"When else do you get the chance to race up a mountain and then save your knees by ziplining down? It's a fun day all-around with great people *and* part of your entry fee goes toward helping local students get the support they need to be successful"
Boulder City, NV (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
It's the Second Edition of The Dirty Vert, the only trail running event in Las Vegas where participants get to run up Red Mountain and ride the Flightlinez Bootleg Canyon ziplines back down! Get ready for this exciting, unique event!

The Dirty Vert will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the Boulder City High School Student Success Fund to help students who might not otherwise be able to afford the application fees or testing fees associated with attending college.
The Dirty Vert
In starting waves of 50 runners, you will race on foot to the top of Red Mountain in Bootleg Canyon where you will cross the finish line, then proceed to ride the four zip lines back down to the gazebo area where we'll be waiting with awards, food, and more!
There are 200 slots total available, with 50 in each wave. We'll have two waves in the morning at 8:00am and 9:00am, and two waves at night at 7:00pm and 8:00pm. There will be a mandatory zip line safety meeting and equipment demonstration 30 minutes before each wave at the Bootleg Canyon gazebo. For example, if participating in Wave 2 at 9:00am, attendance is required at the 8:30am safety meeting.
There is no age limit for this event, but due to the requirements on the zip lines, participants must weigh between 75 and 250 pounds.
Flightlinez is committed to serving the community. Both locations in the Las Vegas area, Flightlinez Las Vegas on The Fremont Street Experience and Flightlinez Bootleg Canyon, hold charity events to support both local and national causes in an effort to both increase awareness and give the community a way to really enjoy giving back.

Started in 2006, is the oldest, largest trail running company in Las Vegas. In 2013 they have 5 races scheduled for the year, 2 of which in the fall are as-of-yet unannounced. Desert Dash was purchased in January of 2013 by 3 gentlemen after falling in love with trail running. The trio is excited to see what they can do with the company and how they can benefit the runners at all their events!
All of our races are done on challenging, but doable courses that they always run beforehand...They won't put a runner on a course they're not familiar with themselves.
