2023 Emerald Bay Trail Run
The 2023 Emerald Bay Trail Run has been cancelled.
The Emerald Bay Trail Run is held within lands owned and operated by California State Parks (CSP). CSP recently reached out to us with the news that there is now going to be a Waterline Replacement Project at D.L. Bliss State Park. D.L. Bliss State Park is where the Emerald Bay Trail Run finish is located.
The 2024 tentative dates are the weekend of either 9/7 or 9/14, 2024.
We have exhausted any and all possibilities of hosting the event in 2023 as a result of this project. Please note that we work with staff at CSP for permitting the event who did not realize the EBTR would not be allowed during the Waterline Replacement Project.

Emerald Bay Trail Run - September 16, 2023
“One of America’s Most Scenic Trail Runs” - Competitor Magazine
Defined by both the incredible beauty of Lake Tahoe and the towering peaks of the High Sierra, Lake Tahoe is one of the world’s most famous sporting playgrounds. The region has an almost endless variety of spectacular mountain biking trails, adventurous hikes and, of course, waterborne activities on the “Big Blue” – Lake Tahoe – one of the largest, deepest and purest alpine lakes on earth.
The Emerald Bay Trail Run starts at Eagle Point and then takes you around Emerald Bay and up the Rubicon Trail to D.L. Bliss State Park to finish at Lester Beach. The course is a 7 mile/11Km (approximate) point to point route. The course is fast with low/moderate climbing. Shuttle from finish to start (parking) is included in the registration fee.
