Course Descriptions

50k

Miles: 31.31

Elevation: 3,995ft

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 Lower Lake View that will run you toward Lake Mead 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 clockwise 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 a fast and flowy mountain bike trail to the Veterans Aid Station. You will egress the Veterans Aid by heading back up the way you came until reaching the River Mountain Trail, where you'll turn right and continue east toward Blade-runner. A slight left will connect you to Blade-runner where you'll climb back up to Mother. Once you reach the top of Blade-runner you'll make a right on Mother and make your way back toward the jeep trail you started the race on. Make a right on the jeep trail and run through the start/finish area for your first loop. From here you're going to retrace your steps for a second loop before coming back into the finish area for a second time. Grab a Silver State from CraftHaus. You worked for it.

Marathon

Miles: 26.99 Miles

Elevation: 3,537ft

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 Lower Lake View that will run you toward Lake Mead 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 a fast and flowy mountain bike trail to the Veterans Aid Station. You will egress the Veterans Aid by heading back up the way you came until reaching the River Mountain Trail, where you'll turn right and continue east toward Blade-runner. A slight left will connect you to Blade-runner where you'll climb back up to Mother. Once you reach the top of Blade-runner you'll make a right on Mother and make your way back toward the jeep trail you started the race on. Make a right on the jeep trail and run through the start/finish area for your first loop. 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. When you reach the jeep trail at the end of the 2nd loop, you'll make a right and race to the finish. Congrats, you've made it. Grab a beer & some food and kick back. Well done.

From here you'll egress the aid station by heading southwest down West Leg, up and over the connector to Mother before finally connecting with POW and following a fast descent into Veterans Aid Station.
