Running with Santas

Posted in Local Culture | November 26, 2013 | By Georgette Riley

Last year, I was able to convince a few friends in South Lake Tahoe to join me in a run up Ski Run Blvd from the Blue Angel Café to Himmel Haus. It was dark. And cold, despite the extra layer of red velvet over my running tights. But we had a blast!

There were, ahem, beverages available before we started, and more beverages ande delicious food when we arrived at Himmel Haus. It was such a fun time; even more people are excited to make the run this year!

The 2nd Annual South Tahoe Santa Run is set for Sunday, December 1st. You can register online at www.heavenlyfoundationteam.org, in advance in person at Himmel Haus or Blue Angel Café, or – in true Tahoe fashion – the day of the event at the Blue Angel Cafe from 2-4pm. Registration includes the run, one door prize raffle ticket and lite buffet at Himmel Haus post-party.
