Triple Marathon

 

Friday-Sunday 2019

 

The 19th Tahoe Triple Marathon (3 x 26.2) means 3 marathons for 3 consecutive days, in two states, finishing with the regular Lake Tahoe Marathon and festivities. This is a challenging multi-day run at altitude, circumnavigating the 72-mile shoreline of Lake Tahoe, plus an additional 6 mile overlap. The 3 courses include the Lakeside  Marathon  on Friday, the Cal-Neva Marathon  on Saturday, and the Lake Tahoe Marathon on Sunday. You may run anyone of these races a la carte.

 

Time limit on Friday and Saturday is 6 hours. An early start for slower anticipated finishers can be arranged. The event is limited to 200 runners.

 

You will be transported each morning from near the Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel to that day's start line, which will be near where you finished the day before.  Your support team will be needed for the ride home. If you come alone without support, you will need to arrange a ride after the race for Friday & Saturday. Sunday you will end up at Lakeside Beach, which is only 6 short blocks from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino . We will have a return shuttle bus on Fri & Sat for $12.

 

Awards & Swag

  • $500 and special award to first male and female open winners.  

  • Hardware for masters (40+) award for male & female winners

  • Finishers medal and finishers wind shirts for the regular marathon

  • Finishers license plate holder

  • Commemorative stand up plaque for all finishers showing the 3 different marathons

  • Special Triple Marathon racing singlet for all competitors 

  • Event T-shirt 

You may up the ante by choosing the Super Tahoe Triple option, which is the first 2 marathons on Friday and Saturday, plus the 72 mile Midnight Express Ultra starting on Saturday night. Usually 10-12 athletes do this each year.
