Description

Presented by:


Tahoe Mountain Sports and Donner Party Mountain Runners present the 2017 Memorial Day Picnic and Group Runs! New and improved location and later start time this year. As part of their support for the Annual Picnic, Tahoe Mountain Sports will be on hand at the start of each group run to offer FREE Salomon and The North Face demo running shoes so you can test out some of the coolest and newest in trail shoes.....right on the trail!

  • Monday, May 29, 2017, Group Runs (beginning at 11:30am) followed by Picnic at 3:00pm and Kids' Race at 3:30pm
  • Prosser Ranch Group Campground

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 3:30pm.

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

The Schedule - please RSVP:

(all group runs leave the NEW picnic site ~Prosser Ranch Group~ at the times posted below - please arrive extra early if you want to demo shoes!)
