2nd Annual Tahoe Rim Trail Challenge “Where’s McLeod” on Tahoe Rim Trail
Where's McLeod? Giveaway Days Have you seen trail mascot, McLeod the Marmot along the Tahoe Rim Trail? This summer, he too, will be taking on the Tahoe Rim Trail Challenge and will make a special appearance at each of our six Where's McLeod? Giveaway Days! Various Saturdays this summer the TRTA and our sponsors will be with McLeod passing out cool surprises from our supporters and cheering you on as you take on each of your six challenge treks.
The 2nd Annual Tahoe Rim Trail Challenge continues to build momentum as over 350 hikers, bikers and equestrians and five large Reno-Tahoe base corporations engage their employees in the 2014 Tahoe Rim Trail Challenge.
The program, now in its second year, has inspired both novice and seasoned trail users to begin tackling small sections of the Tahoe Rim Trails through six day-hikes along the 165-mile Tahoe Rim Trail.
Reno-Tahoe based companies NV Energy, Wells Fargo, Desert Research Institute, Hometown Health and REI have incorporated the challenge into their corporation’s workplace wellness programs.
The TRTA is also excited to announce six upcoming “Where’s McLeod? Tahoe Rim Trail Challenge Giveaway Days” as fun and interactive opportunities for Trail Challenge participants to complete their six challenge hikes this summer.
Two of the six take place July 12 and 19. The TRTA staff, board and sponsors will be staged at various trailheads as part of the Tahoe Rim Trail Challenge to cheer on participants as they reach their challenge goals. Additional dates are August 9 and 23 and September 13 and 17.
Trail Challengers who come out for the day are encouraged to search for trail mascot, McLeod the Marmot, who will be on the trail ready to greet participants at a special vista. Upon discovery, participants will receive a free giveaway from our various sponsors.
