Alpenglow Sports Mountain Festival - Summer 2018

The Alpenglow Sports Mountain Festival is the ultimate outdoor recreation summer kick-off event in Tahoe.  For a week, the public can choose from an array of activities such as trail running races, running clinics, yoga, wildflower hikes, SUP tours, rock climbing lessons, birdwatching, open water swimming, dog first aid, book signings and special guest speakers and more. The Mountain Festival covers it all. The festival is from June 16-June 24th, and there are several options every day to learn something new or just get out in nature.

The festival opens with the epic Broken Arrow Skyrace, which is a 3 day event drawing elite trail runners and recreational runners alike. Skyracing is a European style of running that is characterized by off-trail scrambling, steep terrain and loose rock descents. The majority of the race will take place above 6,000 feet and all course options (52K, 26K, 10K, Vertical K) have a considerable amount of vertical gain and loss. A true mountain adventure, the Broken Arrow Skyrace is not to be missed for running enthusiasts. Live music, craft beer, food and film will greet runners at the end of the course surrounded by the gorgeous peaks of Squaw Valley.

For those who aren’t ready to participate a race, trail running, swimming, SUP and rock climbing clinics run throughout the week and can provide the foundation to help participants learn the fundamentals of each sport. There is so much to do in Tahoe and so many ways to enjoy nature. The Alpenglow Mountain Festival is an unbelievable opportunity to get out and see what these mountains are all about.
