Squaw Valley Running

Squaw Valley Half Marathon Course Details

The Squaw Valley Half Marathon starts and finishes at the iconic Village At Squaw Valley, site of the historic 1960 Winter Olympics. The course is fast and flat, a scenic out and back featuring mainly paved trail through the valley and along the Truckee River. During the route keep an eye out for bald eagles, mule deer and trout leaping out of the river all while enjoying the cool, refreshing sierra air.

You will be supported by five aid stations along the course which will have water, electrolyte beverage and a variety of fruit and snacks.  At the finish we will have the music pumping, a selection of recovery foods and some ice cold beer and soda to celebrate your accomplishment.

Stick around to cheer on the other runners and relax in the Village while enjoying a perfect Squaw Sunday afternoon.  This one you will not want to miss and is certainly a Bucket List Half Marathon.
