Covid-19 Updates and Race Thoughts...

  • Updated Oct 7, 2021

  • Because of the smoke and fire in the Lake Tahoe basin we have postponed the LTM to Oct 29-31.

  • Runners may also run their event virtually instead.

  • The fire is 97% contained. Meaning it is surrounded but still smoldering in places.

  • Today the air quality is back to its normal great.

  • See the air quality at: http://www.PurpleAir.com

  • We are been dealt lemons but will make lemonade by moving our dates to Halloween for this year.

  • We are 99% certain by Halloween the Covid Pandemic will be far in the rear view mirror. We should all have had our vaccine shots by then. California leads the nation in fewest new infections.

  • To pick up your race bib you will have to show your vaccination card or show a negative Covid 19 test that was taken within 5 days of picking up your race bib.

  • Before you make your trip please make at least 1 copy all on one sheet your photo ID and your vaccination card. Or your photo ID and a recent 5 day NEGATIVE Covid-19 test.

  • You will need to show one copy to get your race bib and swag.

  • You will need to present your race bib to board the bus race morning

  • If you need to ride the bus to the start to get your race bib you will need to show your vaccine card or covid test and ID to board the bus and then get your race bib at the start line.

  • You will not have to wear a mask when you run.

  • You will have to wear a mask when you ride the bus and when you pick up your race bib.

  • All Police, Firemen, and EMT's (First Responders) will have a special entry fee of $60 or all who register.

  • Those of you who  registered for 2020 have automatically been  transferred to  Oct 29-31, 2021.

  • If we have to cancel again your entry fee will be rolled over to the next year.

  • You also will have the option to transferring to the Maui Oceanfront Marathon which runs next time on January 16, 2022. Contact the Ring Master to do that.

  • Your entry fee will not be refunded if we have to cancel for any reason. It is easier for the runner to loose and entry fee than the Race to go bankrupt. We are a non profit event. And your Race Director works for free.

  • If you are concerned about a refund do not enter until late.

  • Below is the start of the 2019 Emerald Bay Half Marathon.
