Truckee Marathon

This weekend marks the first year of a new tradition for Truckee.  The Truckee marathon will hold its inaugural marathon, half marathon and marathon relay this Sunday, September 25th.  The start and finish is in the heart of historic downtown Truckee. The race will be showcasing much of the progress that the town has been making on the Truckee Trails & Bikeways Master Plan (a 10 year vision for trails in the town of Truckee).  

To start, racers of all distances head out west towards Donner Lake and make a complete loop around the lake. The next phase goes up to Tahoe Donner where racers will run on the recently completed Trout Creek Trail that connects the neighborhood with a Class 1 bike path to the downtown Truckee community.  The half marathoners finish at the bottom of this segment and the marathon continues on a single track trail towards Gray’s Crossing and Old Greenwood where the course then drops racers in to the Glenshire community.  The path circles back on the Legacy Trail along the Truckee River with a finish line back in Historic Downtown Truckee.

The views capture the best of the Truckee area including Donner Lake, the Truckee River and the endless vistas of of surrounding peaks.  Truckee really is a special place.  Thanks to tremendous community support and fund raising efforts, these trails are linking all of Truckee together.  Sunday’s race will make for a memorable run around Truckee with the support of Big Blue Adventures, organizers of the race.
