Epic Endurance Events invites you to Lake Tahoe, one of the world’s most beautiful places. Make history at the Inaugural UTLT Mountain Ultra Trail Festival. The Village at Northstar California serves as our start and finish venue- there simply is no better mountain resort to host these scenic and difficult events! The Village is world class with great rooms, condos and homes as well as the luxurious Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Lake Tahoe. Amenities abound in this picturesque mountain setting where you can pamper yourself after the leg crushing terrain with spa treatments, hot tubs, swimming, shopping and exquisite food. Enjoy the beauty of Lake Tahoe before or after running; the water, beaches and scenery will leave you in awe. All this and more will provide the perfect backdrop for North America's version of the ultimate Mountain Ultra Trail Festival. Experience why Mark Twain declared of Lake Tahoe: “surely the fairest picture the whole world affords.”

Cancellation Policy:

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.
