About the Route: The Tahoe 100k is a point to point exploration of the Tahoe Rim Trail and the Tahoe Basin. The route will take you on a magical journey from the East side of Lake Tahoe along the Rim Trail, through the mountains with views of Lake Tahoe, Sierra Nevada Mountains on an almost entirely single track course.
Trail Conditions: Single track, often smooth/dry soil with lots of granite/rock.
Race Format: Point to Point. This format allows for maximum adventure since participants will be traversing all new terrain with no repetitions other than brief out and backs to a couple of aid stations. Participants will need to take a bus from the finish area to the race start – or alternately if they have crew they can have their crew drive them to the start. This way runner’s vehicles will be at the finish line.
