On Saturday August 5, 2017, the Auburn Ski Club will host the Sierra Crest Ultra Run which is an exciting point-to-point trail run featuring 3 distances, 50k, 30k and 15k, that takes advantage of some of Truckee and Donner Summit’s best single track trails. All run distances begin at 6650 feet on the trails at Tahoe Donner’s Alder Creek Adventure Center, the 50k and 30k go uphill then across the Donner Lake Rim Trail and end on the trails at the Auburn Ski Club Training Center at 7200 feet. Plan for some uphill and downhill on this fun course with 4,660 ft gain and 4,125 ft loss for the 50k and 3,493 ft gain and 2,948 ft loss for the 30k.
This unique race offers spectacular views of the Sierra Crest and the Northern Sierras most spectacular terrain including Euer Valley, Frog Lake Cliffs, Donner Lake, Summit Lake, Castle Peak and the many other mountain peaks along the Sierra Crest. Fully stocked aid stations with the world’s best volunteers along all courses will be in place to keep runners well fueled.
