Why should you sign up
for a Race178 event?

  • We are an experienced and professional production company. We started putting on races in 2005 with the 1st annual Reno-Tahoe Odyssey.
  • We make the effort and bear the expense of having plenty of volunteers and police and traffic control equipment so that the event is safe and well supported for the participants.
  • We are all about benefiting the local community. Because we are locals. We live in Reno. We work in Reno. We have a vested interest in making the Reno-Tahoe region a better place.
  • Our races showcase different parts of the Reno-Tahoe area - because we are proud of where we live and we want to show it off. Each course is customized so you see interesting landmarks and scenic locations.
  • We work with local vendors and local sponsors which helps spur the local economy.
  • We team up with local nonprofit organizations who get exposure to more of the community. We also contribute a portion of the net proceeds of each event to the charities and encourage others to support the nonprofits on their own.

Event Line Up:

  • the Reno-Tahoe Odyssey Relay Run Adventure (RTO) is our signature event. It is a 178 mile relay run around the Reno-Tahoe region. We offer two shorter relay options, the Capital and Comstock Odyssey Relays;
  • the Leprechaun Race, a 5K run and walk in Reno's Midtown and Wells Avenue districts;
