TRT includes three separate races: the 50-kilometer, 50-mile, and 100-mile distances. The 50s will take place Saturday, July 20 and the 100 will take place Saturday, July 20 and Sunday, July 21.
All three races start and finish at Spooner Lake, and weave through some of the Nevada section of the trail’s wonderful natural landmarks such as Marlette Lake, Snow Valley, Diamond Peak, and Tunnel Creek, to name a few.
Whether you’re running in one of the races, supporting a runner, volunteering, or spectating, you’re in for one of the world’s greatest treats.
And here’s the fantastic thing: the Tahoe Rim Trail is a spectacular must-do regardless of whether you’re here for the TRT races or not. It’s available to you every day. It’s free. It’s beautiful. Fun, too.
Whether you plan to run, hike, or bike on the Tahoe Rim Trail, plan for mind-bending views, delightful swims in mountain lakes, towering aspen groves, and a seemingly infinite variety of mountain flora and fauna.
Another little tip: although the TRT Endurance Races take place on a section of the trail in Nevada, the Tahoe Rim Trail circumnavigates the entire lake – so there are easily-accessible trailheads in several locations. Peruse the Tahoe Rim Trail Map Selection to find your favorite section:
