REVEL Mt Charleston Registration Opens Today

Due to permit constraint, the 2018 REVEL Mt Charleston marathon will be capped at the same number of participants as last year. With a 40% BQ rate for two years in a row, this marathon is fast and will likely sell out very quickly. Registration opens today, so sign up now if you do not want to miss out.

Participant Highlight

Tim Park

After a wake up call from a doctor's visit in 2014, Tim Park decided to make a change in his health habits. After 1.5 years of working out nearly everyday he decided to see what running was all about. In May 2016 he ran for the first time and by REVEL Canyon City Marathon he was competing in his first organized event and crushing his BQ by nearly 20 minutes! Keep running Tim!

Speedway in Solterra. The team of 88 strong and growing is called Sole Terra RAW
