The Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows Foundation (SVAMF) is hosting the annual 10k run (or walk) from Squaw Valley to Alpine Meadows on Saturday, August 22 to raise funds to support athletes on the Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows snow sports teams.
You can run with your dog too.
The challenge is open to runners and walkers, as well as to dogs for those who register in the “Pets and People” category. All proceeds from the race will benefit SVAMF as well as the Humane Society of Truckee Tahoe.
SVAMF is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting young amateur athletes interested in developing skills in snow sports in a Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows competitive or non-competitive ski or snowboard team.
This is a moderate difficulty run, consisting of both road and trail terrain. The run starts at the base of Squaw Valley KT-22 lift and winds up Easy Street to the Western States Trail and then climbs to 6,890′ at the base of the Knob Hill on Snow King Mountain. Trail then continues onto US forest Service fire road that descends to Alpine Meadows Road and then finishes in the Alpine Meadows parking lot.
Registration for Adults for the 10K Challenge is $46 at the early bird rate (valid before July 31). Day of race registration is $51. Pet registration is $5. Race check-in will take place on the morning of the event from 7:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. at The Village at Squaw Valley. Race starts at 9am for people, and 9:01 for people with dogs.
