Introducing Broken Arrow Race Ready Items

The Broken Arrow Skyrace, presented by Salomon, is a three-day, nine-distance event held at world-famous Palisades Tahoe. On June 21-23, 2024 elite and recreational participants will experience an unforgettable trail running experience “where the mountains meet the sky.” The Broken Arrow consists of nine iconic distances that showcase the beauty of Lake Tahoe, the Jewel of the Sierra Nevada.

Designed in the vein of classic European Skyraces, the Broken Arrow Skyrace represents a unique style of mountain running, characterized by off-trail scrambling on steep terrain with massive amounts of vertical gain and loss at altitude....with exposure, hand lines, a ladder and snow slopes thrown in for good measure!

Race Ready Items are curated lists of trail running gear that promise to deliver the best performance at the Broken Arrow Skyrace. We've compiled trail running shoes, packs, poles, nutrition, and essentials so that you can have the most confidence in your gear. 

Race Ready Items are only available at the Broken Arrow Skyrace Vendor Village. Join Alpenglow Sports and other Race Ready brands from June 21-23rd at Palisades Tahoe.
