Devil Day and Night - September 19, 2020

 

**March 23, 2020 Update: For the September 19, 2020 event, we will be offering both morning and evening start times, as well as additional distances. This is in an effort to offer additional racing opportunities under our existing permitted race calendar for those effected by forced race cancellations due to COVID-19.

COVID-19 Promise: As the COVID-19 global pandemic is still unfolding, Calico Racing’s promise to you:

  1. If we are forced to cancel or postpone the event, registrants will receive a 100% transfer of the net entry fee/ add-ons paid into ANY Calico Racing event, good for 1 year (USA), or 2 years (International), based on address on your registration. The entry fee of the race that you are transferring into will be determined by the pricing schedule for that event on the date you complete your registration into the new race. No refund of any difference, if applicable, will be issued.
  2. We will continue to keep you informed as information becomes available and decisions are made.
  3. Once we are finally able to race, we will continue to provide you with a clean and safe environment to race; and will implement additional measures to ensure the health and safety of our community as necessary.
  4. You can review our complete policies HERE.

About Devil After Dark Race:  Over the years, one of my favorite times at our Running with the Devil extreme heat race in late June is when the sun sets, and the night air just beckons you to be outside and run! Devil After Dark brings you that magic with a late summer evening run.

Commencing just before sunset, run through Lovell Canyon while enjoying the stunning sunset as day falls into night. Sun is replaced by stars and moonlight lights the way. The omnipresence of the surrounding canyon under the moonlit starry night is magical! Pinion Juniper trees dance in the shadows and the neon lights of Las Vegas are just minutes away. An enchanted late summer evening run.

**For legal purposes we are operating under our original event name: Devil After Dark, doing business as Devil Day and Night. Medals, shirts, and awards will be branded as “Running with the Devil”, “Labor of Love”, and/or “Devil After Dark” TBD as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds and lead-times dictate.

Course

COURSE

Commencing at an elevation of roughly 4500 feet, runners will experience high desert vegetation to include Joshua Trees, Pinion-Juniper, Mountain Rose, Sagebrush, and a relatively lush Toiyabe National Forest not commonly associated with Las Vegas. The road twists and turns thru the canyon; a true treasure of the Spring Mountains N.R.A. enjoying temperatures ~10 degrees cooler than the Las Vegas Valley, under the late summer nighttime sky.

Still a moderate heat race (daytime), expect daytime highs ~85- 90 degrees and overnight lows ~65. On course provisions will help keep you cool!

This running festival offers something for everyone! We offer the chance to run two events without the headache of travel in between! There are many options: Marathon in the morning + evening 1/2 Marathon; 1/2 Marathon BOTH morning and evening; 10K in the morning + evening 5K... you get the idea! OR of course you can just come and run one event. But if you have ever been "ultra curious" this is a great way to expand your boundaries!

**NOTE: There are 2 Marathons, 2 Half Marathons, two 10Ks, and two 5Ks at this race! One on Saturday morning and one on Saturday evening. Both are exactly the same course. This is to provide runners the opportunity to run back to back events. If you are running one only, it is preferred that you run on SATURDAY MORNING to keep the field most competitive. Or run both! Please pay attention to the different start times when you register!

*Start/ Finish Line: Lovell Canyon Road and Highway 160 Junction, just ~30 minutes drive from the Strip.

5K: 8am Start time OR 6:45PM Start Time
The 5K runs along the paved Lovell Canyon Road as it twists and turns covering rolling and gradually uphill terrain. Runners turn around at mile 1.55, retracing their steps back to the finish line. 4 hour cut off.

10K: 8am Start time OR 6:45PM Start Time
The 10K runs along the paved Lovell Canyon Road as it twists and turns covering rolling and gradually uphill terrain. Runners turn around at mile 3.1, retracing their steps back to the finish line. 4 hour time cut off.

1/2 Marathon: 7:30am Start time OR 6:30PM Start Time
The 1/2 Marathon runs along the paved Lovell Canyon Road as it twists and turns covering rolling and gradually uphill terrain. Runners turn around at mile 6.55, retracing their steps back to the finish line. 4.5 hour cut off.

CLICK HERE FOR 1/2 MARATHON MAP AND PROFILE

Marathon: 7am Start time OR 5PM Start time

The Marathon runs along the paved Lovell Canyon Road for roughly 11 miles twisting and turning covering rolling and gradually uphill terrain. At mile 11 marathoners will turn around and run 2.1 miles out and back along the same paved road, before returning to this same aid station. You will turn around again and return the 11 paved miles back to the finish line. The course is very easy to follow and will be well marked. 17 hour time cut off (morning) or 7 hour time cut off (evening), but marathon specific aid stations will shut down on a 7 hour pace.

50K: 7 am Start time
The 50K runs along the paved Lovell Canyon Road as it twists and turns covering rolling terrain. This is an ~11 mile stretch. You will run this out and back, returning to "Homebase" at your mile ~22. You will then do another shorter out and back along the same stretch to complete the 50K distance. No one climb is too long and for many reasons makes for a great first 50K, a possible PR at the distance, while offering a challenge to seasoned runners. No pacers allowed for the 50K. Total climbing is roughly 2600' with a net zero gain. 17 hour cut off.

50 Miler: 7am Start Time
The 50 miler runs along the paved Lovell Canyon Road as it twists and turns covering rolling terrain. This is an ~11 mile stretch. You will run this out and back 2 times for a total of ~44 miles, plus a final shorter out and back along the same stretch to complete the 50 mile distance. You will never be further than 5.5 miles to your own drop bag (3 locations available), and every 22 miles you'll be back at "race headquarters". No one climb is too long and for many reasons makes for a great first 50 miler, a possible PR at the distance, while offering a challenge to seasoned runners. No pacers allowed for the 50 Miler. Runners may drop down in distance mid-race and be considered an official finisher. Total climbing is roughly 4000' with a net zero gain. 17 hour cut off.

100K: 7am Start time
The 100K runs along the paved Lovell Canyon Road as it twists and turns covering rolling terrain. This is an 11 mile stretch. You will run this out and back 2 times for a total of 44 miles, plus a final shorter out and back along the same stretch to complete the 100K (62 mile) distance. You will never be further than 5.5 miles to your own drop bag (3 locations available), and every 22 miles you'll be back at "race headquarters". No one climb is too long and for many reasons makes for a great first 100K, a possible PR at the distance, while offering a challenge to seasoned runners. While we want everyone to complete the whole 100K distance, if you feel it is not your day after 2 laps (44 miles) you can elect to drop down to the 50 Miler and be an official finisher. Pacers will be allowed for 100K runners only after 44 miles. More specific info about pacers is available under the tab "100K Pacers/ Crew Rules". Total climbing is roughly 5000' with a net zero gain. Runners may drop down in distance mid race and be considered an official finisher. 17 Hour Cut Off.*

**Sunset is at 6:40pm** The course is unlit, and therefore all runners on the course after 6:50pm are required to be reflective from front and back AND wear a headlamp or carry a hand held flashlight.**

*100K runners checking into mile 44 who are considered unlikely to make the 17 hour race cut off for the 100K distance will be directed to drop down to the 50 Mile race, as determined by the Race Director.

** Calico Racing reserves the right to make any necessary course changes required per the permitting body and is subject to final permit approval.

*** This event is held on the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area, Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, under a special use permit.

Parking

PARKING

**2020 Parking will be determined as the race gets closer depending on the size of the field. 

2019 UPDATE: Parking will be at/ near the start/ finish line. Please follow the parking volunteers' directions. Note: We will NOT be running the shuttle from Sandy Valley Road this year.

** Slight changes to parking and shuttle details may be made closer to race day.

Parking at the start/ finish line is reserved for marathon runners only.

All other participants and their spectators will park in the dirt lot off Sandy Valley Road and Highway 160. Directions are below. This parking area is 2.5 miles further west than Lovell Canyon Road, so for those of us coming from Las Vegas you will PASS the start line. You'll see us set up right there off the highway. If you are carpooling- I suggest the driver dropping off the remaining runners at the start line, then proceeding to the parking area. This will reduce the number of people being bused, and will speed up the process for everyone. There will be a few buses running on a rotation to get you from this lot to the start line (about 5 minutes drive). Buses will run continuously to return runners to their cars after the race as demand dictates.

Travel

AIRPORT

Las Vegas' McCarran Airport (LAS) services the Greater Las Vegas area. It is serviced by numerous carriers and has on site car rental companies.

The Las Vegas McCarran Airport is located within 10 minutes of "The Strip".

** For those traveling from out of town- there is NO bus transportation from The Strip to Lovell Canyon. Please see "Directions".  A few taxis may take you out there, but you'll be hard pressed to get one back into town after the race. I suggest renting a car, as rates are reasonable,  and you'll be able to experience Las Vegas' surrounding areas with much more leisure. Why not check out Red Rock Canyon on your way to the race!


Back to Top

Spectators

Spectators are an important part of any race- they give you that boost of energy when you need it most, encourage you when you're feeling low, and can pep you up to fly into the finish line! Calico Racing wants you and your spectators to have a fun and safe experience.

PLEASE NOTE:  There are no concessions at the race venue, and race provided food and beverages are for registered athletes only. Spectators should come prepared to be self sufficient with food, water, shade, and necessities, if desired.

Hotels

HOTELS

With many different appetites for hotels, for this race I have chosen to not have a host hotel, but rather suggest a number of hotels that are most convenient to Lovell Canyon. You can book your rooms directly with the hotels. Note: there are no hotels close to Lovell Canyon, so the hotels listed here are mostly in the Greater Las Vegas Valley.

Camping is available at the race venue. It is primitive and there are no facilities. For more information please search on the web under Spring Mountains N.R.A. and Lovell Canyon.

Camping is also available at Red Rock Canyon Campground.

HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS AND SUITES: 6220 S. Rainbow Blvd/ Las Vegas; (702) 871-4453. This is likely the closest hotel to the race start/ finish, about 18 miles away, and conveniently located just off the I-215 Freeway. It is NOT in the middle of the Strip action, but there are plenty of restaurants nearby.

HOTELS ON THE STRIP: I suggest choosing one on the south end of the strip to be closest to Lovell Canyon.  A few suggestions are:

HOTELS OFF STRIP IN THE SOUTH VALLEY:

OTHERS:

  • Coast Casinos (several properties throughout the valley)
  • Bonnie Springs: for a Wild West feel away from The Strip. This is actually one of the closest hotels: approx. 21 miles to Lovell Canyon
  • Stations Casinos (several properties throughout the valley. Try Red Rock Station Casino for true pampering approx. 32 miles to Lovell Canyon.)

Directions

DIRECTIONS

Lovell Canyon is located southwest of the Las Vegas Valley and is accessed via Lovell Canyon Road off Highway 160 to the north, roughly 13 miles west of the junction between Highways 159 and 160.

100 Miler Pacer/Crew Rules

Runners in the 100K only may have a pacer and/or crew abiding by the following rules only:

• Pacers may join the runner only after mile 44 (2 loops).
• There is NO crew vehicle movement on course Saturday from 7am- 1pm, as there are other events going on during this time and too many runners. Please respect their race too! You may consider driving the crew vehicle to the midpoint aid station access, departing the start line by 6:45am. This will allow your crew vehicle to see you every 11 miles vs. every 22 miles- but they may NOT move their vehicle between the posted hours.
• Parking at the start/ finish line is VERY limited. ALL runners and crews must use the off site parking area and use the shuttle service Saturday 7am- 1pm; if being offered by race management that year, TBD.
• Crew access parking, abiding by the above, is via 3 spots only: Race Headquarters (Start/ Finish); Midpoint, and Sky Ranch (the furthest point).
• You MAY NOT park just anywhere on the course! The stations have been pre-approved by the US Forest Service as being previously disturbed areas. You may NOT destroy ANY vegetation.
• Crews may NOT drive slowly alongside the runners. Pass up to speed and do not delay the normal flow of traffic/ runners.
• Only one crew vehicle per runner at any given one time.
• Crew vehicles are asked to PLEASE be courteous thru the night with their cars' headlights!!
• At this time there is no limit to the number of pacers with a runner at any given time. That said, anything considered excessive will be asked to reduce the number. The determining factor will be the impact on other runners, and will be determined by the Race Director.
• Pacers must be self sufficient with their own food & supplies- taking no aid station provisions except for water.
• Yes, the pacer may mule (carry) their runner's supplies, including water.

• No dogs are to be used as pacers.
• Crews must abide by all posted traffic laws, ranger and course marshal instructions. Parking in designated areas only.
• An ambulance will be staged out of the Start/ Finish area the duration of the event. First aid available at all ultra aid stations.

Heat Training Racing

Training and racing in the heat involves serious risks, including death, and as a result necessary precautions must be taken to ensure your safety, relative comfort, and the achievement of your goals. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke pose a serious threat and you should learn to recognize these signs. Dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, stomach issues, kidney failure, and footcare problems can all quickly put an end to your event.

You are HIGHLY encouraged to read more about these topics. Numerous articles posted on the web are available.

**PLEASE join us on Facebook by "liking" Calico Racing on Facebook.com. We will  have a discussion group on there covering all topics you will need to consider for race day success.**
