Between cycling up high mountains, running strides along the lakeshore, and taking plunges in those deep blue waters, South Lake Tahoe is a mecca for all things active.
It’s time to register and start training for a couple big summer events: Rock Tahoe Half Marathon and America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride – Lake Tahoe.
Rock Tahoe Half Marathon
When: Saturday, June 17th, 2017
What: This 13.1 mile run weaves through the forested eastern shoreline of Lake Tahoe, starting at Spooner Summit and finishing at stateline’s Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. With gorgeous lake views, completely clear bike paths, and a massive party at the finish line, this race has it all.

The home has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a large HDTV and gas fireplace to curl up and recover in front of, a deck to enjoy a much-deserved cocktail on after the race, and a shuffleboard table in the living room to keep the fun going after you’ve recovered.
