The Donner Lake Turkey Trot and Mashed Potato Mile are the perfect race events for the crisp, beautiful weather of November. This is the 40th year these races/walks will be held, and they’ve become quite a tradition in Truckee and Tahoe. This fun and funky family event is run no matter what Mother Nature throws at us, so plan to participate whatever the weather!
Presented by the Auburn Ski Club, the event will be held on November 4, 2017, and you can register online any time and in-person registration is on November 1st to 3rd between 10 and 4 at the Tahoe Mountain Sports.
