XTERRA Lake Tahoe (GGTC Members get 15% off race entry)


This is the all-time classic off-road triathlon course. Racers start the swim from a sandy beach in Lake Tahoe, one of the purest and deepest lakes in North America. The bike section test racers’ climbing and fitness levels. The bike starts up Tunnel Creek, a somewhat sandy gradual climb. Racers pop out from Tunnel Creek onto the area’s epic Flume Trail, which skirts the mountain side overlooking Lake Tahoe. Riders continue past Marlette Lake and down a rocky and fast Tahoe Rim Trail. The views are breathtaking! The Full, Sprint and Duathlon will complete the 22 mile bike with approximately 4000 feet of climbing. The trail running course is relatively flat, fast and scenic with tall pines, aspens, and creek crossings.

This is a large open grass community field. The event is set up and staged from here. From the starting area the course heads north and onto the great trail system featuring tall pines, aspens and creek crossings. Run one lap for the 5K or two for the 10K. The second lap starts right back in the venue creating a fun viewing area to cheer on the 10K participants.
