Kids Super Hero runs at Lakeside Beach Oct. 10
Lake Tahoe Marathon and South Lake Tahoe Optimist Club are holding a pair of free runs on Saturday, Oct. 10 at Lakeside Beach. The Kids Super Hero Pumpkin Fun Run for ages 1 to 10 will start at 10:30 a.m. with the Super Hero 5K for ages 10 and older afterward.
The Kids Super Hero Pumpkin Fun Run begins at 10:30 a.m., a free race for ages 1 to 10. Course distances are age-appropriate from 50 yards to sixth-tenths of a mile, and racers will receive a free souvenir bib, hot dog and drink — and a free pumpkin if they register in advance.
The Super Hero 5K will start following the fun run, at approximately 11:15 a.m. Finishers win a medal with a pumpkin design, all entries receive a T-shirt, and a prize will be awarded for the best costume — runners in costume will receive a one-minute head start.
Both races start at Beach House Grill, located below the Stateline casinos at 4081 Lakeshore Blvd. For more information or to register online, visit secure.marathonguide.com/register/laketahoemarathon.
