Tahoe Rim Trail hosts 50k

The inaugural presentation of the Tahoe Rim Trail 50K/50M Ultra for trail runners will take place July 21 due to the hard work of the Tahoe Mountain Milers and Sagebrush Stompers Running Clubs. This special event will benefit the Tahoe Rim Trail and Nevada State Parks Maintenance Program. The event is under special use permit by Nevada State Parks.

The 50k and 50-mile events will start and finish at Spooner Lake State Park on the east side of Lake Tahoe. The 50-mile event is a Western States 100 qualifier. Online registration is available at RunEvent.com. Keith Facchino, one of the premiere online photographers in the ultra community, will join in the event. The course is run in high alpine country of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The point is 7,000 feet at Spooner Lake and the high point is Snow Valley Peak at 9,214 feet.

Volunteers are needed to pick up supplies, set up aid stations and work the aid stations. Volunteers with 4-wheel-drive trucks or SUVs are needed to deliver supplies to the aid stations. Medical personnel are needed at the course and at the finish line. Donations of food are needed at the finish line to replenish protein and carbohydrates. Beans and rice, soup and fruit are most welcome. This is the last big event to benefit the Tahoe Rim Trail before its completion in September. For more information or to volunteer contact David Cotter, race director, at (530) 542-4324. Check out the Web site at http://www.tahoemtmilers.org/trt50k50m.html.
