XTERRA Tahoe City
XTERRA Tahoe City races celebrate the natural environment of Lake Tahoe’s excellent terrain, trails and blue water.
This is the all-time classic off-road triathlon course. Triathletes and Aquabikers will start from a new location at Sand Harbor State Park in Lake Tahoe, one of the purest and deepest lakes in North America.
The bike section tests racers’ skill and fitness levels. The bike will start from Sand Harbor and ride the road to Tunnel Creek, where the real MTB fun begins with a somewhat sandy gradual climb. Racers pop out from Tunnel Creek onto the area’s epic Flume Trail, which skirts the mountainside overlooking Lake Tahoe. Riders continue on past Marlette Lake and down a somewhat rocky and fast Tahoe Rim Trail. The views are breathtaking! The full course, Sprint, and Aquabike complete the 22-mile bike with approximately 4000 feet of climbing.
The running course is a 5K lap featuring a relatively flat scenic course winding through aspens, pines with a few creek crossings.
