The Bootlegger 50K & 25K is now a FAT ASS style event. More details coming soon. The race will take place in Bootleg Canyon, in the desert mountains outside of Boulder City, Nevada. Famous as a mountain biking destination, Bootleg Canyon is also a popular destination for Las Vegas Valley trail runners. The volcanically formed River Mountains and the views of both Lake Mead and The Las Vegas Strip are a perfect backdrop for this event.
The 50k course consists of two 15 mile loops with a total of 3804' of elevation gain/loss. The 25K is just one loop. The course is very runnable but somewhat technical in places.
The average temperature in Las Vegas for early November are highs in low 70s and lows in the high 40s. But come prepared for all elements.
Local time: 6:20 AM
