Lake Tahoe Relay Race
runners will once again run counter-clockwise around Lake Tahoe in the 55th annual DeCelle Memorial Lake Tahoe Relay. Considered to be the oldest relay race in the country, the Lake Tahoe Relay began as a New Year's gag by a group of college runners in 1959, grew into a tribute to a beloved son, and has evolved over decades as a family's labor of love. With altitudes up to 6,500 ft. on the 72-mile course around scenic Lake Tahoe, this race is as fun as it is challenging.
The Lake Tahoe Relay teams consist of 7 people, each running approximately 8 to 12 miles. All runners will have the same team number pinned on the front of their shirt. Course closes at 8:00 p.m. Runners will be asked to leave the course after 8:00 p.m. for their own safety.
