REVEL is a series of running events that is gaining a broad presence in the running world by distinguishing its races in a number of ways, including its unique courses, emphasis on runner experience, and partnerships with local communities, nonprofit organizations, sponsors, and government agencies. REVEL races can best be described by two words: Fast & Beautiful. Our events take place in the most beautiful venues available in the areas in which they are held. REVEL races seek to maximize the time our runners spend running in canyons, forests, state or national parks, and so forth. In addition, the downhill nature of REVEL races provides a unique opportunity for runners to achieve personal best times and qualify for exclusive events.

The REVEL Mt Charleston Half Marathon course offers the best of Kyle Canyon, including breathtaking views of the mountain cliffs and deserts of the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area. Runners will enjoy the canyon walls, glimpses of mountain wildlife, and the serenity of the beautiful Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. If that were not enough, the course is entirely downhill on a paved highway and offers the best PR opportunity around!

The Half Marathon course begins roughly eight miles up Kyle Canyon Rd near the Twilight Zone recreation area. Standing at 4,600 feet above sea level surrounded by snowcapped peaks and fresh mountain air, runners will feel a world away from nearby downtown Las Vegas.

The route begins by treating runners to an 8-mile stretch of pure running bliss as the course heads downhill towards Las Vegas at a nearly steady 4% grade. Along the way runners will enjoy stunning views of the sun rising over nearby Gass Peak to the East and the Las Vegas Strip to the South.

The final five miles take runners through the beautiful palm-lined roads of the Centennial Hills neighborhood. Continuing its downhill slope the course ends at Centennial Hills Park, where finish festivities await and plenty of comfortable grass is to be found. REVEL Mt Charleston is the fastest and most beautiful half marathon in Nevada!
