Ironman Lake Tahoe
The swim is two counter clockwise loops. It will start on Kings Beach on the west side of the pier and then each loop will finish on the east side of the pier. There will be a very short beach run between the two loops. A lakeside transition and the start of the bike course bring riders along the shore with spectacular views down the 21-mile length of the Lake as riders enter Tahoe City. Riders race through the Truckee River corridor, following the Truckee River past Squaw Valley and into the town of Truckee. Here the course turns south back toward the Lake, rolling past Northstar California and the start of the climb to Brockway Summit at 7,200 foot elevation. With a transition at Squaw Valley, home to the 1960 Winter Olympics, the runners will proceed back up the Truckee River corridor along the Truckee River bike path. Athletes will be treated to a relatively flat course along one of the most scenic stretches in world before returning back to Squaw Valley and the satisfying finish of IRONMAN Lake Tahoe.
