* Be early. Buses will load next to the Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel at the Stateline Transportation Center (STC).  Marathon & 20 Miler buses will go around the east side of the lake (skipping the "Y" & Camp Richardson). All other event buses will go up the race course. Parking is free at the casinos and the "Y" at the corner of  Highways 50 and 89, but $10 near the  finish line at the Camp Richardson campground.  THE ONLY PLACE TO CATCH A BUS TO THE MARATHON & 20 MILER START is next to Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel at the STC!!   You must reserve your seat at the Expo or go standby.

Shuttles from Tahoe City to the Half Marathon, 10K and 5K start lines are not as convenient because of the early departure time. There is free parking just south of Fanny Bridge at 60 Acre Park. It’s best to drive to the Camp Rich paid parking or the  free parking at the "Y" and take the shuttle back to the start line and drive back to Tahoe City after the race; or be dropped off at the start by friends; or park on a side street near the Half Marathon start and take the post event return bus (ask the driver to let you off ). There is no place to park at the 5K & 10K start area. (as in:  you could be ticketed and towed!)

Post Race Buses will return runners along Hwy 50 from the finish line to the Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel (with call stops along the way), at regular intervals starting at 11 AM and ending at 3 PM.  Board the bus at the entrance to Pope Beach. Return buses to Tahoe City will leave from outside Pope Beach at: 12:30  PM 1:30 PM,  2:30 PM.  Plan ahead if you will not finish in time to catch these last shuttles. Race timing stops at 2:30 PM for all events. (That's 8 hours for the Early Start Marathon)

Spectators  may take a free shuttle bus from the bus stop   on Hwy. 89 adjacent to TJ Maxx at the "Y", to the finish line area at Pope Beach.  Parking is limited near Pope Beach and costs $10 to encourage use of free transportation and to keep our event green. The Forest Service, as a condition for the Marathon to use Pope Beach for the finish, posts No Parking signs along Hwy 89 and has the CHP ticket cars parked in these posted areas. The campground parking lot across from Pope Beach  is limited to 300 cars at $10 each.  The alternative for spectators is to park for free at the TJ Maxx shopping center  at the "Y", ( NE corner of H50 & H89)  and take the continuous free shuttle buses to the Pope Beach finish area.  Dogs are not allowed into Pope Beach or on the race course..

Awards: All participants will receive a technical shirt at the expo. All finishers will receive a finisher’s medal.
Full marathoners and half marathoners will also receive a finisher’s license plate holder at the finish.
The first 25 men & women in the Marathon, Half-Marathon, and 10K will receive a Top 25 Finisher’s shirt at the finish line. Awards will be presented three deep in the 5K, 10K, Half & Marathon in 5 year age divisions on the beach after your race.
