Welcome to the second edition of The Dirty Vert, the only trail running event in Las Vegas where you get to run up Red Mountain, and ride the Flightlinez zip lines back down! We've teamed with Flightlinez of Bootleg Canyon to bring you this exciting, unique event!
In starting waves of 50 runners, you will race on foot to the top of Red Mountain in Bootleg Canyon where you will cross the finish line, then proceed to ride the four zip lines back down to the gazebo area where we'll be waiting with awards, food, and more!
There are 200 slots total available, with 50 in each wave. We'll have two waves in the morning at 8:00am and 9:00am, and two waves at night at 7:00pm and 8:00pm. There will be a mandatory zip line safety meeting and equipment demonstration 30 minutes before each wave at the Bootleg Canyon gazebo. For example, if you're running Wave 2 at 9:00am, your attendance is required at the 8:30am safety meeting.
There is no age limit for this event, but due to the requirements on the zip lines, you must weigh between 75 and 250 pounds.
Prizes & Awards
There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards for each starting wave, with each runner being able to choose whichever route you think is the fastest route to the top. There will be marked trails for anybody that isn't familiar with the Bootleg Canyon trail system with routes marked easy (well, easier), moderate, and difficult. Runners and walkers are all welcome, as long as you make enough time to get to the top before the time limits (2 hours for Wave 1 and Wave 3, and 1 hour for Wave 2 and Wave 4).
We'll also have The Dirty Vert Happy Hour Challenge, where we'll have a special prize for anybody that really wants to challenge themselves and run up by running down first, utilizing the Lake View trails on the east side of Bootleg Canyon and running up the infamous switchbacks on the River Mountain Hiking Trail before finally ascending Red Mountain to finish. Choosing this option will be around 3.5 miles with around 1400 ft of vertical climb. Oh yeah, and you have to do it in one hour or less. The Dirty Vert Happy Hour Challenge is only available for Wave 1 and Wave 3.
All runners will receive a Dirty Vert tech tee, and finishers will receive a sweet medal. Runners who finish the Dirty Double will receive a custom 20 oz. Dirty Vert pilsner glass.
As the "course" being ran is relatively open, we can't guarantee there will be an aid station on the route you select, but we will have one aid station available at the Lower Caldera lot, located along the easier routes we will have mapped out. There will also be water and food at the finish line, on top of Red Mountain.
Registration Fees & Deadlines
