Course Descriptions

50k

Miles: 31.84

Elevation: 4,041ft

You'll start the race on a jeep road to connect with Girl Scout for an initial climb up to the Caldera Aid Station (Mid Parking Lot). From here you'll be sent back down East Leg where you'll connect with the Gazebo Aid Station. You'll egress the Gazebo Aid by continuing southeast on Lower Lake View before turning left and heading north up the River Mountain Trail to connect with Skyline - probably the most scenic trail in Bootleg Canyon, with sweeping views of the Las Vegas valley and the surrounding mountains - to once again connect with the Caldera Aid Station. You will egress the aid station by heading west toward Outer Caldera where you'll make a 4-mile loop before coming back into Caldera Aid a third time. This time you'll egress the Aid Station heading southwest to bomb down West Leg, up and over the Mother Connector to POW where you'll continue to the Veterans Aid Station. You will egress the Veterans Aid by heading back up the way you came until reaching Par None, where you'll veer slightly right as you climb to IMBA. Once you reach the top of Par None you'll make a right on IMBA where you'll make your way back toward the jeep trail you started the race on. However, instead of coming back down the jeep trail, you'll cross over it to connect back with the trail that will lead you back into the Gazebo Aid Station for a second time. From here you're going to retrace your steps for a second loop. When you reach the jeep trail at the end of the 2nd loop, you'll make a right and run down the road where you started the race. Congrats, you've made it. Grab a beer & some food and kick back. Well done. 

Marathon

Miles: 27.5 Miles

Elevation: 3,569ft

The Marathon course is essentially the 50k course without the second loop of Outer Caldera. You'll start the race on a jeep road to connect with Girl Scout for an initial climb up to the Caldera Aid Station (Mid Parking Lot). From here you'll be sent back down East Leg where you'll connect with the Gazebo Aid Station. You'll egress the Gazebo Aid by continuing southeast on Lower Lake View before turning left and heading north up the River Mountain Trail to connect with Skyline - probably the most scenic trail in Bootleg Canyon, with sweeping views of the Las Vegas valley and the surrounding mountains - to once again connect with the Caldera Aid Station. You will egress the aid station by heading west toward Outer Caldera where you'll make a 4-mile loop before coming back into Caldera Aid a third time.

You will egress the Veterans Aid by heading back up the way you came until reaching Par None, where you'll veer slightly right as you climb to IMBA. Once you reach the top of Par None you'll make a right on IMBA where you'll make your way back toward the jeep trail you started the race on. However, instead of coming back down the jeep trail, you'll cross over it to connect back with the trail that will lead you back into the Gazebo Aid Station for a second time. From here you're going to retrace your steps for a second loop, but instead of making a second loop of Outer Caldera, you're going to come straight down West Leg, up and over to Mother, then POW to Veterans for a second time. You will then run back up the way you came, veer right on Par None, then another right on IMBA. When you reach the jeep trail at the end of the 2nd loop, you'll make a right and run down the road where you started the race. Congrats, you've made it. Grab a beer & some food and kick back. Well done.
