The Tahoe Rim Trail 100 Mile Endurance Run will be run on 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 all at or above 8,000 feet of elevation. 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 event website for a 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. 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.
Lottery Registration Opens December 6, 2015
Due to the high demand for this incredible race, the Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs has gone to a lottery registration. This means there is a two week opening (DECEMBER 6th-20th) to register for the lottery. No charges are made to your credit card until we draw the "winners" from the lottery pool on January 1, 2016. If you are chosen, you will be registered for the race and your credit card will be charged. If you are not selected, you will be placed on the waiting list in a totally random order. Each race will have their own waiting list. All racers who are selected by the lottery will receive an email from UltraSignUp notifying them of their entrance into the race and the credit card receipt.
If you are on the waiting list, there is a chance you will be pulled off the list and invited via email to join the race. AT THAT TIME, IF YOU ACCEPT THE INVITATION, your credit card will be charged and you are registered to run your heart out on one of the most scenic courses in North America.
