Welcome to Run it Up Reno! It's here! The highly anticipated event of the year kicks off at noon local time, with a myriad of events throughout the week.

Jason Somerville and Team RIU play host at the beautiful Peppermill Resort, Spa and Casino in sunny Reno, Nevada. With 16 events, tons of satellites and a themed party every night, this is an event that nobody wants to miss!

The week kicks off with Event 1 $235 No Limit Hold'em at noon today. Four main event seats have been thrown into the mix, giving players some added incentive to start the week off strong. There will be at least two tournaments a day along with satellites, with buy-ins ranging from $125 all the way up to the $1,100 Thursday Thrilla. 

Kicking things off tonight is the Turkey Burger Welcome Party at 7:00 p.m. in the Sorrento room. Come hang out, grab a burger (maybe a drink!) and meet the rest of the RIU Warriors! 

Be sure to show your RIU pride by sporting some gear while you play. The last Warrior standing (wearing RIU gear, of course) in each preliminary event will win an entry into the $600 Main Event! If you didn't bring any gear, we've got you covered! Head over to the RIU store in the Capri Ballroom and load up on anything from hats to hoodies.

A full schedule of events and structures are available via RunitUpReno.com, so check things out and plan your week!
