review of 2017 REVEL Mt. Charleston Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars

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 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.
