Things To Do In South Lake Tahoe

  • Sierra Recon
    A lone runner emerges on the horizon, covered completely in mud that falls from his arms in chunks. He soldiers up a hill, stopping only briefly before throwing himself between hanging car tires swaying from ropes. He’s smiling a big, goofy grin as he’s battered by the tires and exhausted by the distance—but he wouldn’t be here if he wasn't up for the challenge. Sierra Recon’s muddy courses traverse 4-, 7-, and 11-mile stretches with walls, beams, nets, and ice awaiting runners between the starting line and the after party. The race, which boasts at least two such creative obstacles each mile, attracts both daredevils and their enthusiastic entourages, who holler their encouragement from a dry deck with views of the course. Runners can choose both their difficulty and distance for the race, though all routes promise mud and creative obstacles built by licensed contractors.

  • Renaissance Productions
    The jousting knights at the Valhalla Renaissance Faire aren't just play acting. While draped in 130 pounds of steel armor and a helmet with only a quarter-inch eye slot, they spur their 2,000-pound steeds toward each other and charge. When solid hemlock lance and knight collide at up to 30 mph, the skilled riders must somehow control their horses while absorbing an impact so violent it's been known to break bones. It's a realistic glimpse into the past and far from the only one at the faire, where costumed attendees encounter full armored combat between knights, shoot arrows at targets, learn to sword fight, listen to ancient music, and giggle at jesters' antics. They can also visit the merchant marketplace's nearly 100 merchants and crafters and sample culinary delicacies.
