Beyond Limits Running, the producer of the nationally recognized Jackpot Ultra Running Festival in Southern Nevada, is proud to announce the 2nd Annual Happy Hippie Harvest Run will take place Saturday, November 7, 2020 at the iconic Gilcrease Orchard in Las Vegas. Not only will happy hippie runners have an opportunity to run a 5K, 10K and half-marathon through this historic 90-year old orchard, but for those wanting to really go beyond limits, 6-hour and 12-hour timed races are now available!
Runners will work-up a healthy hippie appetite as they run past apples, pears, peaches, cucumbers, sweet potato, squash, eggplant and of course the famous Gilcrease Orchard pumpkins. Since the new 2.5 mile flat and fast course meanders through the entire 67-acre orchard, runners will have a chance to get their happy hippie on as they say hello to the resident chickens, tortoises, bees and owls. This is your chance to don your best hippie running attire and join your fellow hipsters as you run the 2nd Annual Happy Hippie Harvest Run.
Ultra Distances Now Available
Beyond excited to announce the addition of a 6-hour and 12-hour race to the Happy Hippie Harvest Run line-up. In our opinion, this event offers the fastest non-track course in the country for 6-hour and 12-hour race performances. The entire 2.5 course consists of newly paved wide asphalt paths with no sharp turns and with an elevation gain/loss of 20 feet per loop and mild early November temperatures, we expect many runners to PR and potentially set records. The Orchard will be closed to the public during the event, so there will be no pedestrian interference. The new course will be USATF certified and sanctioned. The 6-hour and 12-hour ultra-runners will have a separate aid station stocked with traditional ultra-race food, proteins, snacks, electrolytes, etc.
