The Finish

Party and Prizes

The party at the end is famous. The food and beer at the end of the trail, outside the Cottonwood Restaurant on the Hilltop in Truckee, are served in a festive atmosphere that includes live music and dancing in what, if you’re lucky, will be a day of warm Sierra sunshine. Best of all, the entire shindig is a benefit for an incredibly deserving organization, the Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue Team.

To celebrate the epic conditions and the race’s 40th anniversary, the red-hot rockin’ band The Blues Monsters will be playing at the finish line. Voted the number one blues band in North Lake Tahoe for 7 years running, The Blues Monsters are a local favorite, known for their unique blend of R&B, funk, jazz, and Chicago-style blues.
