    This race was part of a series that appears to cater to serial marathon and ultrarunners, much like the Mainly Marathon series. In fact, I think it was intentionally scheduled to coincide with the end of the Mainly Marathon Southwestern series, so that marathoners could do 9 races in 9 days if they chose to do so. I ran the first race of this series which was held in Sunset Park in Las Vegas, not too far from McCarran International Airport. The course was conveniently located, easy to find, and surprisingly scenic. The whole Las Vegas area is flat, so you can see the mountains on the horizon from just about anywhere, and this park was no exception. The course was a 5K loop, which was repeated 10 times for the 50K runners. It was a small race, but many of the runners knew each other from doing other races. The course was kind of shaped like an 8, with one larger paved loop around a dry, desert ecosystem, with saltbrush and other desert plants, and a shorter loop on crushed limestone around Sunset Lake. I saw numerous wildlife including cottontail rabbits, jackrabbits, birds, and even a lizard. The course was flat and fast, so is a good placed to try for a personal record. The medals were large and nicely done. The course could have been marked a little better with larger arrows, but everyone seemed to find there way around the first couple of times without a problem. There were generous overall awards and age-group awards for such a small race. Overall, I really enjoyed this race.
