Next Rhino: Night Race July 26th, 2014
In the past, this race has been an obstacle course race, however, with short notice the armory is no longer available. Instead, we are offering a night trail race on the Mountain Bike Trails of Bootleg Canyon for only $35, which includes timing and a Rhino Night Race Buff! We also be re-creating the Camp Rhino Race from last year in December at Camp Rhino, where we converted the entire facility into a ‘race track’ of obstacles.
You will be trekking along the mountain bike paths, following 1,000 glosticks while overlooking Lake Mead and Las Vegas. In 2012, for many people, the trail run was the best part of the night race!
2013 Rhino: Night Race Results
Hundreds of Rhinos braved the tough Rhino: Night Race through 30 obstacles; including a brutal Slide-For-Life, Rubber Duck Crawl, Ammo Carry and a 12 Foot Rope Wall. Crawling through silty sand in the dead of the night carrying a training gun slung over their shoulders, racers commented on the ingenuity of Camp Rhino obstacle builder Jathan Cox. Even though it’s a small, local race, the Rhino Course races always deliver on cool courses and obstacles. This particular race was solely to raise money for the FRG Family Day for the 422nd ESB. Rhino Course is looking forward to putting on more races in collaboration with the 422nd ESB. Stephen Belcher of the National Guard had a major part in the set-up and coordination of the event, along with FRG Chairperson Nichole Nguyen of the 422nd ESB.
Congratulations to everyone who got out of their comfort zone May 31st, and a special recognition to AJ Wiest, Leah Erickson and Hillary Francis for completing 3 laps and 90 obstacles on the course.
Everyone who participated in the set-up, race-day, and tear-down were all volunteers donating their time, including Camp Rhino and Boot Camp Las Vegas Staff. We are so thankful that all of you are so supportive of our local race and plan on doing better every year!
