THREE CHALLENGES. THREE CHARITIES. ONE ULTIMATE GOAL.

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO HIT THE TRUCKEE TRIFECTA 222?

THIS IS SUMMER. IT’S TIME TO GO BIG.

YOUR GET OFF THE COUCH SUPPORT LOCAL

SOCIAL DISTANCING SUMMER ADVENTURE!

 

The Virtual River Run Series is all about doing something positive for yourself and for local businesses while supporting non-profits that help our community. Participating is easy! Choose your challenge and then get moving. Go at your own pace in your own home or neighborhood. You can run, jog, walk, bike, skip, or crawl. You can do it on your home treadmill or stationary bike, around your neighborhood or local trails, or just by doing laps inside your house. You get the point. It’s your choice! You can complete a challenge in a day, a week, or spread it out over a couple of months. You track your own progress, and your completion is based on an honors system. When you’re finished, let us know, and we’ll send you an awesome medal and a donation to the coordinating charity of the challenge of your choice!

CHOOSE YOUR CHALLENGE

THE CUTTHROAT

29 MILES

THE DISTANCE ACROSS PYRAMID LAKE

Registration: $50
$40 for each additional family member living at the same address

Upon Completion: Custom Cutthroat Medal

Fittingly named after the infamous trophy fish, this challenge is the equivalent of running across Pyramid Lake. This challenge can be completed in one shot for the experienced runner or spread out over several days or weeks depending on your schedule.

Benefits: The Food Bank of Northern Nevada – provides emergency food services to families throughout northern Nevada and the eastern slope of the sierra in California. The Food Bank of Northern Nevada serves more than 91,000 people each month, almost half of whom are children and seniors. To learn more: fbnn.org

 

THE TAHOE TESSIE

72 MILES

THE DISTANCE AROUND LAKE TAHOE

Registration: $60
$50 for each additional family member living at the same address

Upon Completion: Custom Tahoe Tessie Medal

Named after our region’s social distancing champion! This challenge is the equivalent of running all the way around North America’s largest alpine lake. Is that the smell of mountain air or victory? It’s Lake Tahoe. It’s both.

Benefits: The Nevada Humane Society – the non-profit is working overtime to help the community during the COVID-19 pandemic. NHS is by offering free shelter pet adoptions to give people animal companionship during this time of stress and isolation. They are also providing pet food assistance to ensure people who are under financial hardship can keep their pets instead of having to give them up. To learn more: nevadahumanesociety.org

 

THE FULL TRUCKEE

121 MILES

THE DISTANCE OF THE TRUCKEE RIVER

Registration: $75
$65 for each additional family member living at the same address

Upon Completion: Custom Full Truckee Medal

This challenge is the full length of our river – from Lake Tahoe all the way into Pyramid Lake. You’ll definitely have to spread this out, but it’s not as daunting as it may seem. If you run, jog, walk, or bike roughly four miles a day, you will complete the Full Truckee in a month. That averages out to about an hour or a couple of sitcom episodes a day.

Benefits: Feed Our Heroes – a group of Northern Nevada restaurants and sponsors committed to feeding our ER staff and first responders. Learn more about how the charity helps first responders by keeping our local economy moving: feedourheroes.com

 

THE TRUCKEE TRIFECTA 222 – 222 MILES

THE DISTANCE ACROSS PYRAMID, AROUND TAHOE, AND THE LENGTH OF THE TRUCKEE

Registration: $165
$155 for each additional family member living at the same address

Upon Completion: Cutthroat Medal, Tahoe Tessie Medal, and Full Truckee Medal PLUS a limited-edition Truckee Trifecta Trophy

This is for all the bragging rights and one epic trophy. To earn the Truckee Trifecta, you have to complete all three challenges – the Cutthroat, the Tessie, and the Full Truckee. That’s 222 miles. That’s going big. And that comes with some serious benefits. When you sign-up for the Truckee Trifecta, you’ll get a discounted price on all three challenges, have the option to add a limited-edition t-shirt to your order, plus have the motivation of earning three custom medals and a limited-edition trophy. If that’s not enough motivation, how about this: you’ll be supporting three amazing, local non-profits!

 Some Important Points:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is encouraging families to get outside for physical and mental health. If you choose to go outside, DO practice social distancing of at least six feet from other members of the public and DO NOT touch any outdoor equipment. As soon as you get home, DO wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. If you feel sick DO stay home!

DO NOT meet up with a bunch of other people to complete a Virtual River Run challenge. The CDC recommends you avoid any large gatherings. If you need a running buddy, DO encourage family members who you are social distancing with to get up and get moving with you.

Some trails are closed. DO check to make sure an area is open to the general public before going that way. It is recommended you DO NOT travel outside of your own neighborhood or community.

DO stay up-to-date on the re-opening phases of your state and what it means for your ability to access certain trails and parks

DO avoid popular walking routes in favor of less crowded alternatives

DO join the virtual community! VIRTUAL RIVER RUN COMMUNITY

DO tell everyone you know to sign-up so our community can support the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, the Nevada Humane Society, and Feed Our Heroes!

DO use this as a motivation to take a break from binge-watching shows and scrolling through the Internet

DO post a picture with your hard-earned medal using #VirtualRiverRun

DO know your limits. If you are struggling to complete a challenge by the deadline, don’t overdo it. We want you to finish at your own pace, and we want you to succeed. We will still get you your medal, and, more importantly, the local charity will still get your donation!

DO have fun!
