Starting in Spooner Lake State Park, this race follows the Tahoe Rim Trail, a singletrack trail that circumnavigates Lake Tahoe and links together the surrounding peaks. Though the full Tahoe Rim Trail is 165 miles, the race offers 50K, 50- and 100-mile options. For the 100-mile race, racers spend 80% of the distance above 8,000 feet, through scenery that varies from lush forests and meadows to snowfields and desert.
