Half Marathon Course – 13.5 miles, 1590 ft of vertical climb
Head up the mildly-technical Girl Scout to start, before reaching the Caldera Lot Aid Station and heading onto Caldera, a fast trail with stunning views of Las Vegas. Turn off of Caldera onto Ernie's Epic, a section of moderately-technical rolling hills before heading back towards the finish line on Mother, a fun trail that winds in and out of the small ravines of Bootleg Canyon. With a small detour down P.O.W. to the Veterans Rock Aid Station, rewarded by a steady uphill march back to Mother before flying into a fast finish.

The 30K starts with the half marathon course, heading up the mildly-technical Girl Scout before reaching the Caldera Lot Aid Station and heading onto Caldera, a fast trail with stunning views of Las Vegas.
