Covid-19 Updates and Race Thoughts...

  • This is a work in progress. Keep checking back for changes.

  • We are planning on  RunTahoe October 9-11.

  • We do not believe in Virtual Races. You can only experience the beauty of Tahoe by Running Tahoe.

  • Part of the Run Tahoe experience is the fellow runners you meet and run with at Lake Tahoe.

  • The experience of seeing the beauty of Lake Tahoe, seeing a bear and its cubs, the spawning salmon under the Taylor Creek Bridge and eagle soaring is part of the Lake Tahoe Marathon experience that can not be experienced virtually.

  • If there is any doubt, we will make our decision in August, but definitely drag our feet as long as possible.

  • If postponement is required, we will look at May 21-23, 2021.

  • Or, we will cancel altogether and come back next year, October 8-10, 2021. You can transfer yourself on the web page above under "Contact Us" with out a fee.

  • You may also transfer without fee to the Maui Oceanfront Marathon, (January 17) but will need to contact the Ring Master below for special attention to do that.

  • If we have to postpone, all entries will be automatically moved over to the next official date.

  • We would go belly up if we refunded entry fees. It is easier for the runner to lose an entry fee than for our non-profit race to go bankrupt. Most of your entry fee pays for shirts and awards long before the race occurs. The Ring Master doesn't get paid in money.

  • If you are concerned about a refund, do not enter until closer to race day.

  • Busing  with  social distancing is our big concern and is financially impossible. You will be crammed into the buses going to the start lines in the morning and will have to wear your mask to ride the bus. If the airlines can cram you in for several hours we should be able to bus you 13 or 26 miles to your start line, with masks on and with windows "cracked". 

  • New: We will use wave starts. 48 runners to a wave and the 48 of you will all take the same bus to the start line. At the start line the 48 of you will start together at a specific time. 

  • Buses will depart 10 minutes apart.

  • Bus pickups are all at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in the back parking lot which is about 4 or 5 blocks from the Sunday finish line.

  • You will need to wear your face mask around the start line as well and only take it off after you spread out during the race.

  • New:We will not have an expo to pass out race bibs. We will mail out your race bib to the address you listed on your registration 3 weeks before the race. And continue to mail them out until 10 days out. Between 10 days out and race eve your race bib will be at the start line.  Look for a confirmation email to confirm your mailing address about a month out.

  • You will always have the option of having someone drop you off at the start line to avoid the bus.

  • We will give you a mask at the finish line with your finishers medal so you can hang out as normal but with social distancing. We have a nice big beach at the finish to do so.

  • On a personal note, this was going to be my retirement year, but I am not going out with an unsatisfying year. 

  • The 4-Person Marathon Relay and Ultra Relay has been cancelled. Contact us for refund or to change to the Half, 10K or 5K.

  • The Thursday night Pasta Feed is also cancelled. Refunds will be made automatically to your CC#. See our restaurant link for other local pasta dinner options.

  We are in a wait and see situation, needless to say. If you have any ideas or suggestions please email the Ring Master at: Leswright@sbcglobal.net
