Event Details:

The Big Blue 5k and 10k trail run happens on the same day as XTERRA Lake Tahoe.  The course starts and finishes at the Village Green in Incline Village, NV.

This is a large open grass community field. The event is set up and staged from here. From the starting area the course heads north and onto the great trail system featuring tall pines, aspens and creek crossings. Run one lap for the 5K or two for the 10K. The second lap starts right back in the venue creating a fun viewing area to cheer on the 10K participants.

Bring the kids as this is a great venue for our shorter kids races for ages 4-12 years.
