The Truckee Marathon course truly showcases the majestic and diverse beauty of Truckee and its surroundings. The marathon and half marathon start simultaneously in Historic Downtown Truckee. Quickly after the start the course heads west and circumnavigates Donner Lake. At the 11 mile mark youll face the toughest climb of the course heading up Northwoods Blvd. The final mile or so of the half is a down slope on the brand new Trout Creek Trail. A great place to view the event is at the main venue as the half finishes, the marathon continues and the relay teams tag-off.

Marathoners and relay teams continue to the eastern part of the course on a scenic section of single-track towards Grays Crossing and Old Greenwood. With majestic views of Mt. Rose and the surrounding sagebrush landscape runners continue towards Glenshire before turning onto the Legacy Trail along the Truckee River. Runners then follow this this trail back in to town where the finish celebration will be in full swing.
