On June 18-19, The Broken Arrow Sky Race, Presented by Salomon, will take to the trails above Squaw Valley. It seems fitting that Olympic Village will play host to the first-ever Skyrunning event in California. We are really psyched! Donner Party Mountain Runners are offered an exclusive 20% discount on registration – contact Helen (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) for your discount code.
The Broken Arrow Skyrace is modeled after the European Skyrunning events, which feature steep, technical terrain at altitude.
One of the things that makes trail running unique is that it’s not just about the elite field. Regular people doing amazing things have always been central to the culture of our sport. So come out and join us for some amazing races, a rad party and an opportunity to celebrate together with runners of all abilities. If you live and run in Tahoe, you already know how to successfully negotiate challenging mountain terrain. This will be a great opportunity to come on out to Squaw Valley for the weekend to challenge yourself in a race, spectate or just have a blast in the beautiful Olympic Valley.
We are delighted to be working with Brendan Madigan, owner of Alpenglow Sports in Tahoe City, to support what promises to be an off-the-hook gathering of our trail running community. We hope you will join us for a weekend of challenging mountain running, a film festival, delicious food, swag giveaways and great music.
Whether you are just dipping your toes into the world of mountain running or are a wily veteran, you are welcome! If you are interested in helping to establish a world-class mountain running event here in Lake Tahoe, please sign up or get in touch. We are putting something special together and we hope to see you all out there!
