Arguably the most beautiful marathon in the world, the Lake Tahoe Marathon takes you from Tahoe City (North Shore) to Pope Beach (South Shore) - caressing the West Shore of the Lake along the route. The first 12 miles are surprisingly flat and fast. At mile 12 you hit the first of three climbs (Cat 5 climb) which will take you to Rubicon Bay where the Half Marathon runners will be eagerly waiting. You can pick up the pace with your new running buddies and enjoy a 200 ft descent before ascending up to DL Bliss State Park (Cat 4 climb).
The Lake Tahoe Marathon will have aid stations every two miles.
Pre-race shuttle buses will leave from the Stateline Bus Depot (near the Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel) to the start lines.
