The Running with the Devil Marathon, 1/2, 10K, 5K and 50 mile ultra is run completely inside the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The Running with the Devil races will challenge athletes to contend with Mojave Desert heat in the middle of summer over continual rolling hills. Average temperatures can get up to 110 degrees with low humidity and little cloud cover. Note: The 1/2 Marathon, 10K and 5K start times are earlier in the day for those not wanting to race in the extreme heat.
The course is an out and back on the very scenic Lakeshore and Northshore Drives, and is run completely on pavement.
