The start is on the grass area of Commons Beach just a few steps from the water in Tahoe City.
Commons Beach park has recently completed redevelopment and provides several flush toilets at the start area, besides the stinky marathon port-a-potties.
The course begins with a slight uphill out of Commons Beach, through the Tahoe Marina Hotel parking lot and onto Mackinaw Street to Fanny Bridge and then down Highway 89 heading south in the closed lakeside lane. The north bound lane is closed to traffic for the first mile and a half. There will be traffic on your right side in the southbound lane.
