Please study the maps carefully. It is important that all runners have a good idea of the course ahead of time.

The maps you’ll need to cover the entire course are:
Lake Tahoe Basin-National Geographic (more detailed)
Crystal Basin– National Geographic (more detailed)
Lake Tahoe and Tahoe Rim Trail Recreation Map: Tom Harrison Map (less detail, but whole lake on one side of map)
Desolation Wilderness Trail Map: Tom Harrison Map (less detail than Crystal Basin map)
DOWNLOAD GPS TRACKS (highly recommended!!). I used a Garmin 64st and downloaded the Caltopo maps to it. Couldn’t have gotten lost with such great GPS info.
