Ultra Adventures

As most of you know Rob and Donald are on the road heading down to Lake Tahoe to do a 100 Mile ultra – race.  Here is the info on the course from Donald’s blog

This Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs take place on high elevation alpine and sub-alpine forest trails and dirt roads in the Carson Spur of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The event is located on the northeast side of Lake Tahoe. All distances begin and end at the Spooner Lake State Park, which is at 7,000 feet. The highest point of the event is just below the 9,214 foot Snow Valley Peak (which also provides one of the best views on the course). The low point on both courses is at the bottom of the now “infamous” Red House Loop (A Taste of Hell) at approximately 6800 feet.

With the new TRT/Incline Creek/Diamond Peak loop that was added this year it appears that the 100-mile course is now a little under 24,000 feet elevation gain and loss!
