The third annual Great Trail Race returns on Sunday, Oct. 7, and will feature more than 200 athletes competing in mountain bike and trail racing in race organizer Big Blue Adventure's final event of the 2018 season.
The annual race benefits Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue, which has conducted rescue missions throughout California and Nevada since 1976, and educates the public on winter safety. Last year the race brought in $2,250 for Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue.
The point-to-point race will take mountain bikers and runners on distances of either 17.9 or 21.5 miles on single-track trails and fire roads from Tahoe City to the finish line in Truckee.
Registration for the event is $80 if done online by Oct. 6, and increases by $10 for onsite registration. There are also options for team racing. For more information visit GreatTrailRace.com
