Arrive late morning and head to our house where lunch awaits. After eating, we’ll unpack, get settled and eventually head out for a relaxed and scenic afternoon run, giving everyone a chance to ease into the altitude and mountain terrain. Then, back to the house for showers, a big dinner and drinks. Up to 7 miles, trail
Wake up to coffee and a relaxed breakfast before heading out for a stunning stretch of trail overlooking Donner Lake. This scenic point-to-point run will have you pausing frequently for photos (and to catch your breath), and afterward you can relax with a picnic and swimming at historic Donner Lake. Once we are beached out, we'll head back to the house for another delicious dinner and a chance to prepare for tomorrow’s big run! Up to 7 miles, trail
We will wake up early to coffee, a light breakfast and sunrise before heading to Lake Tahoe for a point-to-point long run on a world-famous trail with views that you won't believe! Take. Your. Time. After finishing what very well may be the most beautiful long run of your life, indulge in a hearty sandwich and a beverage from the cafe at the finish line. Once everyone is done we’ll relax and recover on a pristine, hidden beach just down the road. That evening we’ll indulge in a big dinner, drinks, dessert, stories and (most likely) an early bedtime. Up to 14 miles, trail. Though the run can be shortened to any length you wish, everyone is encouraged to prepare for the full 14 mile distance.
Yesterday might have been the most beautiful run of your life, but there's fairly good chance that today will be even better! This point-to-point trail takes you along the crystal clear shores of South Lake Tahoe, with a photo opp at every turn. Finish at a shady cove where you will be picked up by boat. A picnic and drinks await on board. Spend the afternoon swimming and relaxing while getting a tour of some of Lake Tahoe's most spectacular cliff lined shores and beaches. That evening, kick back for one last dinner and one last dramatic Tahoe sunset. 5 mile point to point run, with options for 3 or 7 miles available, trail
Today's run is optional, but you won't want to miss it! We've got a history lesson and a unique morning recovery run (or walk, if you prefer) near Donner Pass in store for you. A final big brunch will be prepared as everyone packs up, and after eating we will head to the airport for departures. Up to 5 miles, dirt/gravel road

You will need to arrive at the Reno airport by 12:00 pm on the first day and depart no earlier than 1:00 pm on the last day. Our airport transfers will be based on these times. If you are driving in, we'll make sure you get all of the info you need, and if you choose to stay in Reno we will pick you up or drop you off at your hotel. Suggestions and guidance will be provided once you are registered!
Please note that travel insurance is strongly recommended. Although we hope you never need it, we've seen enough to know that it can be a lifesaver in the event of a medical emergency, flight delays that cause you to miss the start of the trip, lost baggage or cancellation on your part (broke your leg two weeks before departure? Insurance could cover the entire cost of your trip!).
You can find those here.
