About this Event

The Virtual River Run Series is your get off the couch support local social distancing summer adventure! Three challenges. Three charities. One ultimate goal. Do you have what it takes to hit the Truckee Trifecta 222? This is summer. It’s time to go big.

The Virtual River Run Series is all about doing something positive for yourself and for local businesses while supporting non-profits that help our community. Participating is easy! Choose your challenge and then get moving. Go at your own pace in your own home or neighborhood. You can run, jog, walk, bike, skip, or crawl. You can do it on your home treadmill or stationary bike, around your neighborhood or local trails, or just by doing laps inside your house. You get the point. It’s your choice! Depending on your chosen challenge, you can complete it in a day or spread it out over a week or a couple of months. You track your own progress, and your completion is based on an honors system. When you’re finished, let us know, and we’ll send you an awesome medal and a donation to the coordinating charity of the challenge of your choice!

Choose Your Challenge


The Distance Across Pyramid Lake

Upon Completion: Custom Cutthroat Medal

Fittingly named after the infamous trophy fish, this challenge is the equivalent of running across Pyramid Lake. This challenge can be completed in one shot for the seriously experienced runner or spread out over several days or weeks depending on your schedule.

Benefits: The Food Bank of Northern Nevada


The Distance Around Lake Tahoe

Upon Completion: Custom Tahoe Tessie Medal

Named after our region’s social distancing champion! This challenge is the equivalent of running all the way around North America’s largest alpine lake. Is that the smell of mountain air or victory? It’s Lake Tahoe. It’s both.

Benefits: The Nevada Humane Society


The Distance of the Truckee River

Upon Completion: Custom Full Truckee Medal

This challenge is the full length of our river – from Lake Tahoe all the way into Pyramid Lake. You’ll definitely have to spread this out, but it’s not as daunting as it may seem. If you run, jog, walk, or bike roughly four miles a day, you will complete the Full Truckee in a month. That averages out to about an hour or a couple of sitcom episodes a day.

Benefits: Feed Our Heroes


Across Pyramid, Around Tahoe, and the Length of the Truckee

Upon Completion: Cutthroat Medal, Tahoe Tessie Medal, and Full Truckee Medal PLUS a limited-edition Truckee Trifecta Trophy

Exclusive T-Shirt Add-On: $25

This is for all the bragging rights and one epic trophy. To earn the Truckee Trifecta, you have to complete all three challenges – the Cutthroat, the Tessie, and the Full Truckee. That’s 222 miles. That’s going big. And that comes with some serious benefits. When you sign-up for the Truckee Trifecta, you’ll get a discounted price on all three challenges, have the option to add a limited-edition t-shirt to your order, plus have the motivation of earning three custom medals and a limited-edition trophy. If that’s not enough motivation, how about this: you’ll be supporting three amazing, local non-profits!

Once you sign-up, join our Virtual River Run Community! Share your journey, motivate others, build each other up, and maybe even make some new friends.
