Other Race Day Notes:
We will have an early bus pick up for the early starting Marathon Walkers.
We will have enough race bib pins. No excuse for running out.
We will anticipate more water and beer for hot weather.
We are going to try to add a loop off the side of the course, maybe into
the Valhalla historical estates, along the
lakefront and then back out to the bike path and on to the finish.
a 23% increase in entries over last year.
Picnic Director, Judy Riva, went to Raley's Super Market, here in
South Lake Tahoe, they refused the Marathon credit card. Instead they donated
all the picnic food to the Marathon. Next time you need to go to the grocery
store, think of that. Raley's has always been the community store, rather
than the corporate store.
other hand UPS left our Half Marathon special top 25 award shirts on their
loading dock in Alabama for 9 days, arriving the day after the marathon.
They had the opportunity to ship them here on Friday but said they couldn't
do it. They also refuse to pay for reshipping of the shirts to the 50 men
and women who finished in the top 25.

Four weeks before race day the original
timing company canceled out. Its About Time came to the rescue as did Do
It Sports, our on line registration company. The two companies worked together
to pull off the registration and timing of this race. The Lake Tahoe Marathon
is grateful for their can do spirit on such short notice.
