From the organizer

Organizer's website

Both the Marlette 50K and 10 Miler are RRCA Nevada State Championship Events!

The Marlette 50K is a truly adventurous romp through some of planet earths most scenic and challenging trails. Based at Spooner Lake in Lake Tahoe Nevadas State Park the run features 30 miles of epic trail and view. Think prime Sierra single track and add in 360 degree panorama views of Lake Tahoe, the Carson Valley and Range. Marlette Lake lies in the middle of the course and if youre heating up during the run feel free to take a plunge.

Volunteering is a great way to support your racing habit. All volunteers (17yrs & 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.

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.

There is no age minimum, however if you are under then a parent or guardian need to sign a waiver for you to compete in the Trail Running Races.

    Did the 10 Miles in 2019

    It was a great event. Loved the course. The only problem is that I was put in the men's division instead of the women's on the result page. Nancy King. I think I would have gotten 3 rd in my age group

    Hi there. Unfortunately you can not park at Spooner Lake with an RV. You could try for something nearby. The best recommended spots are near the HWY 50 and HWY 28 intersection! :)
