Lake Tahoe Burton Creek Half Marathon, 6K, 12K

The Burton Creek Trail Run takes place on a beautiful, fun and challenging trail system within Burton Creek State Park near Tahoe City, CA. The course features miles of single track through pine forests and high sierra meadows.

Burton Creek collects the runoff from the Mt. Watson watershed as it heads to into Lake Tahoe. You’ll see and hear the creek often and June is a great wildflower time of year as well. Choose between from the 6K, 12K, or Half Marathon. The Burton Creek Half Marathon is one of the best Lake Tahoe Half Marathons. Also bring the kids as we offer age appropriate distance kids races for those 4 and older.

Race start is located at, Highlands Community Center, 938 Country Club Dr, Tahoe City, CA 96145
