The Fall Colors have begun. The temperatures have started dropping at night. On Highway 50 there are charred trees along the side off the road. Several cabins have only their fireplaces remaining.
South Lake Tahoe has charred trees in Xmas Valley but no homes were lost in South Lake Tahoe. The fire did come within 3/4 miles of my home. We were lucky the wind stopped and the 4900 firefighters stopped the fire in its tracks.
California has the best record for the fewest new Covid cases in the country. You must be vaccinated to pick up your race bib or a recent negative Covid test taken early in race week. You will be required to wear a mask to take our shuttle buses to the start line.
Once at the start line you may “Start When Ready” crossing the start mats. If you want to win the race outright you must start at the official start time.
The Tahoe 5K and Edgewood 10K and the Free Optimist Kids Fun Runs are back to running on Sunday, The little goblins will want to run in their costumes and will get a pumpkin when finished. They run right after the 5K and 10K.
