Tahoe Mountain Sports, On Running and Donner Party Mountain Runners present the 5th Annual Memorial Day Picnic and Group Runs! As part of their support for the Annual Picnic, Tahoe Mountain Sports and On Running will be on hand for the last two group runs (and the rest of the picnic) to offer FREE demo running shoes so you can test out some of the coolest and newest in trail shoes.....right on the trail!

  • Monday, May 27, 2019
    Group Runs (beginning at 8:00am - see below)
    Picnic at 11:00am
    Kids' Race at 12:00pm

The gist:

It's free and you don’t need to be a member ~ just show up. RSVP is greatly appreciated (CLICK "REGISTER" to RSVP.) If your plans are up in the air, no worries, we understand. Just show up!

Bring your peeps! This is a friend-raiser, so bring your friends, family, and especially the kids. We will hold several group runs before the picnic starts. Free kids races start at 12:00pm.

We will have a table for a free gear swap – so bring your gently used, clean running gear and exchange it for something else!
