A Cause Worth Striding For

Fresh Tracks 5K Snowshoe Walk and Race is not just about the thrill of winter sports; it's about making a difference. This event supports the fight against Metastatic Breast Cancer, honoring local heroes like Rene Gorevin, Dr. Kelly Shanahan, Adrienne Shepard and other remarkable Tahoe women.

Competition with a Twist

For those who love a challenge, unique age-group awards are up for grabs, going three deep. Celebrate your accomplishment with sausages hot off the barbecue, veggie chili, fruit, cookies, and cocoa – it's a party in the snow!

No Snow, No Problem
