You guessed it! Registration is about to open on the 3rd Annual Revel Mt. Charleston Marathon & Half in Las Vegas, Nevada. Beginning 5/11/17, registration opens, and will be the lowest price for this race. (It can, and will) sell out incredibly fast.
I’ve read article after article since Boston last month, stating that Revel Mt. Charleston qualified more runners for the 2017 Boston Marathon than any other race this past year. It’s real, my friends. The course is amazingly beautiful, and incredibly fast! There is a 5,126 ft descent in the Full, and just over 2,000 ft of descent in the Half.
You’ve got to sign up early to enjoy the lowest pricing, and I feel you want a discount on top of that, just sign up on my team. My team is open to anyone. This isn’t a team where we need to run together, or even know each other, it’s just a way for us all to enjoy a discount. So, when registering, just click on the button “join a team” and enter team name “Chasing Boston” into the search field. Simple!
Race date for 2018 is April 28th.
I ran this years race about a week ago, so I can tell you first hand, train on some downhills. This race will hurt you in places you never dreamed possible, if you’re not prepared. I was gunning for a Boston Qualifier, and although I came short, I ran my fastest marathon in three and a half years. If you train right, you will PR, you will BQ. Tons of folks do, and I plan on it next year, after some more appropriate training.
If you’re a fan of FAST, you’ve got to run this race.
So, here’s the breakdown….. joining my team saves you $5 off current registration fees. “Like” them on Facebook during the checkout process, and that will save you an additional $5.
Sound amazing? It is, and will be again next year! After all, it’s Vegas Baby! It’s beautiful, fast, and your golden ticket to Boston!
