2016 update

Unfortunately the Genoa Peak Madathon will not be held in August of 2016. At this time we are planning on bringing it back bigger and better in 2017! Please contact me if you have any questions.

New for 2015

We have added a 55K distance to this event! This new ultra will follow the marathon to the top of Genoa Peak overlooking the Carson Valley to the east and all of Lake Tahoe to the west. From there the ultra will do a 6.6 mile loop that takes them north on jeep road along the ridge above Tahoe until it connects with the Tahoe Rim Trail. From there the course will head south on the world famous Rim Trail back to Sierra Canyon Trail before dropping back down to the town of Genoa following the marathon course.

Packet Pick Up/Onsite Registration

Packets can be picked up at Genoa Park Friday August 7 from 4-7PM. If you need race day pick up please contact the RD. Thank you.


We begin from Genoa Park in the historic Town of Genoa, Nevada and ascend into the Sierra to explore our madness.

For the Ultra and COMPLETELY MAD, a 4,450 climb in the first 12 miles will deliver a much deserved LAKE TAHOE VISTA from Genoa Peak (9150’). Total climbing for the marathon and ultra marathon is over 5600' and 7100' respectively.

The ONLY HALF MAD, will climb half the elevation and enjoy the views to the East. Total climbing on the half marathon is over 2300'. All finishers will be "certified" at the end of the run. So come and join us for an insane amount of FUN!
