About

Our huge family grew up not far from here. Every weekend we camped, went horse back riding, hiked, and climbed this amazingly gorgeous area! With over 45,000 acres of amazing beauty, running these trails will go down as one of your most memorable races ever!

Wildlife and plant life

Remember the desert may look a little barren at first take, but there are bighorn sheep, desert tortoise, Black-tailed jackrabbit, skunk, antelope, coyote, bobcat, ect.. There are also many species of lizards and snakes that live in this desert oasis. Keep a lookout also for the various plant life. There are Yucca plants, Creosote, Desert Paintbriss, Prickly Pear cactus and ect..
Absolutely stunning so bring your camera!

Packet Pickup

This will take place in Las Vegas at a TBD location on Thursday, November 16th between 4-7pm. If you can't make it, grab your packet at the staging area before the race.
You can register at the staging area but money or check will only be eccepted.

Aid Stations

We will have plenty of hammer/heed, water, GU, salty snacks, food, and fruits for you. First aid will be at every aid station. Oh, and music (see maps for details).

 

Camping

We LOVE camping! Make sure you get to Logandale Trail System early enough on Friday the 17th to find a spot before the locals do. There are no RV hookups available. If you can't find a spot, crash with us at the staging area. (unfortunately we won't be doing a whole lot of sleeping and we may be a little loud).
