Running for over 25 years, the Lake Tahoe Marathon is a unique event that has runners skirt along some of the most beautiful sections of Lake Tahoe, on the California Nevada border. One of three races in the "Tahoe Triple" some runners will run the entire perimeter of lake Tahoe in the course of three days.

Lake Tahoe Marathon Training Plans

The race takes place on a Sunday in early October, arguably the best time to visit Lake Tahoe when the crowds are lighter, the weather is cool and the fall colors are out. While the scenery is fantastic, this isn’t likely a marathon that will deliver PRs with hilly / mountainous sections flanking the lake.

The Tahoe Marathon starts in Homewood and finishes on Lakeside beach in South Lake Tahoe. If you are really feeling up for a challenge, on Friday and Saturday, you can run two other marathons or half marathons each day; the Nevada Half Marathon & the Lakeside  Marathon on Friday, and the Cal-Neva Marathon & Carnelian Bay Half Marathon on Saturday. Regardless, you should make a weekend out of it with activities and attractions plentiful in the Lake Tahoe region.

Given the mountainous nature of the course and the temptation of other races on race weekend, a custom training plan can help you succeed and hit your goals for the Lake Tahoe Marathon.

Our method

  1. Certified Coaches

    With the expertise of USATF certified coaches and physical therapists, we built an advanced model to weigh the effects of runner-specific variables on training outcomes.

  2. Custom Race Profile

    We analyzed unique characteristics of hundreds of races across the country to build a “race profile” into our model that accounts for elevation gain, altitude, time of year, and more.

  3. Training Plan Model

    Our model generates a unique training plan for you and your race, and all plans are reviewed by a coach and hand-tweaked before they make their way to you.
