We here at Alpenglow and Tahoe XC are excited for Summer! So much so that we are going to “guarantee” that it will snow soon by hosting a Running Race instead of the Alpenglow 20km.

So, at this time, the ski race is ‘off’ and Alpenglow and TXC will be hosting the Alpenglow 2km, 5km, and 10km running/hiking/walking Event on Sunday, 26 January. Please note: Phun is mandatory and “Make it Snow” costumes are encouraged. BBQ and Awards to follow at TXC as usual.

Race start at 10am with 2km and 5km laps.

Please plan to attend and bring all your friends. If we cannot ski we may as well embrace the conditions!

*Please note, if it does happen to snow enough to host the ski race at the last minute we will do so on a course that best matches the conditions and terrain available.
