Join us for one of Truckee's most scenic
and rugged trail races
Epic Endurance Events with special support from Run On Dirt Coaching present the inaugural Lost and Found 30K/5K. Designed by Peter Fain of Run On Dirt, this course will leave you breathless. From the abundant wildflowers to the Summit of 9000ft Castle Peak with 360' views of the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains, you will be inspired by the beauty and tested by the difficulty. Whether you are looking for a rugged course that will prepare you for mountain races like TRT100/55 and Castle Peak100k or you want to discover the magic that awaits around this high alpine route, we will guide you safely on this journey. Join us the 28th of July and celebrate in the great outdoors.
The 30k is a modified loop course. The start/finish is at the Johnson Canyon trail head above Donner lake. Starting with a steep climb up to the Donner Lake Rim Trail, along picturesque Summit Lake (Aid1 mile 3.15), winding through ancient granite slabs and then joining the Warren Lake trail which continues to climb up next to the Frog Lake overlook. You then fall off the ridge where you find miles of wildflowers and little streams as you make your way through this pristine alpine valley. The climb up to Devil's Oven (Aid2 mile 8.25) will test your mettle and then follow along the most amazing ridge with 360' views from the Coast Range to Mt Rose where you summit Castle Peak. Enjoy the views before you plummet down to Castle Pass (Aid3 mile 12.85), hop on the Hole in the Ground Trail and head down to Summit Lake (Aid4 mile 15.25) and back to Johnson Canyon. Approximately 4550 feet of vert, 4 aid stations and a great post race party await. Click Caltopo for link to the map and to download GPX tracks.
The 5k is a single loop with about 837 feet of climb, great views of Donner Lake and the Pacific Crest. Come and see why trail running is so addictive- you won't be disappointed!
The post party will feature hot grilled food with lots of cold drinks to enjoy. Bring your family and friends and we will feed them too; no one is turned away from our famous trip-tip burritos and tacos, homemade rice, beans, guacamole and salsa!

We have a NO REFUND, DEFERRAL OR TRANSFER POLICY. It is very expensive and time consuming to organize and produce a trail running event. Most costs (swag, insurance, application and permit fees, emergency services, preparation time, etc.) have been incurred well in advance. Even a small percentage of runners requesting refunds, deferrals or transfers would be prohibitive. Thank you for your understanding.
