Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel Half Marathon
The race is timed
to start after the first 40 or so marathoners go by. It starts south of
Meeks Bay on Glen Street, half way down the Marathon course, just
across the street and up
the hill from Rubicon
Realty. The course rolls downhill for the first 2
miles before starting a challenging climb of 520’ over 1.55 miles up the
"Hill from Hell", then 1.3 miles of rolling
terrain, then down 200’ over 9/10th miles crossing over Eagle Falls, and back up
200’ over 9/10th miles to the 20 mile mark at Inspiration Point.
The spectacular 20 mile mark or 7 mile Half Marathon mark can be viewed in the
movie "City of Angels" where Meg Ryan bikes down the narrow spine of the ridge
over looking Emerald Bay, Cascade Lake, and Tahoe itself. Rent the film and see
it in the last 15 minutes of the film. This
may be the most beautiful run you ever do.
The last 6.2 miles are all down hill and beautiful picking up the bike trail for
the last 3.5 miles to the finish going over Taylor Creek Bridge and the spawning
fire cracker red Kokanee salmon, through the Pope and Valhalla Historical
Estates along the waters edge, by Camp Richardson and finishing at Pope Beach
where the cold water's of Tahoe await your tired feet. A cold beer and a
hot dog, a finishers medal and shirt await you as well. There are aid
stations every mile for the Half Marathon and 10K. Check the back of your
race number for the shuttle bus schedule.

... I just wanted to let you know directly that
the race was great. I raced the half marathon for the fourth time now, and
had an awesome time -- what a beautiful run!!! For the second year now, I
camped at Fallen Leaf campground before the race; it works out really
well, being so close to the shuttle / finish line. As expected, the course
was spectacularly beautiful and the organization was superb. Thanks.
Keep up the great work!!!
