A new addition for 2016 is the Broken Arrow Skyrace, presented by Salomon, a three-distance trail running event held at iconic Squaw Valley on June 18 and 19. This iconic race speeds up mountain trails, scrambles across ridgelines and up gullies and swooshes through Tahoe’s forests. There will be three distances: a vertical kilometer distance that is 3 to 3.5 miles and gains 3,200 feet in elevation, a 32.23-mile distance with more than 11,000 feet of elevation gain and a 16.4-mile distance with a 6,000-foot elevation gain. | brokenarrowskyrace.com
