The CAL-Neva Marathon and the Nevada Half Marathon start together with the Half Marathon ending half way down the course in Incline Village while the Cal Neva Marathon continues on to Tahoe City and finishes on Commons Beach.

Buses will take you to the start lines, but you are responsible for your own post race transportation. A support crew is strongly suggested for your transportation needs, encouragement, nutrition and picture taking.

The Saturday Cal-Neva Marathon is the fastest of the 3 marathons with the first 11 mile basically down hill from the start in the parking lot at the intersection of H50 & H28 and running north to Incline Village. The Cal Neva Marathon ends in Tahoe City above Commons Beach. The first half of the Marathon is in Nevada and the second half is in California. The Nevada Half Marathon ends at the north end of Lakeshore Blvd in Incline Village. The views of of each of these races are incredible. The Cal-Neva Marathon and Nevada Half start at about 7000' and end  at lake level near 6230'.

The Friday and Saturday Marathons are each run basically half in CA and half in NV. Either of these races can be counted for either state in your quest to run all 50 states.

These two marathon and half marathons are part of the  Triple Marathoner or the Tahoe Trifecta . There is a different finishers medals for each race, each day, finishers license plate holders and tech shirts will be awarded. There is an overall award for each of these races, but no age division or other  awards will be given to these boutique races. And finishers who complete all three receive a special finishers award.

There will be at  least six Aid Stations along both marathon routes Aid stations are approximately every 5 miles.

Post Race transportation is not included. You will need transportation after the Friday and Saturday Marathons.

The race shuttle buses will leave from near the Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel race morning to the start lines. You will need to arrange your own transportation after the run.
