CHOOSE YOUR VIRTUAL RACE

2020 is the year of the Virtual Race and we've got you covered! Every Angeleno has driven this route and now it's time to run it... Virtually!

286.2 Miles and you choose how you want to run them!

The fun starts on June 15, 2020

Please see our FAQs for answers to all your questions.

L.A. TO VEGAS has three Race Divisions to choose from:

DIVISION 1 -"I'M ALL IN!" - JUNE 15 TO JULY 15 (COMPETITIVE)

DIVISION 2 - "I'M ON A ROLL" - JUNE 15 TO AUGUST 15

DIVISION 3 - "I'M PLAYING WITH A FULL DECK" - JUNE 15 TO SEPTEMBER 15

I'M ALL IN - JUNE 15 TO JULY 15

DIVISION 1 -"I'M ALL IN!" - JUNE 15 TO JULY 15

Registration remains open until midnight on June 22.

Event tracking opens at 8:00 a.m. on June 15 and closes at 11:59:59 p.m. on July 15.

This is a competitive event. You will have 30-days to get yourself from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in the fastest time possible. You will need to cover an average of 9.54 miles each day if you're going to make it on time. How you spend your mileage is totally your call (pun intended). You may go shorter during the week and stack up on the weekends but remember that you are gambling against other runners to beat them to Vegas where the three fastest Men and Ladies will each win a fabulous Sponsor gift! Keep in mind that you also might bust out but that's part of the fun, right?

I'M ON A ROLL - JUNE 15 TO AUGUST 15

DIVISION 2 - "I'M ON A ROLL" - JUNE 15 TO AUGUST 15

Registration remains open until midnight on June 30.

Event tracking opens at 8:00 a.m. on June 15 and closes at 11:59:59 p.m. on July 15.

This event is non-competitive but only if you think running an average of 4.77 miles daily for 60-days isn't competitive! Here you have more time to get yourself from L.A. to Vegas and you may play your hand any way you like with fewer miles during the week and shoving all-in on the weekends. This category is great for runners who want to form teams to run together virtually or even set up their own team competitions!

"I'M PLAYING WITH A FULL DECK" - JUNE 15 TO SEPTEMBER 15

DIVISION 3 - "I'M PLAYING WITH A FULL DECK" - JUNE 15 TO SEPTEMBER 15

Registration remains open until midnight on July 15.

Event tracking opens at 8:00 a.m. on June 15 and closes at 11:59:59 p.m. on September 15.

There are no gamblers in this division... you are slow playing by running approximately 3.18 miles each day (or 22.26 miles each week) to get yourself to Vegas. This is a excellent option for newbies or anyone who wants a personal challenge toward better health and fitness.

UPDATE 06/09/20

Hello LA2LV Virtual Runners!

Just a short update that the fun begins in six days!

Thank you for supporting this virtual run to help us survive the season of race cancellations.

Magnet medals are expected to arrive sometime next week and will be mailed out to all participants.

We will put the shirts into production on June 15 so if you haven't ordered a shirt, you still have time.

Each day you run, please use the ORANGE RECORD RESULTS BUTTON to enter your miles. Ultra Signup has said you must enter your mileage on a daily basis... if you forget to enter one day in a timely manner, you forfeit that mileage so please stay on top of this.

60 day and 90 day runners will record miles on the honor system but 30 day runners will need to provide proof of mileage to be eligible for a Sponsor Gift. Documentation can be via Strave or photos of your GPS for each day.

Please be sure you have joined our L.A. to Vegas FACEBOOK GROUP. This is the place to post your photos and comments to encourage each other along the way!

If anyone runs some miles along the actual race course, please snap some photos to share!

Can't wait for the fun to begin on June 15!

Happy Trails,

Nancy Shura-Dervin
