On Saturday, July 12 Squeeze In Hosted the Tahoe Rim Trail Assn.
Trail Challenge @ Tahoe Rim Trail Carson Pass / Showers Lake
I’m pleased to announced Squeeze In celebrated their second annual Tahoe Rim Trail Association (TRTA) Trail Challenge Giveaway. Three generations of the Squeeze In family were on the trail Saturday, July 12 as part of “Where’s McLeod Giveaway Day?”. Did you attend? If so, load up those photos. If you weren’t on the trail that day and eager to know what you missed? A generous complimentary breakfast certificate for each and every one of our Trail Challengers.
Not yet a member? Not to worry. Tahoe Rim Trail Challenge membership is $55 for individuals, $85 for families. Team rates are also available. Existing TRTA members can enroll for just $20. To begin the challenge and to register visit: www.tahoerimtrail.org. My two cents, register now and don’t miss out on our next giveaway day.
As per usual, the trail always provides a surprise. From a hunt for McLeod to a beautiful horse and a who lot of smiles – who wouldn’t want to miss out on so much fun?
The 2nd Annual Tahoe Rim Trail Challenge continues to build momentum as over 350 hikers, bikers and equestrians and five large Reno-Tahoe base corporations engage their employees in the 2014 Tahoe Rim Trail Challenge. The program, now in its second year, has inspired both novice and seasoned trail users from the Reno-Tahoe, Sacramento and Bay areas to begin tackling small sections of the Tahoe Rim Trails through six single day hikes along the 165-mile Tahoe Rim Trail. Participants socialize by sharing their on-the-trail experiences, trail stories, pictures and blogging on the interactive, Tahoe Rim Trail Community; an online social media platform which is part of the Tahoe Rim Trail Association’s (TRTA) website.
Can’t make it to this giveaway day, don’t worry – there’s more. Along with quite a few special surprises from our fantastic sponsors.
