The cost of the race is $80 through March 3rd ($30 if under 18); $90 on March 4-5 ($40 if under 18); and $120 if registering on race day ($60 if under 18). All race fees are non-refundable. Your entry fee buys you refreshments and hot lunch plus live music and dancing at the finish!
Donations above and beyond these amounts to the Tahoe Nordic Search & Rescue Team are always appreciated (all donations above and beyond race fees are tax-deductible; non-profit tax ID #94-2737988).
While you can register the day of the race, it’s highly recommended that you register in advance. On the Friday (12:00 PM – 5:00 PM) and Saturday (9:00 AM – 5:00 PM) before the race, and Sunday (race day) up until 8:30 AM, you can pick up your pre-race package at the Tahoe Cross Country ski area.
The start field is divided into wave starts. Wave 1 starts at 9:00AM sharp and the subsequent waves start at 3 minute intervals after that. When registering you will be asked to specify which wave you would like to start in.
Categories & Prizes
