Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs 2021
Come play with us at 8,000 Feet over looking the Jewel of the Sierra, Lake Tahoe!
Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs has a new start and finish venue at Western Nevada College in Carson City, Nevada. All three races will be run on single-track trails and dirt roads at or above 8,000 feet of elevation within Carson City, Spooner State Park and the National Forest. Many miles are run on the Tahoe Rim Trail located within the state park and on National Forest land. The start will take you from Carson City to the top of Snow Valley Peak, which is a 4,200 foot climb! Runners will still experience all the same major aid stations they know and love: Hobart, Tunnel Creek and Diamond Peak.
But what goes up must come down! The course ends with a 3,000 foot decent back to Western Nevada College using historic flume roads and trails. There is nothing simple about the 100 mile course. It will be closer to 102 miles with approxiamately 22,000 feet of elevation gain. Please refer to the event website for a course description, elevation profile, and finishing times to get a better perception of the course difficulty. We will have Live GPS tracking for the 100 mile.
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.
