The trail

The Tahoe Rim Trail 100 Mile Endurance Run will be run along single-track trails and dirt roads within Spooner State Park and on the Tahoe Rim Trail, located within the state park and on National Forest land, all at or above 8,000 feet of elevation.

The 100 mile race will simply be the 50 mile course run twice.

But make no mistake, there is nothing simple about the 100 mile course. Please refer the event website for a course description, elevation profile, and finishing times to get a better perception of the difficulty of this course.

All runners must be sufficiently prepared for all trail and environmental conditions.

Running any 100 mile race is a true challenge physically, mentally and emotionally, this race will truly challenge you. Don't expect to run a PR here.

A an awesome 100 mile run on smooth single-track trails and dirt roads. You cover two 50 miles loops but, because they are run at different times of the day, they feel very different. The scenery is breathtaking and the climbs are epic. The race is really well organized with fantastic volunteers and aid stations. I would definitely recommend this race to anyone looking for a challenge

2016 Tahoe Rim Trail, a top notch bucket list race (I'm pretty sure it is, it was my first one) George Ruiz and his volunteers are top notch and took care of every need for their runners and did so with kindness and a smile on their face. I would be remiss not to mention this in the review. The course itself is very serious not for the faint of heart, the climbs are epic and the views are even more so. I came up to Snow Peak as the sun was coming up and thought perhaps I might have died and gone to heaven. I would highly recommend this race to anyone, I would warn them to be ready to face a mighty challenge in the sierras!!
