Race Results2015 Bootleg Beatdown

After the inaugural running of Bootleg Beatdown in 2014, we were very excited for its return in 2015.. Originally an idea created from a conversation with a local runner, the Bootleg Beatdown was the result of finding the toughest 5K, 5M, and 10M routes through Bootleg Canyon during the hottest time of the year.

Although our intention was to host the race in the brutal summer heat of Las Vegas, we were given a break with temperatures 15-degrees cooler than normal. However, runners seemed to turn up the intensity with the cooler weather as new course records were set (and shattered) and many, many more runners came in with bloody knees, hands, and elbows as the higher intensity came with higher risks of falling. Ultimately, Bootleg Beatdown once again lived up to its name, with countless runners commenting on how difficult the course was and how relentless the climb up Ginger can be.

Excitement built leading up to the race with the anticipation of seeing some very fast names on the entry list battle it out, and we were not disappointed. In the men's 10M it was Christopher Faulkner, Forrest Jarvi, and Dan Kuch jumping out to the lead early and never letting go. Coming through the Gazebo Aid Station at the 5M mark in a much-faster-than-anticipated 45 minutes (a staggering 9:00 min/mile pace including Ginger) it was Faulkner followed by Kuch, with Jarvis just behind them. Around mile 7 and the long climb up the River Mountain Hiking Trail switchbacks, Kuch and Jarvi were able to catch and pass Faulkner and remained in those positions for the remainder of the race, with Dan Kuch setting a new course record by over 30 minutes, and the entire top 10 of the 10M finishing under last year's winning time, including 2014 winner Deuvall Dorsey, who improved his time from 2014 by 15 minutes but still found himself outside of the top 5 in this year's field. On the women's side, 10M winner Stacie Brennise figuratively cruised to victory with just over 15 minutes of time between herself and second place finisher Rebecca Martin. Brennise, Martin, and third place finisher Tana Gurule all beat the top time set by Keena DeLay in 2014.

In the 5M, it was once again Kara Nassoiy showing the guys who's boss, taking the win outright while netting a 4:00 improvement over last year's winning time, with Jacqueline Carlin and Lisa Colety completing the podium. Lonan Pies took home 1st overall male while missing Kara's 2014 time by mere seconds, but besting last year's top male time by almost 7 minutes. Desert Dash regulars Gary Lyon and Brian Curtis round out the men's podium. The 5M field was much more even than the 10M, with the top 6 overall finishers consisting of the top 3 male and top 3 female runners.

Henderson Trail Classic podium finisher Lino Rubio found his top podium spot at Bootleg Beatdown, with his second-place 23:46 5K time at Henderson Trail Classic translating to a 43:51 on the unforgiving slopes of Red Mountain. Las Vegas local Matthew Haley (and first time trail racer!) took second, with Patrick Carmody taking third place back home to Ohio. First-time winner Deanna Zaccardelli (and fiancé of 5M winner Lonan Pies) stood atop the podium for the women's 5K, with Angie Burton and Jennifer Barrett behind her.
