REVEL Mt Lemmon Limited Edition Race Information
Cancellation, Withdrawal, Deferment, & Transfer Policy
Unlike other REVEL races, it will NOT be possible to withdraw from this race and receive a refund; nor will it be possible to defer your entry to a future REVEL race. Once registration is complete, your entry is locked in and cannot be undone. However, it will be possible to transfer your entry to another individual per usual at REVEL events. See the Transfer page for additional details.
If any given race day hits its cap and proceeds as planned but later gets cancelled due to restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, all registrants will receive a full refund of their entry fees. Note that REVEL will not issue refunds or reimbursements for travel-related expenses under any circumstances.
If any given race day hits its cap and proceeds as planned but later gets cancelled or postponed due to anything other than COVID-19 (i.e. inclement weather), no refunds will be processed. Under this scenario, registrants will receive a partial credit for their entry fees that may be used at future REVEL events.
During the registration process runners are required to enter their true expected race pace. This data will be used to divide runners into waves. Once the registration cap is hit for each day, runners will receive an additional email with information about their wave assignment. Because there will be a time buffer in between each wave, many runners will start the race well after a typical race start time. It is therefore advisable to not book any travel plans until after receiving confirmation of wave assignments.
Health and Safety
The health and safety of each runner is the absolute top priority at this event. Extreme measures will be taken to ensure that public health guidelines are met and exceeded.
The race will be ran in an "open road" format, meaning that although there will be cones placed along the route, there will still be active traffic flowing up and down the course during the race. Runners will be required to remain in the downbound shoulder plus one foot of the vehicle lane (opposing traffic) as they descend the mountain.
Each of the intersections along the final mile of the course have a stop sign for cross-traffic, meaning that runners will never cross a street with free-flowing traffic. As pedestrians, runners will have the right-of-way to use the crosswalk at each of these intersections. However, runners are encouraged to be extremely cautious and watch for vehicles prior to crossing any street.
In addition to offering a fully-supported run down an incredibly beautiful mountain and getting the best PR and BQ opportunity you may ever have, we strive to make REVEL Mt Lemmon Limited Edition even more memorable with the additional perks listed below.
There will be photographers at multiple locations along the course to take pictures of your race experience. Be sure to smile big, make a tough face, or strike a pose for the cameras as you go by. Please make sure your bib is visible as well.
All race photos will be provided for free. It is crazy to pay $50 to $100 for a single image download like you may have experienced before. Your memories are on us! Your photos will be made available shortly after the race along with your results on the results page.
Medals will be given to all participants who cross the finish line. We have created special Limited Edition medals to commemorate this unique race. This huge, high-quality bling will be equal to your effort and is certain to win a place at the top of your medal collection. The medals shown below are examples from the REVEL Mt Charleston Limited Edition race.
Every participant will receive a high-quality, gender-specific tri-blend shirt. Rather than yet another tech shirt to clutter your closet, this shirt will be one that you can wear casually in social settings or at work. We guarantee that this will be a shirt you'll want to keep.
REVEL swag will be included in your race bag that you will receive during Packet Pickup. In addition to other items, all runners will receive a pair of gloves and a mylar blanket to be used in case of cold weather. Iced towels will be given to all runners as they cross the finish line.
Finish Line Food
Once you cross the finish line, you will be welcomed with delicious food to refuel your body. Plenty of carbs, goodies, and cold drinks will be all yours.
TravelRunners are encouraged to wait to book their travel until receiving confirmation that their race day has met its cap.
If you are traveling to REVEL Mt Lemmon Limited Edition, the closest airport is Tucson International Airport just 20 miles from the finish line. An alternate option is the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport located 90 minutes away in Phoenix, AZ.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will not be a traditional large pre-race expo. Instead there will be a simple Packet Pickup from 3:00-6:00PM each day preceding your race day. On Thursday, February 25 Packet Pick-Up will be held at at Performance Footwear 5350 E Broadway Blvd #170, Tucson, AZ 85711 On Friday, February 26 it will be held at Tanque Verde High School 4201 N Melpomene Way, Tucson, AZ 85749. Participants must pick up their packet on the day PRECEDING their race day.
A photo ID is required to pick up your race bag. We will allow individuals to pick up someone else's bag, but will require a digital or hardcopy of the person's ID and a written note authorizing them to do so.
If you will be arriving in town after the hours of Packet Pickup or are otherwise unable to attend, you may elect to have your packet shipped to you for an additional fee. This option may be selected during registration.
Parking & Busing
REVEL Mt Lemmon Limited Edition is a point-to-point course, and as such we will bus you from the parking area to the start line. The cost of busing is included in your entry fees. You do not need to reserve a spot on the bus, as your bib is your ticket to ride. ALL PARTICIPANTS must take a bus to the start lines (you may not park at or be dropped off at the start lines).
Depending on your assigned wave, buses will depart from 5:00-6:45AM. The bus loading and departure zone is located at the finish line at Tanque Verde High School, 4201 N Melpomene Way, Tucson, AZ 85749. Because the number of participants will be capped, there will be sufficient parking available at this location for all runner vehicles. There is currently no shuttling from the partner hotel to race morning busing.
You will receive a race bag at Packet Pickup. This bag is for you to take to the starting areas. A number that matches your race bib will be put on the outside of your race bag. This is to identify your bag at the finish area after the race, and you will need your bib to prove ownership of your bag when you pick it up. Please carry any belongings to the starting area in this bag, as opposed to any other personal bags, which cannot be identified by your race number. Bags will be left on the bus at the start area, and the bus will transport the bags to the finish line for you.
Timing & Bibs
The races will be chip-timed using timing tags adhered to the back of your bib. Your time will begin when you cross the starting line, and will stop when you cross the finish line. Overall winners (top 3 in each race) will be determined in accordance with USATF regulations by gun time. Please do not tamper with the timing chips, as they cannot be replaced once linked to your bib number.
Because the timing tag is adhered to the back of your race bib, it is important that you do not cover your bib with clothing or other objects that may interfere with the tag reader when you are crossing the start and finish lines. Furthermore, in order to ensure that race volunteers, officials, and photographers can properly identify you, you must wear your bib on the front of your person in an unobstructed position. If the photographers along the course can not see your bib number, we will have no way to get your photos to you.
There will be ten aid stations on the marathon course and six on the half marathon course. All aid stations will be supplied with electrolytes, water, porta-potties, and basic first aid supplies. Additionally, select aid stations will offer doTERRA Deep Blue muscle rub and Honey Stinger energy gels (Chocolate, Vanilla, & Acai Pomegranate).
Runners must finish the race in 6.5 hours or less after being dropped off at the start line.
Based on the USATF certification standards the course is measured on tangents or SPR-Shortest Possible Route. Therefore if you run on the inside or outside line the entire length of the race your GPS may reflect a distance slightly greater than 13.1 or 26.2.
Although we cannot predict the weather, we can provide some historical weather averages for the area on the date of the race:
While we will provide gloves and mylar blankets, we highly recommend that you come prepared for cold temperatures at the start line by layering and then shedding your layers to put in your drop bag just before the race begins.
Due to COVID-19 precautions and regulations set by permitting authorities, spectators will not be allowed along the entirety of the route or at the start lines/finish line. Roaming course marshals will be present to ensure groups are not congregating.
