The REVEL Mt. Charleston half marathon and marathon take place against the beautiful backdrop of Kyle Canyon in Mount Charleston. Considered by promoters as “the fastest marathon and half marathon in Nevada,” runners race down the mountain to the finish line in Las Vegas.
The race takes place in April; runners can book their place until the day before. The entry price depends on when you register, varying from $100 to $130 for the half marathon and $160 to $175 for the full marathon. You can receive a discount if you enter a team of four people.
Usually, around 400 runners attend, and everyone who crosses the finish line receives a medal. The net elevation drop for the marathon is more than 5,000 feet. This race is an excellent opportunity to work on your personal bests while counting towards a Boston Marathon qualifier.
