Through a REVEL fundraiser, Launch Team has been able to reduce the cost of the Mt Charleston training program by $75 to the first 20 youth that sign up. For only $125, you can sign your youth up for the winter session of Launch Team to train for the REVEL Mt Charleston Half Marathon in Las Vegas.
Training will start in February. The Launch Team will rent buses/vans for travel and arrange lodging for a three day trip that culminates in running the half marathon. Volunteer coaches will travel with the group as chaperones. Parents can also sign up and join their youth on the trip and at the race.
There will be two training locations: Sugar House and Jordan River Parkway in Draper. Other locations will be added based on demand.
The program fee for the first 20 signups is only $125 and that includes:
The teams will meet Saturday morning and one evening during the week for training. Due to unknown winter conditions, inside trainings may be an option on bad weather days. Locations on these days will be determined as they arise.
Registration for summer Launch Team is also open now as well, which trains youth for the REVEL Big Cottonwood half marathon and has 6 locations to choose from.

Things To Do: Mt Charleston
There are hikes for all abilities and distances near Mt Charleston, but if you want a short (1.5 miles one way) hike to see great views of the course, you have got to do Cathedral Rock. The trail starts right near the full marathon start. It climbs about 1000ft, so it is strenuous, but nothing that you couldn't handle the days before or after a marathon. Afterward treat yourself to a post-hike meal at the Mt Charleston Lodge and make sure to tell them you are doing the half or full marathon.
To plan your Mt Charleston visit, check out the Go Mt Charleston website.
REVEL's Marathon & Half Hydration is provided by POWERADE. Thank you for providing the fuel to power through.
Congratulations to Grant Nesbitt for winning the HOKA One One Boston Sweepstakes! Grant crushed the Big Cottonwood course with a 3:19:10 BQ and will receive one roundtrip ticket to Boston and a 3-night stay. Grant came off a torn plantar fascia injury 5 years ago. During his recovery he tried every shoe he could find only to be left with shooting pain. It wasn't until his friend introduced him to HOKA's that he realized he had a chance to run again. After pain free running, Grant was back to doing what he loved!
