LEG 1 of the LC Adventure Relay is 4.6 miles, all pavement run through the cool town of Ursine and the beautiful Eagle Valley, then ending the leg at Rose Valley turnoff for the first exchange, aid station #1.
Leg 2 of LC Adventure Relay is 2.8 miles of pavement. This is a beautiful run going by hay fields in Rose Valley and running through the awesome canyon of Echo Canyon State Park, it is there that exchange and aid station #2 will be.
Leg 3 of the LC Adventure Relay is 3.8 miles. This leg is cool because you will run the dam road at Echo Canyon State Park, such a great look at the reservoir and the canyon in the distance. The first mile* (*approximately) is dirt road then the remaining mileage will be pavement taking you through Dry Valley, another stretch of hay fields and taking you to exchange and aid station #3.
Leg 4 of LC Adventure Relay is 5.1 miles of pavement with slight elevation gain. This leg is a bit tougher then the prior legs but you’ll pass by the old Delmue farmhouse and barn, very cool for sure then end up at aid station and exchange #4.
Leg 5 of the LC Adventure Relay will be the toughest leg of Relay, it skirts around the bottom of “L” Mountain. you’ll get a real close look at the L and Panaca Valley, it’s 6.4 miles and elevation gain about 500 ft but good news elevation lose is 900 ft. It’s all off-road quad trail at about mile 2 to mile 3 is rocky trail. This leg is recommended for your long distance runner but also good on trails. Water pack is advised for this leg!
At mile 3 it’s all downhill, then it will take you to Pacana Springs Rd where runners will run towards Condor Canyon for aid station and exchange #5.
Leg 6 of LC Adventure Relay is 4.8 miles. This leg is dirt roads running up to first water crossing of west side of Condor Canyon then back to “Through the Fields”. Most of this run is flattish, a couple small hills. Beautiful run though, it’s worth running almost 5 miles!!
This leg ends close to State Hwy 93 at exchange and aid station #6.
** this will be an air exchange to leg 7, leg 7 runner will be staged across street!**
Leg 7 of LC Adventure Relay is a short 2.5 miles but don’t let that fool ya…it’s a tough stretch. Starts at air exchange from leg 6 at a paved path paralleling Hwy 93, continues into Cathedral Gorge State Park, more paved road, approximately the last half mile or so is a hiking trail at the state park and takes you to the wonderful stairs that will kick your butt in the nice heat of day, ending at exchange and aid station #7 at Miller’s Point gazebo.
Leg 8 of LC Adventure Relay is same as leg 7 just going back downward through Cathedral Gorge State Park to Hwy 93 air exchange to leg 9. Hiking trail from Miller’s Point then pavement, 2.5 miles.
**Again, air exchange to Leg 9, runner should be staged across street as aid station #8 (also same aid station #6).**
Leg 9 of the LC Adventure Relay is 2.4 miles of dirt road and takes you by the Bullion Ruins and back through the fields like leg 6. Leg 9 will end at exchange and aid station 9, (same aid station as #5).
Some history for you….
Bullionville is a ghost town in Lincoln County, 1/4 mile east of Hwy 93, one mile north of Panaca and 10 miles south of Pioche, Nv. The town prospered between 1870 and 1882, and is now abandoned. Bullionville was established in February 1870, after the Raymond & Ely five-stamp mill was moved to the site. The site was selected because of the dependable supply of water from Meadow Valley Creek. The camp, initially named Ely City, was renamed Bullionville later that year.
Leg 10 of LC Adventure Relay is 3.4 miles of dirt road that passes by the refreshing Panaca warm spring.
This is the last leg of race and definitely in the warmer part of the day, stop and take a dip to cool off, then continue on your way to finish line at LC Fairgrounds!
