50M and 50K - Qualifying Standards
There are none, run strong.
The Tahoe Rim Trail 100 Mile Endurance Run will be run single-track trails and dirt roads within Spooner State Park and on the Tahoe Rim Trail located within the state park and on National Forest land. The 100 mile race will simply be the 50 mile course run twice. But make no mistake, there is nothing simple about the 100 mile course. Please refer to the 50 mile course description, elevation profile, and finishing times to get a better perception of the difficulty of this course. All runners must be sufficiently prepared for all trail and environmental conditions. Running any 100 mile race is a true challenge physically, mentally and emotionally!
The Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs is pleased to offer two training runs to acquaint runners with different section of the event course. We highly recommended our entrants, especially newcomers to our event, join us for these runs in order to become familiar with the trail and the conditions you might encounter come race day. This is equally important for those who have run the 50-mile and 100-mile distance with us in the past in order to familiarize themselves with the new section to Diamond Peak Ski Resort.
Aid Stations: There will be one aid station (Tunnel Creek, visited twice) on the June 15th run and two aid stations (Tunnel Creek and Hobart) on the June 16th run. It is still recommended that each runner bring at least two water bottles or a bladder system that carries at least 42 ounces.
With the increasing attendance at these training runs we now find it necessary to add a "little" formality in order to insure that we'll have adequate food and fluids at our aid stations. Those wishing to join us will need to sign up. We'll have updated links as the time draws near. There will be a nominal $20 cost per day, per person which covers both aid station food/beverages and end of the run refreshments, including our traditional spread of burgers (meat and veggie), sausages, salads, fruit, sodas and BEER.
Not registered to run this year but you'd like to join us on our training runs? No problem! You're welcome to join us but you will need to register below
