    Who Pushed Beyond


Jackpot Ultra Running Festival
NEW 10K/5K Dog and Human Race
February 17 - 20, 2017 in You Know Where, NV

Bet Big, Run Long. Produced by Beyond Limits Running, the Fourth Annual Jackpot Ultra Running Festival on Presidents' Weekend 2017(February 17-20, 48 Hour Race ONLY Starts Friday, February 17, 2017) at Southern Nevada's newest and largest amenity-filled park. And yes, a 48 Hour Race has been added!!!

Located minutes from the Las Vegas strip and just 10 miles from Las Vegas Airport, the $16 million, 100 acre Cornerstone Park is nestled among desert landscape and is anchored by a 31 acre bird sanctuary lake. The lake is surrounded by a massive grass area, entertainment plaza, individual picnic pavilions with lake views, walking/running trails, volleyball and basketball courts, restrooms, BBQ's, a warming kitchen and ample parking. And let's not forget all of the wildlife so many of us got to enjoy as we raced by. The Jackpot course consists of a two-mile loop with 80 feet of elevation ascend/descend per loop (4,000 feet for the 100 mile race). At an elevation of 1,900 feet and average mid-February high/low temperature of 61/45, the Jackpot course is extremely fast. Just ask how many runners had a PR in our inaugural event! Run on a course that is 45% groomed crushed gravel trails, 50% wide asphalt paths, and just 5% bridge and concrete surfaces, the course is well suited for veteran runners wanting to PR, and with a 30 hour time limit, it is perfect for first time ultra runners. The RFID chip timed race starts at the entertainment plaza and makes a horseshoe type loop around the lake with lots of social runner interactions. There is a short out and back portion of the course, but importantly, the turn is a wide looping turn, as opposed to a speed-reducing 180 degree turn. Runners will be treated to two small picturesque bridge crossings every loop. The 80 feet of ascend during each two-mile loop occurs gently, without any steep climbs. The Jackpot course is destined to become one of the fastest looped courses in the Southwest. 

As with other Beyond Limits Running races, the aide station will be once again heavily stocked to take care of runners' nutritional needs and will serve a variety of hot meals, prepared with an on-site warming kitchen. Awards and runner bling will be very memorable. All runners will receive a unique finisher's medal, with 100 mile finishers earning a large buckle (both new designs). Both medals and buckles will be appropriately themed (think casinos). Not everything stays in Vegas and every runner will be leaving with a unique full of bling. As demonstrated during the 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 Jackpot Ultra, the race directors go all out when it comes to designing unique awards. First through third place male and female finishers in each race will earn a trophy case quality award, while age group winners in the 100 mile race will receive the same. 

To create a full-blown festival environment, a live band will perform throughout the day at the start/finish line aide station. Stay motivated and running strong as you listen to one of Vegas' hottest bands. If you haven't figured out already, this is a great vacation getaway ultra. With cheap Southwest Airline flights and 5 affordably priced hotels located 1-3 miles from the race venue, invite family and friends and take full advantage of the 4-day Presidents' Weekend. Enjoy one of Vegas' awarding winning restaurants and catch a show on the strip as you celebrate and recover in style.

Lastly, what better way to end Sin City's premier running event, the Jackpot Ultra Running Festival, than to add a fourth day of running fun featuring our four-legged furry friends. After 3 straight days of humans running Beyond Limits in distances ranging from 5K to 48 hours, we turn the course over to our furry friends and their humans to compete in either a 5K or 10K. While the race is competitive with podium finishers winning custom leashes, the races are walker friendly with all finishers, both dogs and their humans, earning matching medals and matching bandanas. In addition, each furry finisher gets a bag of Animo endurance treats from Mas Korima! Enter the code "Furry" when registering by August 1st and receive a whopping 25% off the already low early bird price. Now our little furry buddies can also Bet Big & Run Long!

Bet Big, Run Long and Hit the JACKPOT at the Jackpot Ultra Running Festival.
