LAS VEGAS (Feb. 7, 2017) – Skye Canyon, a 1,700-acre master-planned community in Northwest Las Vegas hosts its second annual Skye Canyon 8K Trail Mix and 5K Road Race on Sunday, March 19, 2017. Races start at 8 a.m. at Skye Canyon Park and are open to runners and walkers of all ability levels. Early bird discounts are available so runners and walkers are encouraged to register early.

The event is a part of Skye Canyon’s inaugural Fit Fest, a family-friendly fitness and active living themed festival that includes fitness classes, Silent Savasana yoga, an artisanal market and active lifestyle vendor expo, and other fun activities. The date also marks Skye Canyon’s one-year anniversary.
The 5K course takes runners and walkers through Skye Canyon’s neighborhoods while the 8K course starts on the road and then takes participants to nearby designated trails.
Registration includes a t-shirt and goodie bag; race packet pick up will be held at Las Vegas Cyclery on Saturday, March 18 from 12-4 p.m. and on-site the morning of the race. The race is produced by Bristlecone Events.
The event benefits the Outside Las Vegas Foundation (OLVF), a non-profit organization whose mission is to create programming for individuals to develop an appreciation of Southern Nevada’s special outdoor places.
“Our vision for Skye Canyon was to build a community and cultivate a sense community. Our Fit Lives Here events like our 8K and 5K race enhance the active lifestyle experience of those living in Skye Canyon,” said Garry Goett, Chairman and CEO of Olympia Companies, developer of Skye Canyon. “This year’s event marks an important milestone for Skye Canyon as the community held its grand opening one year ago. It’s fitting that we are celebrating with an event that supports the Outside Las Vegas Foundation, whose ideals align with Skye Canyon’s vision.”
