Rockies Course Preview

REVEL Rockies

A course strategy – and overall race strategy – is a must for optimal performance on race day. A critical component of your strategy is the course profile itself. Where are the sharp descents? Where are the climbs? Where does the course “flatten” a bit? You want to plan your race with course segments in mind, and with an overall strategy for varying paces throughout. Your varied paces will be dictated by the elevation losses and gains, and you want to know before the race where those variations will occur.

Things To Do - Rockies

Red Rock Amphitheater

Opened in 1942 with seating for 9,525, Red Rocks is a geologically formed, open-air amphitheater that is not duplicated anywhere in the world. With Mother Nature as the architect, the design of the Amphitheatre consists of two, three hundred-foot monoliths (Ship Rock and Creation Rock) that provide acoustic perfection for any performance. From Sting to The Beatles to U2 this one-of-a-kind venue has a story to tell. Take a look north after crossing the finish line and you can see the top of the monoliths! Outside of ticketed concerts it's open to the public free of charge.

Runner Highlight

Manuel Calero

A big shout out to eagle-eyed runner Kathy Schancer who spotted Manuel Calero's wedding ring while running the REVEL Mt Charleston marathon! Manuel had slipped his glove off along with his wedding ring without noticing! Kathy spotted it and ran with it to the finish line. She gave it to a REVEL staff member who held onto it just in case someone reported it missing. And guess what, we were able to reunite Manuel with his ring after he emailed in to ask if anyone turned it in. Thank you Kathy for proving how awesome the running community is! What are the odds?
