IRONMAN Lake Tahoe is set to take place this Sunday, September 22, 2013. While there are various routes motorists can take to circumvent the IRONMAN race course, it is best to traverse the areas between the race start at Kings Beach and the finish at Squaw Valley without interfering with the bike path.
For the quickest and easiest access through the area, start on HWY 267 North to HWY 80 East, take Exit 190 (Pioneer Trail) and then get back on HWY 80 West, and take 89 South, Exit 185 to arrive at Squaw Valley.
There will be limited and temporary road closures throughout the day. However, all roads will return to normal by 5:30 p.m. For a complete listing of road closures visit the IRONMAN website. Due to the limited road space it is not recommended to try to follow any athletes by car during the race.
IRONMAN Lake Tahoe, which features a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike and 26.2-mile run, begins with a swim at King’s Beach. After cyclists pedal through Truckee and over Brockway Summit, they finish at the Village at Squaw Valley.
