Bootlegger - About
Starting in 2024, we've decided to combine two great events in order to bring you one great weekend of trail running and craft beer in Boulder City, NV. From 2024 on, the old Blood, Sweat, and Beers courses will be retired and replaced with the main 25k course from Bootlegger. The 25k course will be 1 entire loop with the 50k being, you guessed it, 2 full loops. The 5k, 10k and Half courses will remain exactly the same, but this year we'll have later start times to give you some extra shut eye before a fun day in Bootleg Canyon!

Expect the average high near Las Vegas in late March to be around 72 degrees and the low to occasionally dip into the 40s. For the last few years we have seen winter conditions persist into late March and April. Please be sure to prepare for both hot and cold conditions. Conditions are volatile and unforgiving in the exposed desert. However, we usually have quite perfect running conditions in the winter and spring in the Las Vegas area and we expect next March to be no different!
