For the past 32 years, on the first Saturday of August, hundreds runners and hikers have made the annual pilgrimage to the top of Squaw Valley to enjoy a great workout with stunning views of Lake Tahoe and the High Sierra.

Starting at the base of Squaw Valley USA (6200’) the course climbs the 3.6 mile mountain run to High Camp (8200’) where awards, raffle, music, light refreshments & beer are provided.

 

 

 

 

Participants can choose to RUN or take a more leisurely pace and HIKE, or Nordic walk (hike with poles). For the less energetic – let the cable car do the 2000 foot elevation gain & join our knowledgeable guides for the beautiful FLOWER WALK on easy rolling terrain.

Help fight Cancer

For many the event has become a way to celebrate life following personal struggles with cancer or in memory of a loved one who may have been less fortunate.                                                                           GU Mem TF Cancer Centertagtfhs

There will be a flag at registration for those who wish to sign, and write names of loved ones. The flag will be carried up by a volunteer participant and we will hold a short prayer ceremony at the Awards ceremony.

20% of funds raised from The Squaw Mountain Run are donated to The Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation to help local cancer patients afford the care they need.

In the last five years since Auburn Ski Club took over the event – we have  raised almost $10,000 for the Foundation.

We need help at registration, at feed stations and at High Camp. Please m.seifert@assoc.auburnskiclub.org if you can help.
