Race Information

The 72 Mile Tahoe Midnight Express' first 48 miles will be unsupported (until mile 2 of the Lake Tahoe Marathon), meaning all runners will need to provide their own support vehicle and crew. Support vehicle-person will be allowed to support up to 3 runners maximum. The first few miles will have streetlights. All runners for the 72 miler MUST be lit with night reflecting gear, flashing lights that will not be missed by approaching cars, and head a lamp. Runners who show up at the start line without these lights will not be part of this event. No whiners or woosies please! Just get it done. And don't feed the bears!
