Tahoe Big Blue Adventure Race
Length: 8 hours
Location: Sierra Nevada and Lake Tahoe
Defined by both the incredible beauty of Lake Tahoe and the towering peaks of the High Sierra, North Lake Tahoe is one of the world’s most famous sporting playgrounds. The “North Shore” has an almost endless variety of spectacular mountain biking trails, adventurous hikes and, of course, waterborne activities on the “Big Blue” – Lake Tahoe – one of the largest, deepest and purest alpine lakes on earth.
The Tahoe Big Blue Adventure Race is a celebration of the natural environment of the North Shore, and the perfect climate of “Indian Summer.” September is a favorite month of Tahoe locals… and no wonder: daytime temperatures are in the 80’s with the evenings cooling into the 60’s, the skies are deep blue with only an occasional afternoon thunderstorm rolling through (to help keep the dust down on the trails!). This is a perfect time for a visit to the Big Blue.
The Tahoe Big Blue Adventure Race is a multi-sport event in which teams and individuals participate and compete in kayaking or stand up paddling, mountain biking, trail running, and navigation. Designed such that participating teams will complete in an 8 hour maximum time format. Teams travel on land and lake to gather as many checkpoints as possible and finish within the 8 hour time limit.
However, don’t take the Tahoe Big Blue lightly as the event starts out at 6200’ and heads up to 9000’ and will include challenging and steep terrain. No matter how long your adventure takes we promise to greet you with a smile as you cross the finish line and provide you with the great tastes of the Big Blue BBQ.
