Starting at the base of Squaw Valley (6200’), the course climbs the 3.6 mile Mountain Run to High Camp (8200’) where awards, raffle, music, light refreshments & beer from Fiftyfifty brewery in Truckee are provided. Participants can choose to RUN or take a more leisurely pace and HIKE, or Nordic walk (hike with poles). If you would like the Aerial Tram to do the elevation gain for you, sign up for the Flower Walk or Yoga for Life, both at High Camp. $500 cash prize split between top finishers!
Help Fight Cancer
For many, the event has become a way to celebrate life following personal struggles with cancer or in memory of a loved one who may have been less fortunate. Twenty percent of funds raised from the Squaw Mountain Run are donated to The Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation to fund programs and services for cancer patients at the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center. In the last six years since Auburn Ski Club took over the event, they have raised over $25,000 to support these efforts.
