Route description

The 50 miler runs along the paved Lovell Canyon Road as it twists and turns covering rolling terrain. Lovell Canyon Road is ~11 miles in length. You will run the first 26.2 miles together with the marathoners and 50K runners: At mile 11 marathoners, 50K runners and 50 milers will turn around and run 2.1 miles out and back along the same paved road, before returning to this same aid station. You will turn around again and return the 11 paved miles back to the finish line (Aid station "Homebase" for 50K and 50 mile runners). You will then run all the way out 11 miles, back 11 miles, bringing you back to Aid station "Homebase" at your mile 48.08. You'll then have one short final out and back victory lap of 1.92 miles to complete the 50 mile distance. You will never be further than 5.5 miles to your own drop bag (3 locations available). No one climb is too long and for many reasons makes for a great first 50 miler, a possible PR at the distance, while offering a challenge to seasoned runners. No pacers allowed for the 50 miler. Total climbing is roughly 4000' with a net zero gain. 12.5 hour cut off.

Spectators

Spectators are an important part of any race- they give you that boost of energy when you need it most, encourage you when you're feeling low, and can pep you up to fly into the finish line! Calico Racing wants you and your spectators to have a fun and safe experience.

How to get there

160 Las Vegas Blvd N, Las Vegas, NV 89101, USA

Get directionsExternalLink

Off site parking/ shuttle location IF employed:
Parking at/ near the start/ finish line will be for marathon, 50K, and 50M runners only.
All other participants and their spectators will park in the dirt lot off Sandy Valley Road and Highway 160. Directions are below. This parking area is 2.5 miles further west than Lovell Canyon Road, so for those of us coming from Las Vegas you will PASS the start line. You'll see us set up right there off the highway. If you are carpooling- I suggest the driver dropping off the remaining runners at the start line, then proceeding to the parking area. This will reduce the number of people being bused, and will speed up the process for everyone. There will be a few buses running on a rotation to get you from this lot to the start line (about 5 minutes drive). Buses will run continuously to return runners to their cars after the race as demand dictates.
