You are here

It is a long wandering. A relay run ideally suited for teams of 12 runners on a 178 mile course. Starting in Downtown Reno along the Truckee River. Traveling through the Sierra Nevada mountains and along the shores of Lake Tahoe. Circling back through the Northern Nevada high desert to where you began in Reno.

The only changes of fortune you will experience will be for the better. You will have a great time. And when you finish, you will enjoy an overwhelming feeling of accomplishment and teamwork. And be the special guests at a party to celebrate your achievement.

This is a race that goes around the clock. It begins on a Friday night in May, and teammates relay throughout the wee hours. The course begins in Wingfield Park, an island park in the middle of the Truckee River in Downtown Reno. This is also the location of Reno's Truckee River Whitewater Park. Runners travel the loop course in a counter-clockwise direction. The course ends in Idlewild Park, another park along the Truckee River just minutes to the west from Downtown Reno.

The post relay party, called the Finish Line Festival, is held at Idlewild Park. It's open to the public. The Finish Line Festival includes a variety of food vendors, a beer garden, other food and drink, other product and services vendors, entertainment, and an awards ceremony.
