This is one of the all time classic XTERRA courses. Racers start with a swim in famous Lake Tahoe, one of the purest and deepest lakes in North America. The bike section test racers’ climbing and fitness levels. The bike starts up tunnel creek, a somewhat sandy gradual climb. Racers pop out from tunnel creek onto the area’s famous Flume Trail, which skirts the mountain side overlooking Lake Tahoe. Riders continue on past Marlette Lake and down a rocky and fast Tahoe Rim Trail. The views are breathtaking!  Both the Short and Long course complete the 22 mile bike with approximately 4000 feet of climbing. After the biking section racers transition onto a trail running course that is relatively flat, fast and scenic with tall pines, aspens, and creek crossings.

 

 

Course Distance: 
      Full Course: 2X 750 meter swim laps with a 50 meter beach run, 22 mile bike, 6 mile run
 
On average the first place finishers complete the course in just under 3hrs for males and just above 3hrs for women. 
 
For Lake Tahoe water temperatures, we have found the following link, from UC Davis (who does research in the area) to be a good resource with up-to-date water temperature.  One note to consider however, is their temperatures may be a bit colder than what a swimmer would feel on the surface.
