 2013

Squaw Valley Mountain Run
The 33rd annual running of this race, from the village at the base of squaw Valley (6200 ft.) to High Camp (8200 ft.)  So, 3.6 miles of high-elevation fun, followed by a fun party on the deck at High Camp, with Brew Brothers beer. Wish I could do this one this year -


Liquid Gold 5K
"Liquid Gold 5k is an event to celebrate and bring awareness to breastfeeding. Beautiful morning starts off at the University of Nevada, Knowledge Center. Come enjoy a morning of running or walking on well marked course throughout the University. Vendors and free food and drinks after, music and a great raffle! Sponsored by the Northern Nevada Breastfeeding Coalition, which is a subcommittee of the Maternal and Child Health Coalition."

This weekend - Ragnar Trail Relay Tahoe

Honestly, if you haven't already signed up for this, it's probably too late - but who knows, maybe you can hook up with a team that's missing a runner -

Friday-Saturday, July 26-25, 2013


Ragnar Trail Tahoe
Each team has 8 or 4 runners and does a total of 120 miles, consisting of 3 different loops in the Eldorado National Forest and the Sierra-at-Tahoe ski area. Loops are 2.6, 6.6 and 7.7 miles, and the third one includes a chairlift ride. Each loop starts and ends at a central location, so teams can camp and resupply there.

TRT Endurance Runs this weekend

Upcoming race in the Reno/Tahoe area this weekend is...

Saturday-Sunday, July 20-21, 2013


Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs
"A glimpse of heaven - a taste of hell" has been the tagline for this race for years, and it's apt. 50k, 50 mile and 100 mile courses, all with crazy elevation changes at altitude, will test the runners. I've finished this race twice and dropped it once, and can honestly say it's one of the best races I've ever done. Someday I'll be back...

Just one thing I can find going on this weekend, but it's a fun looking one:

The Arch Rivals Race
"A Superheroes vs Villiains family friendly 5K fun run in Downtown Reno." Dress as a superhero or villain, do the race, and get a cup for the Superhero Crawl that night. But maybe wash your sweaty costume before you go back out in it...  More info at their Facebook page.
