Reno/Tahoe races for June 2016
June 3-4"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."
Try a 5K or 10K along the Legacy Trail or a half marathon featuring beautiful and scenic trails of Waddle Ranch. Bring the kids as we have short race/runs for them as well."
"All proceeds from 2016’s Walk Jog Run will go towards forming teen summer workshops. Why are we doing this? Studies have shown that teen drug use rises in June-July summer months. So come on out and support our run!"
"At the Arch Rivals Run you can live out your dreams over the course of five kilometers. Be Superman or Lex Luthor. Be Spiderman. Be Wonder Woman. Be anybody who might get us in trouble for mentioning trademarked names- it’s up to you! You get to run (or walk) as whoever you have always dreamed of being- and if that doesn’t jazz you up you should check out our photos, because the people who have raced before you had the happiest time of their lives."
"The Squaw Valley Half Marathon starts and finishes at the iconic Village At Squaw Valley, site of the historic 1960 Winter Olympics. The course is fast and flat, a scenic out and back featuring mainly paved trail through the valley and along the Truckee River. During the route keep an eye out for bald eagles, mule deer and trout leaping out of the river all while enjoying the cool, refreshing sierra air.
You will be supported by five aid stations along the course which will have water, electrolyte beverage and a variety of fruit and snacks. At the finish we will have the music pumping, a selection of recovery foods and some ice cold Lagunitas beer and soda to celebrate your accomplishment.
Stick around to cheer on the other runners and relax in the Village while enjoying a perfect Squaw Sunday afternoon. This one you will not want to miss!"
Burton Creek drains the runoff from Mt. Watson into Lake Tahoe. You’ll see and hear the creek often and June is a great wildflower time of year as well. Choose between from the 6K, 12K, or Half Marathon. The Burton Creek Half Marathon is one of the best Lake Tahoe Half Marathons. Also bring the kids as we offer age appropriate distance kids races for those 4 and older."
