Runners of all ages will be out on the road today when the 39th annual Robert DeCelle Jr. Memorial Lake Tahoe Relay is held.
The race starts at 7 a.m. from the South Lake Tahoe Y, located at the intersection of highways 50 and 89, and traditionally attracts 90 to 100 teams.
The relay consists of seven-member teams running the 72-mile perimeter around Lake Tahoe. Runners cover distances ranging from 8 to 12 miles.
Eleven different divisions are offered for men, women from masters to high school age levels.
Robert DeCelle Sr. originated the race in the mid-1960s and named it in memory of his son, who died in Vietnam in 1972.
