West Career and Technical Academy (WCTA)

11945 W Charleston Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89135


Start Line Shuttles:

Shuttles will transport all participants to FROM: WCTA and TO: Spring Mountain Ranch State Park.

Shuttles will leave WCTA’s WEST Parking Lot every ten minutes beginning at 5:30 am. The final shuttle will leave at 6:40 am. If you choose to drive yourself or have yourself driven to the start line you must pay the entrance fee to the park and there are no return shuttles available after the race. We do not recommend driving yourself.


Start line:

Spring Mountain Ranch State Park hosts the race start. Shuttles will drop participants roughly 200 yards from the race start area. The Race begins at 7:00 am with announcements starting at 6:50 am.

Coffee, snacks, water, toilets, and bag/clothing drop will all be available at the start line area. We strongly recommend taking advantage of the bag drop as the temperatures will be cool early in the morning.



The first mile of the course takes place within Spring Mountain Ranch State Park with the final 9 miles traveling eastbound on SR 159 /Charleston Blvd. and ending at WCTA. Runners will stay in the designated bike lane at all times. There are two cattle guards along the course. One is at the exit from Spring Mountain Ranch State Park / Mile 1 and the other is at roughly mile 8.7 near the ‘Welcome to Red Rock Canyon’ sign. Both will be covered with plywood for your safety.



Mid-October weather can be beautiful, temperate, rainy - who really knows, right? Year one offered thunderstorms, which broke into rainbows and clear skies once the race started. The predicted weather for Saturday is sunny skies with lows around 50 and mights in the mid 70's. Not bad! We recommend bringing layers of clothes to the start line and utilizing the drawstring bag provided by the race for your belongings. The tear-off portion of your bib is for identifying your drop bag. An additional clothing drop will be at the first aid station (mile 2) for any additional layers you wish to shed. This bin will be returned to the finish line after the aid station closes and items will be made available on an at-will basis. Discarded items will be donated at the end of the day.


Aid Stations:

There will be volunteer Aid Stations roughly every two miles along the course. Water, Electrolyte drink, and a toilet will be available at each aid station. Should you find yourself in need of additional assistance please speak with a volunteer at the aid station who may assist you. Sag will be available but know this may take some time to arrange.


Race Rules:

Each participant will have their race bib visible on the front of his or her body. This is important for a variety of reasons, least of which is race photographs. Smile! Participants will stay within the designated course and not enter the roadway. Leaving the course and entering the traffic lane on SR 159 can be cause for disqualification. A safe course requires participants to hear commands from race staff, volunteers, and police officers. If you insist on participating with music, leave one ear open at all times.

Per our permit, all participants must maintain a minimum pace of 15 minutes per mile, or a 2:30 finish time.



Awards will be given for the top three overall men and women, top three in each age group and top three teams. The awards ceremony will begin at 9:30 am


Finish Line:

The Finish Line will feature our partner vendors, bodywork and active stretching areas, water and electrolyte drink, hot coffee, cold beer, fruit and snacks, music, searchable finisher times, and dropped bag collection. It is a short walk back to parked vehicles from the finish line.
