Fresh Tracks 5K Snowshoe Walk and Race back at Camp Richardson
First-time snowshoers are encouraged to join in walk and race at Camp Richardson Historic Resort & Marina this weekend.
The Tahoe Mountain Milers Running Club will host the annual Fresh Tracks 5K Snowshoe Walk and Race this Sunday, Feb. 28.
The course consists of a machine-groomed path through forests and meadows and includes some short, moderate climbs.
“Over the meadow and through the woods, you will enjoy a winter wonderland course whether you want to run or walk on the trails near beautiful Lake Tahoe,” according to a description of the event from organizers.
The event is a memorial for Eric Nageotte, a South Lake Tahoe moguls skier who was killed in a skiing accident in New Zealand in 2004. The event also benefits Girls On The Run – Sierras and ending metastatic breast cancer in honor of Mountain Miler Rene Gorevin.
The race starts at 10 a.m. Awards will be given to top finishers in a variety of age categories. A post-race party follows the walk and race.
Day-of-race registration is $30 and will take place at Richardson’s Ice Cream Parlor next to the Mountain Sports Center.
Entry forms are also available at Kahle Community Center, South Lake Tahoe Recreation Center, Reno Running Company, Eclipse Sports and CV Sports in Carson City.
People who need snowshoes are encouraged to arrive early to get fitted. Participants are encouraged to park along Jameson Beach Road and not in the Mountain Sports Center parking lot.
