Fresh Tracks 5K Snowshoe A snowshoe race at Camp Richardson, in South Lake Tahoe. Machine groomed track through forested terrain and mountain meadows. Mostly flat but some short, moderate climbs. This race benefits the Heavenly Freestyle Ski Team.
Pi Day Fun Run
Date: 3.14 (That's March 14th, get it?). Distance: 3.14 miles. Goal: finish in 31 minutes and 41 seconds. 2013 was our inaugural Pi Run and it landed on a Thursday so 3:14 in the afternoon was out of the question. We started at 6:14 instead! Brainchild of our (fun) run coordinator, Abbey Murray, this run is ALL ABOUT FUN. The Winner gets a Pie and all runners eat pizza pie!
Escape from Prison Hill
Lovingly dubbed "The Escape" this race is "The Challenge Of An Ultra Without The Distance." An all-dirt-half-marathon cuts a sinuous trail around Carson City's desert ridge called Prison Hill. Chugging up steep ravines, gliding over ridges and floating down near-vertical sandy slopes, runners see the mile markers (etched in stone) tick by and wonder, "Will I ever escape?" This is a local favorite and a best-kept secret, though, maybe not for long! In 2014, we added a 10K to the mix!
Airport Dash & Fun Run
This race will be introduced in 2014. Race Director, Bill Hartman (famous for his aid station on Snow Valley Peak during TRT) has added a Runway Dash and Fun Run to the Carson City Airport Annual Open House. Details to come.
Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs
Our nationally recognized 50 kilometer, 50 mile and 100 mile Ultra event brings runners from all over the world. This event sells out within minutes of opening registration and it's no surprise. The Tahoe Rim Trail is a beautiful alpine and sub-alpine trail, with sweeping views of Lake Tahoe and the Great Basin. The course is challenging: dropping to 6800' at the lowest point and climbing to 9214' at the highest, with a whole lot of up and downs in between. It's not called "A glimpse of heaven...a taste of hell" for nothing!
Kirkwood 5K / 10K / Kids Runs
A Labor Day Weekend tradition! Our Kirkwood Runs are a great way to spend a Saturday in the mountains with the family. Complete with a great finisher's prize and a drawing for ski passes at Kirkwood.
Kokanee 5K / 10K / 1/2M Trail
Held during the "Kokanee Festival" in beautiful South Lake Tahoe the Kokanee has become another tradition. For 2013 the event has been CANCELED due to forest thinning operations in the area. This event will be back in 2014!
Nevada Day Classic 2M / 8K
Nevada's Capital City throws a big party for Nevada Day. The Nevada Day Classic 2-mile run/walk and 8-kilometer run kick the whole thing off! Before the Nevada Day Parade begins, runners take to the backstreets of Carson City and sprint to the finish on the parade route as onlookers gather. Nevada was officially granted statehood on October 31st, 1864, and because of this, costumes are highly recommended.
