What you need to know about Marathon Running

The marathon is the benchmark for any runner. Its history stretches back to the Ancient Greeks, and it now includes all the world’s most iconic running races. At 26.2 miles, it’s a massive test of physical and mental resilience. If it’s a PB you’re after, you can choose a fast, flat city course, or else go for a more challenging trail run in one of the world’s most stunning locations.

Think a marathon might be pushing it? Why not ease yourself in with a 5k or 10k run instead?

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.
