Back by popular demand, and reincarnated in 2016 at a new venue to bring you a new challenge! Pure Mojave Desert running at its finest! Come join us on this PAVED and scenic course which covers rolling terrain.
Commencing at an elevation of roughly 4500 feet, runners will experience high desert vegetation to include Joshua Trees, Pinion-Juniper, Mountain Rose, Sagebrush, and a relatively lush Toiyabe National Forest not commonly associated with Las Vegas. The road twists and turns thru the canyon; a true treasure of the Spring Mountains N.R.A. enjoying temperatures ~10 degrees cooler than the Las Vegas Valley.
Still an extreme heat race, expect daytime highs ~95- 100 degrees and overnight lows ~75. On course provisions will help keep you cool!
A 2 day running festival offers something for everyone! We offer the chance to run back to back events without the headache of travel in between! There are many options: Saturday Marathon + Sunday 50K; 1/2 Marathon BOTH days; Saturday 50 Miler + Sunday 50K; 10K BOTH days; Saturday 10K + Sunday 50K.... you get the idea! OR of course you can just come and run one event. But if you have ever been "ultra curious" this is a great way to expand your boundaries!
* This event is held on the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area, Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, under a special use permit.
