June 2016 Races

Reno/Tahoe races for June 2016

June 3-4

Reno/Tahoe Odyssey

"It is a long wandering. A relay run ideally suited for teams of 12 runners on a 178 mile course. Starting in Downtown Reno along the Truckee River. Traveling through the Sierra Nevada mountains and along the shores of Lake Tahoe. Circling back through the Northern Nevada high desert to where you began in Reno.

The race begins Friday. It is a staggered start, with waves of teams starting every 15 to 30 minutes. The slower seeded teams will begin around  9 a.m. and the faster seeded teams will begin in the afternoon. Exact start times will be announced in the month before the event. Plan to get to Reno by Thursday night.

The only changes of fortune you will experience will be for the better. You will have a great time. And when you finish, you will enjoy an overwhelming feeling of accomplishment and teamwork. And be the special guests at a party to celebrate your achievement."
