Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs

July 15 - July 16

 

The Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs is a popular trail running event that takes place annually on the scenic Tahoe Rim Trail, which is a 165-mile trail that circumnavigates the stunning Lake Tahoe in California and Nevada.  The event includes multiple distances for runners of different abilities and experience levels, including 100 miles, 50 miles, and 50k.   Each event starts at Western Nevada College in Carson City and on single-track trails and dirt roads with spectacular views of Lake Tahoe and the deep valleys of the Great Basin. Many miles are run on the Tahoe Rim Trail located within the Spooner backcountry of the Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park and on the Toiyabe National Forest land.  Western Nevada College is located at 4,888 feet of elevation, and the highest point of the course reaches 9,214 feet.

The courses feature challenging terrain, including steep climbs and descents, rocky trails, and technical sections that require runners to be skilled and experienced in trail running. Along the way, runners are treated to breathtaking views of the lake and the surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains.  In July,  runners can expect warm temperatures during the day and cool temperatures at night. To help runners stay hydrated and fueled, several well-stocked aid stations along the course offer food, water, and other supplies.

There is nothing simple about the 100-mile course. It will be closer to 102 miles with approximately 22,000 feet of elevation gain. To understand the course difficulty, refer to the event website for a course description, qualification requirements, elevation profile, and finishing times.  There will also be live GPS tracking for the 100-mile.  Running a 100-mile, 50-mile, or 55K race is a true challenge physically, mentally, and emotionally. Don’t expect to run a PR here. DO expect to find the finest aid stations in ultra running, epic scenery, and world-famous volunteers!
