The Reno-Tahoe Odyssey Relay Run Adventure (RTO) is a relay from Reno to Lake Tahoe and back to Reno making a large 178 mile loop around the Reno-Tahoe region. The relay starts at Wingfield Park along the Truckee River in downtown Reno, passes through Truckee, Tahoe City, South Lake Tahoe, Genoa, Carson City and Virginia City before returning to Reno and finishing at Idlewild Park.

The course is divided into 36 legs or segments, with each leg averaging about 5 miles.

The date of the RTO is always the Friday and Saturday following Memorial Day Weekend. That means that the RTO is usually in late May or early June depending on the date of Memorial Day Monday.

Teams start on RTO Friday, run throughout the night and finish the next day on RTO Saturday.

Start times are staggered between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. on RTO Friday depending on your team’s projected total time to complete this relay. The slowest teams start early that morning, and the fastest teams start later that afternoon.

The maximum number of runners that you may have on an RTO team is twelve (12). The relay is ideally suited for 12 person teams with each person running 3 legs. Ultra teams of six (6) or less persons are allowed. You set up your runner line-up for your team. You should run in the order of your line-up. Race178 does not need to receive your line-up.

We cap the RTO field for quality and safety reasons. Our goal is not to be the biggest relay in the world. Rather we want to create an amazing experience, something that you will want to do again and again and again. And if you are going to join the Circle of Fame, that is what you will need to do.

This is the most fun you will ever have running on a spectacular one-of-a-kind route showcasing the beauty and history of the Reno-Tahoe region.  Link to Register —->
