Ratings & Reviews for the REVEL Mt. Charleston Marathon

5 Stars from 5 Reviews



review of 2016 REVEL Mt. Charleston Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars

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.

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.

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.
