  Great course. Well organized.

Review

Great course. Well organized. Got a PR.


Race Tips

Practice lots of downhill runs with some uphill at the end. Weather was cool at start and warm at end but could potentially be very warm at the end.


5 / 5 Stars


  Awesome fast run

Review

Was an awesome breathtaking downhill course that is a fast bq. No complaints as everything was awesome


Race Tips

Its all downhill except 2 small uphills in first few miles and around mile 21 was a out and back that was a gradual uphill.

Review

The temperature was perfect, the wind was not. Was not happy about the last minute course change that added the out and back. All in all, it was a great race though. I BQ'd by 13 minutes and beat my goal by 7 minutes. Would do this race again for sure! Plenty of bathrooms at the top and loved the fact that there was a bathroom on the bus.


Race Tips

Dress warm for the top. Wished I had taken a bus at 4:30 not 4:45 as it took about an hour to get to the top. By the time I stood in line for the bathrooms, it was only 5 minutes to race time so didn't give me much time to be prepared.

Review

Fastest marathon yet. I beat out my previous time by 5 minutes-- Big Cottonwood 2016-- and qualified for Boston. Revel does a pretty good job with organizing these events. Beautiful courses and well marked course. This year's course seemed to be a little off on mileage at the beginning but, this could be the result of not being able to run tangents for the first couple of miles with how many people are trying to run in one lane. A staggered start would be nice.

Aid stations in my 3:35 group got a little sparse and the volunteers were having a hard time keeping up at the beginning.


Race Tips

You will go a little faster in the first 20 miles and still have a decline until mile 22. Mile 22-23.5 was tough. Save a little for this section.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

The race is point to point. Its cold at the top so I recommend NOT taking the earliest bus. A bus about 10 minutes before the last one is probably ideal in order to use the bathroom and leave your drop bag in time.

This is a fast steady downhill course, but not so steep that it tears you up


Race Tips

Can be cold at the start line, but that makes for great running once warmed up

Review

The route was wonderful.


Race Tips

If you want a BQ you must run it


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

I prefer to stay in Las Vegas and rent a car to go, you can park at Target

Review

I loved how organized it was. The course was beautiful. The pre run gloves they gave came in handy. Maybe have the water at the finish colder.


Race Tips

Expect the start to be chilly and come with warm clothing. Because of the down hill don't go out too fast, gravity will take you so keep a steady pace.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Parking was not a problem, just try to plan your trip accordingly to leave room for any delays.

Review

Great course, scenic for the first 20 miles, then suburbs to finish. A nice downhill flowing runners course. Love the start in the snow ridge line, perfect weather, low 40's at the start , , finish around 60, definately the fastest course in the west. Just prepare to train on long downhill and some uphills and you can fly in this course.


Race Tips

Best pacing is to hold back with easy pace the first half, but it will be fast with the steepness, then hold on and finish second half strong as slope decreases. Weather was 40 at start 60 at finish, wear layers-shirt, sleevless, tshirt throway, gloves, ski hat, sunglasses as sun can pop out. Aid every 2 miles, every mile has marker,


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Lots of motel choices, north vegas is closer, easy parking for expo and race start. 5 minutes after race to cars. Great buses-high end, not school buses. No fires at start so bring warm clothing to stay warm. Early in the morning, zero traffic so anywhere in Vegas is a short drive to the start, under 25 minutes.

Review

Absolutely the BEST marathon I have ever run! A fast course, but not so fast of a downhill that you feel like you are out of control. I didn't even feel the decline until after the next few days...quads and hamstrings weren't too happy. A BQ and PR by several minutes! Wonderful communication and AWESOME freebies at the start line for the cold top of the mountain temps - beanie, gloves and mylar blanket.


Race Tips

Definitely do some downhill training and plan for snow, rain, hail, sun on race day! The weather constantly changed, but not enough to make much of a difference. Plan to wear layers.
