Broken Arrow Skyrace

The three-day event, held at world-famous Squaw Valley, consists of four iconic distances. Each distance showcases the beauty of Lake Tahoe, the “Jewel of the Sierra Nevada.” The Broken Arrow Skyrace represents a unique style of European-inspired mountain running characterized by off-trail scrambling, steep terrain, and massive amounts of vertical gain and loss. The majority of this takes place above 6,000 feet and above treeline.

In June, elite and recreational participants get to experience an unforgettable trail experience “where the mountains meet the sky.” The Broken Arrow Skyrace features four distances: a 52K, 26K, 10K and Vertical K. Runners will be treated to spectacular views of Lake Tahoe’s emerald-blue waters and Squaw Valley’s unmistakable high-alpine terrain.

Elite and recreational participants will run and then celebrate together with first-class food, craft beer, music, films and fun activities for the whole family.

This event is a 2019 UTMB Qualifying Race, where the 52k is worth 3 points and the 26k 2 points. Points are applicable for all UTMB races (UTMB, CCC, TDS, OCC, PTL).
