Registration will open May 1 st at a cost of $40, first come first serve. Only 150 spots will open up.

Why the restrictions? We are keeping it contained within the Spooner Lake Nevada State Park Backcountry.
The training runs are what they imply, a training run. They are a very much stripped down affair with bare essentials at the aid stations. There will be one aid station at Tunnel Creek, visited twice on one training run and on the other training run there will be two aid stations, one at Tunnel Creek and one at Hobart. It is mandatory that each runner bring at least two water bottles or a bladder system that carries at least 70 ounces.
With the increasing attendance at these training runs we now find it necessary to limit the
maximum number of registered runners to 150 each day. Our goal is for everyone to have
fun in the Tahoe sun therefore we need to do this in order to insure that we'll have adequate
food and fluids at our aid stations, and also because we have a very limited number of volunteers to take care of 300 runners. Those wishing to join us will need to sign up. Registration will be on Ultra Signup.com and there will be a nominal cost of $40, per person which covers both aid station food/beverages and end of the run refreshments, including our traditional spread of burgers (meat and black bean), sausages, fruit, sodas and BEER.
Not registered to run this year but you'd like to join us on our training run? If the run are
not sold out with the 150 limit, you're welcome to join us, sign up at Ultra Signup.com.
