Packet Pick-Up - IMPORTANT - Packet pick-up for the race is from 4:00pm to 7:00pm on Friday February 17, except for the 48 hour race packet pick up. The 48 hour race packet pick up is on Thursday, February 16 from 6:00pm to 7:00pm and on Friday, February 17 from 6:15am to 7:45am at the race location (Cornerstone Park). The race is at Cornerstone Park (1600 Wigwam Parkway, Henderson, NV 89074) and packet pick-up will be adjacent to the aid station. Saturday race day packet pick-up will be from 6:30am to 7:30am.
Parking - There are 500 parking spots at the park with tons of spots located either course-side, or within 10-25 yards of the course. In addition to the large grass area designated for personal course-side aid stations, using your car is also a great option. Just remember, no spikes can be used on the grass.
Camping - NOT allowed night. Starting morning at , you can set-up your own personal rest area.
Personal Aid Stations - There is a large grass area along the course available for personal aid stations. Small pop-ups are allowed, as are small personal tents. However, the park forbids tent spikes, so no spikes! There is plenty of space along the course, so there's no need to rush to the park! Seriously, take advantage of the ONLY will be allowed to set-up their personal space starting at ). start. Sleep in and have a nice breakfast. (Note: 48-hour runners
Race Start - Races except for the 48-hour race, start at 8:00am on February 18. the 48 hour race starts on Friday February 17 at 8:00am.
Pre-Race Fun - Elvis, along with a couple Vegas Showgirls, will arrive at 6:30am on Saturday and will be available for pictures until 8:00am. We will do race announcements at 7:35am and a group photo at 7:45am. Elvis will kick-off the race at 8:00am by belting out Viva Las Vegas!
Weather - To check weather conditions as the race approaches, use zip code 89074. As of today (Feb 1), the long-term forecast calls for a high/low of 71/44 with mostly sunny skies and 5-10 mph wind. Winter weather in Vegas varies dramatically. Last year, temps hit 86. While all weather forecast models currently call for much cooler temps this year, we will be prepared to keep you cool if the heat arrives. Bring sunscreen! By the way, we had snow flurries today and the high was only 47, while two days ago it was 75. Check the weather the week of the race and come prepared with proper attire.
Aid Station - Like in all our races, we will again be going all-out with a heavily stocked aid station. Like you, we run ultra races and know how critical it is to have a variety of “real” food. Main meals will be served during the race at breakfast, lunch, early dinner, late dinner and super late night dinner. In addition to these main meals and traditional snacks (i.e., M&M's, pretzels, cookies, assorted chips, Hammer Gels, boiled potatoes, pickles, danishes, bananas, oranges, muffins, etc), we will also have grilled cheese, P&J sandwiches, frozen grapes, bean burritos (vegan and regular) and a variety of soups (vegan and regular). And of course we'll have tasty desserts including brownies, pumpkin pie, cheesecake, popsicles and snow cones (yep, snow cones). As you can see, we are trying hard to have a variety of food. If you have special dietary needs, please plan accordingly. Importantly, if you need/want to purchase some of your own food/snacks, there is a 24-hour Winco grocery store located across the street from the venue.
Hydration - We're pleased to have Hammer sponsoring our race and the primary electrolyte beverage will be HEED. We all have our own preference for electrolyte beverages, so if you don't like HEED, please plan accordingly. We will also have an extensive array of soda, water and coffee. Speaking of water, to cut down on cup waste, runners should carry a personal water bottle, or personal hydration system for drinking water. Thanks for helping!
Pacers - Pacing is allowed from sunset to sunrise. No more than one pacer may run at any given time with a runner.
Partial Laps - (6/12/24/48 Hour Runners) - We believe fixed time runners should have a chance to run as far as possible during their timed event. When you are going out on what you think is going to be your last lap before the ending horn sounds, you will grab a beanbag with your bib number on it. You will have an opportunity to complete partial laps in half-mile increments. At the 1/2 mile, 1 mile, 1 1/2 mile and 2 mile marks, you will find a bucket on the course. You will drop your beanbag into the bucket you last passed when the ending horn sounds. So for example, if I were to travel 0.6 miles during my final lap, I would walk back to the 1/2 mile bucket and drop my beanbag. With this format, we will use a motorized scooter to quickly fetch the four buckets and upload the partial distances into the system.
Entertainment – In addition to the Showgirls and Elvis appearing at the start, we will have a local band playing throughout the afternoon next to the aid station. Enjoy as you run past. We will also have outdoor movies playing throughout the night on our new outdoor screen, so don't forget to look over and catch a few scenes from some classic movies. We love to have fun, so if you feel like breaking out the glow-in-the-dark body paint at night, or throwing on your favorite running costume, by all means, have at it!!
Course Visibility - 90% of the course has great lighting. About 10% of the course has poor lighting. While majority of runners ran without a headlamp the last two years, we highly suggest every runner bring a headlamp or flashlight. It's a personal preference and you might as well bring one to be safe.
Restrooms - About 20 yards from the aide station there are park restrooms. Each has several stalls and a number of sinks. In addition to these "nice" bathrooms, we will also have 3 porta-potties located course-side.
Volunteers – We need and welcome all the volunteer help we can get, especially now that the event has a 48-hour race. It's a super fun race and folks really enjoy volunteering! If you have family or friends coming to the race who might want to kill 4 hours by volunteering for a shift, please email us at Stephanie@beyondlimitsrunning.
