WHY TAHOE 200

Courtney Dauwalter's first 200+ mile race was the Moab 240 in 2017, another Destination Trail Race event. She won the race outright, finishing hours before second place and captivating the imagination of the running world. Here was a woman running in unconventional long shorts, beating all the men and the women by 10 hours. 

 

When we asked her why she decided to run the Tahoe 200 Endurance Run the following year in 2018 the answer was simple, she wanted to try another 200 and the BigFoot 200 didn't fit into her race schedule for the year. 

 

RACE GOALS 2018

Courtney's goal was to finish the race in 48 hours, which would have beat the course record by 10 hours. After building some confidence in her legs from the Tahoe 240, she wanted to see how hard they could push the pace and how efficient they could be.
