Camp Richardson hosting Eric Nageotte Memorial 5k race this Sunday

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — There is not a snowflake on the trail at Camp Richardson this year, so the Tahoe Mountain Milers Running Club will be hosting a trail walk and race on Sunday instead of a snowshoe event. Snow dance anyone?

The temperature will cool down a bit for the morning, so attendees are encouraged to dress appropriately. A fire pit will be going at the event.

Tahoe Mountain Milers Running Club has been hosting a snowshoe event for the past 16 years. When Eric Nageotte died, the club decided to designate the Eric Nageotte-Lowe Scholarship Fund as the beneficiary for this event and rename it the Eric Nageotte Memorial 5k Snowshoe Race.

The club is so blessed to have an event that will keep the scholarship fund going in Eric’s memory — last year it helped pay for new uniforms for the whole team and coaches. Sho Kashima, friend and teammate of Eric, is currently on the U.S. Ski “A” team and has benefited from the fund. Jay Panther and Taryn Baker received funds last year to help accomplish their dreams.

Last year TMMRC added Girls on the Run Sierras as a beneficiary. Girls on the Run is a local program in our schools that is growing for girls in the third through fifth grades.

The club has swag left over from previous years that will be first come, first served. It will be barbecuing sausages along with other post-race refreshments, veggie chili, fruit, cookies, and cocoa — it’s a party.

Online registration is available at, which also has a form you can mail in. Registration is $25 through Friday and $30 on race day.

Those that cannot attend or participate in the event are encouraged to pass the information along or volunteer on race day. Call (775) 588-2864 or email for more info.
