Once again we will have Practice Runs on some of the most epic legs of the RTO course…

Dates and Legs are subject to change.

  • 4/14/24 Sunday – Leg 30
  • 4/20/24 Saturday – Leg 33
  • 5/5/24 Sunday – UPDATED This Practice Run will be your “running in the dark” practice from the Reno Running Co. Summit Store at 4:00 am. You can just do the run or you can do the run while also participating in the Wings for Life World Run Reno. Either way, you must be wearing the appropriate gear required by the RTO.*
  • 5/11/24 Saturday – Leg 4
  • 5/18/24 Saturday – Leg 7

*From dusk till dawn, runners must wear a lighted vest or reflective vest, then two blinking lights visible on their back and carry a lighted flashlight, a headlamp or waist lamp on the front. But please have a lot more.  Plan to decorate yourself in enough lighting to be visible from the front and the back. Yes, a human Christmas tree is the goal and what we want to see!

GarminGarmin, one of our generous RTO sponsors, will give everyone a raffle ticket for every Practice Run they attend. After the last Practice Run, we will draw for a new Garmin watch up to $500 value.

Practice/Preview Runs are for everyone!
You don’t have to be running the RTO, Capital or Comstock Odyssey. You don’t have to be running these particular legs. It’s a great chance to meet teams who might be looking for runners and vice versa. It’s a great team bonding opportunity.

Details will be provided on the RTO FB page and Race178 IG page the week before the run as well as in race communications if you are registered. If you are not on social media or registered for the race, please email Kelly for details.
