Also, just in the canyons is ‘Mouse’s Tank’. It was named after an alleged Southern Paiute Indian renegade named ‘Little Mouse’ who hid out there in the 1890’s.

There will be overflow parking over a half mile before the main staging area on the left. If you are running the 10k or 5k, more than likely you will be directed here. We will not have a shuttle this year due to the pandemic, so please arrive early.

Valley of Fire State Park is now charging $10 a car for parking per day. Please bring cash with you on race day or pay at the packet pick-up.


There will be a podium finish. When three deep male/female come in from a certain distance, we will announce the winners. The plaques are always hand made that you will cherish and want to sleep with every night.
All finishers will receive an awesome hand made medal that you will wear in honor.



We LOVE camping! Make sure you get to Logandale Trail System early enough on Friday the 13th to find a spot before the locals do. There are no RV hookups available. If you can’t find a spot, crash with us at the staging area. (unfortunately we won’t be doing a whole lot of sleeping and we may be a little loud).
