Driving Instructions
ipants traveling by air will arrive at McCarran International Airport. Here are two driving direction options.  Unless you will be coming from the Summerlin area, I highly suggested taking option one as it’s quick and easy.

Option One.  At the corner of I-15 and Blue Diamond you will find the Silverton Casino.  From this corner at 1-15, head west on Blue Diamond Road (aka Highway 160).  Continue 15.1-miles on Blue Diamond Road and turn right into the Late Night Trail parking lot.  Driving time from the Silverton Casino is 21 minutes.

Option Two.  From the Red Rock Casino in Summerlin, located at the 215 and Charleston Road, head west on Charleston road for 15.8-miles.  You will travel past the Red Rock Scenic Loop and the town of Blue Diamond during this 15.8-mile stretch.  Turn right at Highway 160 (there will be a stop sign) and travel 4.7 miles along Highway 160 and turn right into the Late Night Trailhead parking lot.  Driving time from Red Rock Casino is approximately 25 minutes.

Transportation Options
There is no shuttle service from the Vegas strip to the race.  With runners finishing at varying times throughout the 32-hour race, it’s not practical.  Driving to the venue is the best option.  Vegas airport has very affordable rental car options.  A quick search of Expedia shows cars available from all major car rental companies including Payless ($23/day + tax), Dollar ($25/day + tax) and Hertz ($36/day + tax).  If you prefer not to rent a car, Vegas now has Uber and Lyft, in addition to traditional taxis.  While cell service is not great at the race venue, there is a strong enough signal to make/receive calls from the start/finish line.

The Late Night Trailhead parking lot will be reserved for 50 and 100-mile race participants so they can easily access their cars during the nighttime hours of the race.  Directly across from the Late Night Trailhead Parking lot is a dirt section that lines Highway 160 where 16 mile and marathon runners should park (a volunteer will help).  Don’t worry, it’s literally right across the street and only a 2-3 minute walk through a tunnel under the road to reach the start/finish line.
