Tahoe Training Weekend
Friday, Jul. 08 to Sunday, Jul. 10, 2022
Truckee, CA

Hello, this Miguel Mendoza, I have the privilege to host Tahoe training weekend this year. I hope to offer an exiting weekend of training, socializing, and fun this year. I plan to break up the training plan by day and finish up with the logistics. My suggestion is rent house for the weekend to get most of North Lake Tahoe experience. We also plan to have social event at our place in Truckee.

Carpool and house-sharing signup!

Friday Travel from your location to Truckee, CA. I strongly suggest to carpool. I will let someone organize some google spreadsheet to setup carpool list. Any volunteers? For those who might show up earlier time, I strongly suggest showing up early to beat the Friday evening summer traffic, we will have social at Downtown at the Old Town Tap starting 5pm. This will give us chance to unwind and get acclimated summer Tahoe weather and enjoy Truckee’s downtown social scene.

Saturday Let’s plan to meet at 9 am at Donner West End Beach. It’s $12 per adult, unfortunately no dogs, no smoking, and no glass. The beach should allow us to swim with no wetsuits but bring your wetsuit just in case; the lake filled up by the snow melt (“mucho frio”).
The goal is setup swim bike transition by no later 9:30 am, and plan to get into the water by no later than 9:45am. This will help us keep us on track as the day will get hot by middle of the day.

We have a few ride options to cater to your target milage. You can download the GPX file is you like from Strava website.

Cool down at the west end bridge. Bring your cooler, lunch, and drinks to enjoy the cool down. Other option is The Pub at Donner Lake. Great food and drink with outside seating.

Social at Chalet Julie We'll be hosting a social at our place in Tahoe Donner starting at 6 pm. This will be potluck event, bring your own drink and food to share. I have grill, If you like to bring some meats or veggies to grill up. I share our address to the distribution list.

Sunday Trail running at Tahoe Donner (TD). We will meet the TD adventure center. Plenty of parking and there is pub onsite so we can cool down after the run. TD trails offer over 60 miles trail system, so we have many options for runs. It is very popular mountain bike destination, so we stay in fair roads to minimize crowding on the single-track trails.

Let’s plan to meet at 10 am. We will start our run at 10:30am Below are our options to meet your mileage target.
