Here's what some of the alumni have said..  Click here for more comments.

Howdy-
"I've run the Half Marathon for the last three years, and let me just say
that the Tahoe Marathon events are some of the best organized, well
supported, beautiful and fun races of the 200 or so events I've done in
the last fifteen years.  I look forward to this race like no other.
 Thank you very much for putting them on.  You do a fantastic job." ...Gabriel  9/25/2002


"This is just a brief note  to commend you on a fantastic run!!
In my twenty some years  of road racing, I have entered hundreds of races in Northern California/San Francisco Bay Area and I can't recall a better, more organized event than yours.
The pre race publicity, the web page, the expo, the shuttle service, the volunteers, the T-shirts, the aid stations, medals...everything was superb! The scenery wasn't too shabby either.
A big "high five" to the directors, the volunteers, the community, to all involved, for an incredible experience!"
See you next year!!
P. C. , Occidental, CA
In '99 we've run your marathon (the 4 runner's from Germany).
Because it was so beautiful, we come again with 5 runners. F. W. , Sassenburg-Stude, Germany
