THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
As of now we do not have permits from the Forest Service and we may not get them unless we are allowed to gather in larger groups so we will have to wait and see what the powers that be decide. However we have a plan B to still hold the event. This year the start/finish is at Donner Ski Ranch, on privately owned land so we won't need a permit, but we will have to alter the course. We will send out the new course details by July and as we work on that it is possible to still get our permit and run close to the original route on the Warren Lake loop over Castle and Basin peaks. We will have to follow the new health guidelines for everyone's safety and those details will come out in July as well. For now we are almost certain that one way or another, Lost and Found will happen on August 1st!
We will continue to take reservations by using the waitlist so if for some reason we can't move forward then we won't have to refund the fees, if we can then you will asked to confirm entry fees. If you have already paid your fee, we will offer refunds or rollovers.
Thanks for your patience, stay safe and train as best you can.
Wildflowers and Granite
Welcome to one of Truckee's most scenic and rugged trail races. The Lost and Found 55K/30k/10k has something for everyone. The 55K is a modified multi loop course. The start/finish is at Donner Ranch Ski area. Starting with some steep climbs and great views on the ski runs and trails then heading over to the Warren lake loop around Castle Peak. Take the single track over to the Donner Lake Rim Trail to picturesque Summit Lake Aid station as you wind through ancient granite. The climb up to the Frog Lake overlook is worth it as you then fall off the ridge where you find miles of wildflowers and little streams as you make your way through this pristine alpine valley. The climb up to Basin Peak will test your mettle but then the reward is real as follow along the most amazing ridge with 360' views from the Coast Range to Mt Rose where you summit Castle Peak. Enjoy the views before you plummet down to Castle Pass, hop on the hole in the ground trail and head back to the start/finish. Approximate elevation gain is 6800 feet. The 30k will have around 4000 feet of gain. The 10k is in the Donner Ski Ranch section on Donner Summit.
