With spring already here, and summer close behind, the trail running season in Lake Tahoe is already well underway.
Spring and summer races will be here before you know it. Add a little high altitude training to your workout to get a leg up on your competitors - or just get your heart racing a little faster.
The trails that surround Resort at Squaw Creek are legendary among trail runners and ultra runners alike - the Western States trail leaves practically from our doorstep. The paved Truckee River trail is another you can jump on straight from the resort - a level 8 miles to Tahoe City along the river. Other gorgeous trails, like the Rubicon trail along Lake Tahoe to Emerald Bay, or the Burton Creek trail are close by.
Competitive runners should check out the Tahoe Trail Running series. With 11 events that span early June through late September, the series offers runs from 5k to 50k. All levels of athletes are welcome.
And when you're back from your run, check out the Sports Massage at Spa at Squaw Creek - designed to help flush impurities, stretch tight muscles and aid in speedy recoveries. Excellent right before or after exercise.
