Amidst all the uncertainty surrounding our lives and with races cancelling races up into June, we at TRTER are closely monitoring the situation with the intention of having a race July 18-19, 2020. That decision may be taken out of our hands depending on what State of Nevada and local governments have for restrictions during that time frame.
I certainly hope that is not the case in July and the world has this pandemic in it’s rearview mirror. I want to update you on what TRTER is doing and intends on doing if the race is cancelled.
We are suspending all wait list additions until we know for sure we have a green light for the race to go on.
If cancelled, TRTER will refund 75% of the race entry fee:
- 100 Mile – $217.50
- 50 Mile – $116.25
- 55K – $101.25
Because credit card companies and banks only allow merchants to refund a credit card for approximately 90-days after a transaction, refunds will be issued by check and mailed to you.
As stated in the fees section of the website, we will not offer rollovers.
Again, we will do everything in our power to see this race happens, however as with many races that have already cancelled it was completely out of their control.

Everyone get on the bus! No additional purchase necessary. If you are running the race, we have a seat reserved on the bus for you.

The Tahoe Rim Trail 55K/50M/100M Endurance Runs is a beneficiary event with all net proceeds donated equally between to the Tahoe Rim Trail Association’s trail maintenance program, the Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park’s backcountry mountain bike patrol and other supportive organizations. Tahoe Mountain Milers Running Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We do not make any profit from this event. All supplies, food product, clothing items, awards, signs and other items that are not part of a sponsorship contribution are purchased prior to the event in numbers adequate to accommodate the total number of possible registrants. If unlimited refunds were issued they would result in either a direct loss to our clubs’ coffers and/or would reduce the final contribution to our beneficiaries. In addition, we would end up with non-refundable products and perishable items.
PLEASE NOTE: The Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs have filled early the past four years and many interested runners were placed on the event’s waiting list in hope they would be able to run. Out of courtesy to your fellow runners PLEASE let us know in advance if you are not able to attend so others can fill the vacant slot. Registered runners who DNS (do not show) AND DNC (do not call) without valid, acceptable excuse MAY risk not being able to participate the following year. We sincerely hope you understand our decision.
