The Burton Creek Trail Run takes place on a beautiful, fun and challenging trail system within Burton Creek State Park near Tahoe City, CA. The course features miles of single track through pine forests and high sierra meadows.

Burton Creek drains the runoff from Mt. Watson into Lake Tahoe. Youll see and hear the creek often and June is a great wildflower time of year as well. Choose between from the 6K, 12K, or Half Marathon. The Burton Creek Half Marathon is one of the best Lake Tahoe Half Marathons. Also bring the kids as we offer age appropriate distance kids races for those 4 and older.

Volunteers

Volunteering FAQs:

  • What should I wear to volunteer?

For your time and effort, you’ll receive a great T-shirt! We want you to wear it while you’re helping out so that you are easily identifiable to racers and crews. Also, don't forget the sunscreen, the July weather in Northstar California can get HOT.

  • Can I bring my family, friend, neighbor or co-worker?

The more the merrier! To help with appropriate staffing, it's best to know numbers in advance, so please register anyone who is volunteering. Although we'll never turn away great help! Volunteers you bring may donate hours to you, the racer. However you must volunteer as well in order for them to donate hours toward your lottery preference. We will be unable to accept volunteer hours from others to you if you have not volunteered.

  • How long should I plan to help?

Some assignments will require a strong commitment of particular hours. Just let us know what you can do and we'll make the most appropriate assignment.

  • What should I do if I cannot make it?

Just let us know. We recognize that there are unforeseeable circumstances, but if you're able to send a quick email or give us a call we can adjust.
