Memorial race set for Sierra-at-Tahoe
March 13, 2006
The inaugural Ryan Shreve Memorial Firefighter Race will take place on Wednesday at Sierra-at-Tahoe. The race is named in honor of Ryan Shreve, a 1997 South Tahoe High graduate who became a paramedic and firefighter in the area.
Shreve died on Oct. 27, 2003 following a wakeboarding accident, but his legacy will live on this week.
The dual slalom race will start at 10:30 a.m. with a qualification run, then will be followed by a lunch break before the finals. The race, which is open to firefighters and paramedics, will take place on Aspen run, underneath the Rock Garden chairlift near the main base area.
The venue allows for spectator viewing. About 30 people have expressed an interest in participating in the race, but sign-ups are still being accepted. The cost is $50, which includes a daily lift ticket and race entry.
For more information or to secure your spot in the inaugural race, contact Mike Shreve at (530) 542-2036.
