In just four years, Team In Training (TNT) Ultra Team has seen an increase in trail running and ultra marathon participation. To accommodate this surge in interest, this team of nearly 50 members will be taking part in the Tahoe Rim Trail 50K (roughly 31 miles) and in various 50 mile events, including the Quicksilver 25K and the Rio del Lago 100K. Together, this small but mighty group will raise more than $ 100,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to advance new, life-saving blood cancer treatment research.
