The Return of the Racing Gnome
Race Day Registration is available starting at 8am at Auburn Ski Club. See our website for details.
For 2016 we keeping the event lean and mean. Our friends at Auburn Ski Club have graciously offered up their facility once again for our race to take place. With easy access, parking and facilities, it's a perfect fit to partner with another great organization in our area. The Return of the Racing Gnome is produced by the Donner Party Mountain Runners, an all-volunteer non-profit organization. Thank you for supporting our mission to inform and inspire mountain runners in Truckee-Tahoe.
The course is one lap for the 5km and two laps of challenging snowshoe running for the 10km. About 40% groomed, 55% snowshoe packed and for the lucky front runners, 5% fresh powder to power your way through.
This year's race is to highlight the sport of snowshoeing. All those that participate will receive the coveted gnome coffee mug.
