Donner Lake Half 70.4

Swim: The swim courses are rectangular-shaped courses in Donner Lake. Bike: The bike course takes place on Old Highway 40. The entire course is paved. The Half bike course is 56 miles. The course continues 4 miles past the Olympic turnaround point. From the far end of the course, near Cisco Grove, you will ride a 12 mile out and back section. Once you reach the far end of the course the second time you head back to the transition area. Cyclists start their ride with a climb up to the top of Donner Pass (about 1125’). This portion, first and last 4 miles, of the bike course is closed to all vehicular traffic (except emergency vehicles). Upon reaching the pass you will have a great view of Donner Lake and the Truckee Valley. You continue westbound along Old Highway 40, passing Sugar Bowl and Donner Ski Ranch, cabins, ponds and other wonderful scenery. This portion of the course is relatively flat with small rolling hills. Upon reaching I-80, you will cross over the freeway and continue past Kingvale, and towards Cisco Grove. This portion of the course is surrounded by trees and you can often glimpse the South Yuba River. The turn-a-round point will include an aid station where you can toss your water bottle in exchange for a new one (either filled with water or fluid replacement). The course concludes with a curvy and speedy descent down Scenic Old Highway 40 where we remind you to use extreme caution. Run: The Half run course is two laps of the Olympic course
