Freakin’ Fun Run on Sunday
The first of three family races in a new series called Run Through The Holidays will hit the South Shore on Sunday.
The first annual Tahoe’s Freakin’ Fun Run will be held Sunday at Lake Tahoe Community College fields located at 1300 Al Tahoe Blvd. The Fun Run will begin at 10 a.m. and participants are encouraged to dress in Halloween attire with prizes for Best Costume and Most Ridiculous Costume being awarded. Registration begins at 8 a.m.
The Tahoe Tri Club teamed up with the City of South Lake Tahoe to host the three races, which will be themed to match each of the approaching holidays.
All three events will offer a 1K fun run for children ages 3-13 years old, a 5K and a 10K run for all ages and ability levels. Prizes will be awarded for “best costume” and “most challenging to run in” along with other fun awards like the “hydra” category where three or more participants have to be physically connected for the entire race.
The second run, named the South Tahoe Turkey Trot, will be held on Nov. 17. The Turkey Trot has been a South Shore tradition for more than 25 years. This event will kick off with 8 a.m. registration followed by a 10 a.m. run at Bijou Community Park.
The series will wrap up with the Jingle Jog Hot Chocolate Run where participants will show their holiday spirit and receive a commemorative mug of hot cocoa as they cross the finish line. Registration opens at 8 a.m., and the race starts at 10 a.m. on Dec. 15 at Lakeview Commons.
