Tahoe Donner’s Alder Creek Adventure Center



The 30k and 50k races are point-to-point trail runs taking advantage of the best single track dirt trails between Truckee & Donner Summit. The courses offer scenic views of some of the Northern Sierra’s most stunning terrain, including Euer Valley, Frog Lake Cliffs, Summit Lake, Castle Peak, and other beautiful peaks of the Sierra Crest.

The 30k and 50k routes cross over the crest of the Sierra Nevada offering runners a fun, challenging high altitude route, with plenty of dirt, rock, forest and elevation change.

The 15k Run starts, and finishes at Tahoe Donner’s Adventure Center.  The course follows most of the first stage of the Sierra Crest 50km Ultra Run down to and around the beautiful Euer Valley.


The 30k & 50k runs start at Tahoe Donner’s Alder Creek Adventure Center (15275 Alder Creek Road, Truckee, Ca), and finish at the Auburn Ski Club Training Center, at the far western end of the Boreal Mountain Resort parking lot. An early morning shuttle ride ($15 per person) from the finish to the start can help runners keep the logistics easy.

The 50k race has 4,660 ft elevation gain and 4,125 ft elevation loss.  The 30k has 3,493 ft elevation gain and 2,948 ft elevation loss.
