For the past 41 years, hundreds of runners and hikers have made the annual pilgrimage to the top of Palisades for this unique running event with stunning views of Lake Tahoe and the High Sierra. Starting at the base of Palisades USA (6200’), the course climbs 3.6 miles up Mountain Run to High Camp (8200’) where awards, raffle, music, refreshments, and beer from Fiftyfifty Brewery (must have ID) in Truckee are provided.

*Please note: We are a cupless race – please bring your own water bottle or cup for the aid stations.


A BENEFIT FOR THE GENE UPSHAW MEMORIAL CANCER CENTER AND ASC’S SCHOLARSHIP FUND

HELP FIGHT CANCER

For many, this event has become a celebration of life following personal struggles with cancer or in memory of a loved one. There will be a flag at registration for those who wish to sign themselves or memorialize friends and family. The flag will be carried up by a volunteer participant. 50% of funds raised from the Palisades Mountain Run are donated to The Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation to fund programs and services for cancer patients at the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center.  In the years since Auburn Ski Club took over the event, we have raised over $25,000 to support these efforts.


EVENT SPECTATORS

Please join us at the top of the course for festivities and to support the Cancer Center and Auburn Ski Club. With the purchase of an event ticket, you can ride the 9:00am or 9:20am tram.  At the top you get a commemorative pint glass, entered in the raffle, beer (must have ID), food, live music, and the opportunity to cheer on your friends and family!  There will be no discounted tram tickets this year for event spectators. You must join the event and you can get a ride to the top. If you want to ride a later tram you can purchase a tram ticket from Palisades and ride up later. By participating in the event you support the cause and get to join in all the fun!
