|Lake Tahoe from Tahoe Rim Trail|
The new running club is called the Donner Party Mountain Runners (DPMR). DPMR was formed “to inform and inspire mountain runners in Truckee-Tahoe.” Club runs have already been scheduled and membership fees are being accepted on their website; Donner Party Mountain Runners.com
DPMR has achieved 501(C) (3) status as a non-profit running club under the umbrella of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA).
DPMR will have regular Thursday morning workouts at various locations around Truckee/North Tahoe. Thursday morning workouts will include some form of intervals, speed, tempo, or hill repeats.
Monday evening workouts are "slow-paced" runs to introduce new runners to the trails and experienced trail runners to new trails. The runs are targeted for 3-4 miles on various trails in the Truckee/North Tahoe area.
The Donner Party Mountain Runners Facebook page will keep you informed about races, trail conditions, and informal runs and gatherings.
Basic DPMR membership starts at $35 per year and includes the Memorial Day Members’ Party and RRCA membership with newsletter.
DPMR looks like a great group to me. My wife and I just joined!
