The Riverview Sports Park is located about two hours drive Sacramento going east along Route 80 and forty minutes from Reno going in the opposite direction. If you're willing to stomach a longer commute, it's a four-hour trip on the California Zephyr train and the Highway 267 bus.


Volunteering is a great way to support your racing habit. All volunteers (17 yrs & older) earn $10/hr of racing credit that can be applied to any ASW event or Big Blue Adventure event. After you volunteer at an event, you will receive an email including your unique volunteer code. This code will allow you to apply your credits earned when you register for your next race online. Make sure to head to the Truckee Running website if you're interested in volunteering!

If you are part of a club or group, we have a special partnership program which includes special discounts, free race entries, and depending on the type of organization, financial donations.
