“We are excited to showcase the East Shore Trail to the Xterra Lake Tahoe participants,” said Todd Jackson, Xterra Lake Tahoe race director in a news release. “They will surely have an experience of a lifetime swimming at Sand Harbor and then transitioning to the 22-mile mountain bike stage starting with the East Shore Trail.”

Competitors will begin the race with a 1,500-meter swim off of Sand Harbor. They then take on a 22-mile bike ride, before finishing the triathlon with a 10-kilometer run.
