Style of Registration: Registration is a lottery. Volunteers with race credit & transfers will be given priority. We do have a high number of transfers because of the 2020 race cancellation. This will limit much more than usual the number of available spots to those who are not transfers. We usually prioritize in the following order in the lottery:
-Individuals with volunteer credit
-Official transfers from current year/previous year
-Those who hope to complete the Triple Crown of 200s in one calendar year (Bigfoot 200 in August, Tahoe 200 in September and Moab 240 in October)
We expect about 100 spots to be available to runners who are not transfers for the 2021 race but we will not know exactly how many we have until we process transfers who also must go through the registration process. The race takes a total of 250-300 runners depending on the year.
Description of race / route: You have 100 hours (4 days and 4 hours) to complete a 200 mile (to be exact 205.5 miles) marked trail course around Lake Tahoe on foot. The route has 40,200 feet of climbing (80,400 elevation change). No repetition or long out and backs, just one huge loop through Tahoe backcountry, along the Tahoe Rim Trail, through the Crystal Basin, past sparkling alpine lakes, through rock forests and meadows of wildflowers. The race is well supported with aid stations serving real food, sleep stations, skilled medical team, live tracking of runners through each aid station, and handmade finisher buckles as well as other amazing swag!
