History of the Lake Tahoe Marathon


The first Lake Tahoe Marathon operated by our Ring Leader, Les Wright was run from Fanny Bridge in Tahoe City to Emerald Motel at the South Lake Tahoe city limits. There was no wonderful Expo. 


Earliest Documentation

An earlier version of the Lake Tahoe Marathon was run for 7-8 years in the late 70's and early 80's, operated by Skip Youngdahl, Reg Bedell, and Chuck Lancaster. It was run from Incline Village up Spooner Summit and back. We are looking for documentation of results, old race brochures, t-shirts, etc. If you have any information, please email or call us at (530) 559-2261.


Thanks to Fred Durban for 1978, 79, and 82 Results.

We are also looking for results of the Pepsi 72-Mile Ultra from earlier years.
