Emerald Bay Half Marathon

sponsored by the Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel

 

Sunday

 

Pick up your race number  Saturday at The Landing. Shuttle Buses leave from Stateline Transit Center next to Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel  (check the back of your race number for the shuttle bus schedule).  No need for post-race shuttle bus because you finish 5 or so blocks from the Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel. Park your car at Mont Bleu or Hard Rock Casino for free parking. Harrahs and Harveys now charge to park 24/7. 

 

Maybe the most beautiful race in the world

The starting point is near Inspiration Point at the top of Emerald Bay, providing a downhill race. This new course has eliminated the dreadful "Hills from Hell." It now departs at the same spot where Meg Ryan bikes down the narrow spine of the ridge overlooking Emerald Bay, Cascade Lake, and Lake Tahoe in the movie "City of Angels." This may be the most beautiful run you ever do.

 

The first 3 miles are all down hill, until you reach Taylor Creek Bridge where you will cross over the spawning fire cracker red Kokanee salmon (pictured left), by the Pope and Valhalla Historical Estates, by Camp Richardson, continue on into Tahoe Keys and the city of South Lake Tahoe and run the bike paths all the way to Lakeside Beach just past the Casino corridor. A cold beer, hot dog, finishers medal, and music await you on our beach side finish line. There are aid stations every mile to cheer and pamper you. Pick up your included travel bag and long sleeve t-shirt at the expo, only.
