Blood, Sweat & Beers

Bootleg Canyon, Boulder City, NV - March 1, 2014


Blood, Sweat & Beers 2014 Results:
We had some issues with runners that weren't checked in, as well as our timing system just freaking out completely at one point (specifically about 20 half marathon runners that all got clocked in at 3:29:04 somehow). If you see a problem with your time, please contact Rob at rob@desertdash.com and we'll get it fixed ASAP. We apologize if your time was affected and will make every effort to correct it.

5K, 10K, Half Marathon, 30K, and Marathon Day & Night Trail Races

Our return to Bootleg Canyon with more beer (and root beer!), more trails, and more fun! For the first time ever, we're offering a marathon distance at one of our races, and what better place for it than Bootleg Canyon?

Join us on March 1, 2014 for our first race of 2014. This was one of our most popular races of 2013 and we're making it bigger and better this year with expanded distances, more sponsors and prizes, and more free beer!

Race Distances

We'll be offering the option to run daylight events starting at 9:00am, the Moonlight Madness events starting at 5:00pm (Marathon) or 6:00pm (5K, 10K, Half Marathon, and 30K), or the Dirty Double, where you get to enjoy both races! All race distances are available for the Daylight and Moonlight Madness races both.

If you choose to register for the Dirty Double, you can change the distances you're running on race day, but we'll ask which distances you're planning on running when you register.

5K Course – 3.2 miles, 525 ft of vertical climb

A steady climb uphill on the mildly-technical Girl Scout trail before reaching the Caldera Lot Aid Station and returning on the moderately technical, but very fast, East Leg trail, followed by the dirt road for approximately 1/2 mile to the finish.

10K Course – 6.3 miles, 750 ft of vertical climb

Start by running downhill along the beautiful, windy Lower Lake View trail (which lives up to its name) before heading up the River Mountain Trail and the infamous switchbacks, followed by taking Boy Scout back to the Caldera Lot Aid Station and West Leg–the only moderately-technical trail of this course–to the finish.

Half Marathon Course – 13.5 miles, 1590 ft of vertical climb

Head up the mildly-technical Girl Scout to start, before reaching the Caldera Lot Aid Station and heading onto Caldera, a fast trail with stunning views of Las Vegas. Turn off of Caldera onto Ernie's Epic, a section of moderately-technical rolling hills before heading back towards the finish line on Mother, a fun trail that winds in and out of the small ravines of Bootleg Canyon. With a small detour down P.O.W. to the Veterans Rock Aid Station, rewarded by a steady uphill march back to Mother before flying into a fast finish.

30K Course – 19.4 miles, 2450 ft of vertical climb

The 30K starts with the half marathon course, heading up the mildly-technical Girl Scout before reaching the Caldera Lot Aid Station and heading onto Caldera, a fast trail with stunning views of Las Vegas. Turn off of Caldera onto Ernie's Epic, a section of moderately-technical rolling hills before heading back towards the finish line on Mother, a fun trail that winds in and out of the small ravines of Bootleg Canyon. With a small detour down P.O.W. to the Veterans Rock Aid Station, rewarded by a steady uphill march back to Mother and past the start/finish area before being greeted with downhill trail along the beautiful, windy Lower Lake View trail (which lives up to its name) before heading up the River Mountain Trail and the infamous switchbacks, followed by taking Boy Scout back to the Caldera Lot Aid Station and West Leg–a moderately-technical trail–to the finish.

Marathon Course – 27.2 miles, 3100 ft of vertical climb (Daytime only)

Our marathon course starts by running downhill along the beautiful, windy Lower Lake View trail (which lives up to its name) before heading up the River Mountain Trail and the infamous switchbacks, followed by a jaunt on the technical Skyline to the Caldera Lot Aid Station. Head out on Caldera East and return on Inner Caldera to the Aid Station, then head out on the climb of Caldera West and link up with Ernie's Epic, a section of moderately-technical rolling hills before heading back on Mother, a fun trail that winds in and out of the small ravins of Bootleg Canyon. With a small detour down P.O.W. to the Rocks Aid Station, rewarded by a steady uphill march back to Mother and past the start/finish area before again hitting the Lower Lake View trail, River Mountain Trail, and the switchbacks. Head down Boy Scout this time to the Caldera Lot Aid Station, and race down the moderately-technical West Leg, taking the connector up and over the hill to Mother, down to I.M.B.A, and back to the start/finish line on Mother.
