Day #2 is sold out
Day #2 is sold out and registration is closed. We will not maintain a waiting list for the training runs.
Thank you for your interest in participating in the TRT training runs.
The TRT course is on public trails and I encourage you to come and visit the course on your own and explorer.
Day 1 is sold out
Thank you for those of you who have registered for the Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs training runs. At this time both days are sold out. Thank you for your interest.
The Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs is pleased to offer two training runs to acquaint runners with different sections of the event course. We highly recommend that newcomers to our event join us for these runs in order to become familiar with the trail and the conditions you might encounter on race day. This is equally important for those who are registered for the 50-mile and 100-mile distances in order to familiarize themselves with the northern half of the course that the 55K does not visit on race day.
We are limited to 150 runners per day.
Because of pending environmental studies being performed by the USFS to study the northern sections of the course including the Diamond Peak loop, Day One will begin and end at the base of Tunnel Creek Rd. at the Tunnel Creek Cafe. Mileage will be 19 miles and will include sections that are not part of the actual race course. Upon pending USFS approval the original planned course from Diamond Peak Resort will be restored and registered runners will be notified. This will make the Saturday run 23 miles.
Day 2 will begin and end at the dirt parking lot at the intersection of Hwy 50 & Hwy 28. You will have the option of running the complete 55K course by including the Red House Loop or turning around at Tunnel Creek and making it a 26 miles day.
There will be one aid station (Tunnel Creek, visited twice) on Day One, June 13th. There will be two aid stations (Tunnel Creek and Hobart) on Day Two, June 14th It is still recommended that each runner bring at least two water bottles or a bladder system that carries at least 70 ounces.
Please note that our aid stations are fairly stripped down affairs and not full service. Plan to self support with water and some snacks available at these locations.
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. 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, fruit, smoothies, sodas, and beer.
