From the organizer

The XTERRA Lake Tahoe 5k and 10k trail run happens on the same day as XTERRA Lake Tahoe Offroad Triathlon. The course starts and finishes at the Village Green in Incline Village, NV.

This is a large open grass community field. The event is set up and staged from here. From the starting area the course heads north and onto the great trail system featuring tall pines, aspens and creek crossings. Run one lap for the 5K or two for the 10K. The second lap starts right back in the venue creating a fun viewing area to cheer on the 10K participants.

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.
