|Before July 4th||July 5th-July 27th||July 28th||Day of Race|
For the past 36 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 from Fiftyfifty brewery in Truckee 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 2,000 foot elevation gain & join TINS knowledgeable guides for the beautiful FLOWER WALK on easy rolling terrain.
You can buy a Squaw Mountain Run Tech Shirt or Head Sweats hat for $20 at the race registration at Tahoe Mt. Sports or at Squaw. Sorry, we don’t take any pre-orders. We will have lots of different colors to choose from in Men’s and Women’s sizes and a few kids sizes. First come first serve.
Flower Walk with Tahoe Institute for Natural Science
For the less energetic or those inclined to learn more about nature! – Signing up for our Flower walk gets you a tram ride up to High Camp (tram ticket included in your entry) & a knowledgeable guide, Michelle Witte, from TINS, to show you what and where the best flowers are. The blooms are usually spectacular this time of year. As a participant you are also entered into the raffle and get a souvenir beer mug. Registration is the same as the race – just check the flower walk option on the reg form & check in at the flower walk/spectator tickets table to get your free cable car ticket. The group will meet Michelle at the bottom of the Tram and take the 9am tram up to the top together.
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.
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.Twenty percent of funds raised from The Squaw 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 last six years since Auburn Ski Club took over the event – we have raised over $25,000 to support these efforts.
