Registration is now open for the Northern Nevada Wildland Fire Awareness Multi-hour Trail Event in Reno, hosted by University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Living With Fire Program in partnership with the Bureau of Land Management and Desert Sky Adventures. All proceeds from the race will benefit firefighters injured in the line of duty or the families of fallen firefighters.
The event is Saturday, May 13, at Bartley Ranch Regional Park, 6000 Bartley Ranch Road in Reno. Participants can choose how long they want to run, either one, three or six hours, and then they see how many laps around the one-mile flat, dirt trail loop that they can run in the chosen amount of time. Participants can register as solo runners or as teams. The six-hour race begins at 7 a.m., the three-hour race begins at 8 a.m., and the one-hour race begins at 9 a.m.
Cost is $30 until April 1, $35 between April 2 and May 11, and $40 on May 12 and 13. Cost includes a tech t-shirt, goodie bag, finisher’s medal, snacks, a downloadable race photo and refreshments, including beer courtesy of the Brewer’s Cabinet.

There will be a variety of fire engines and displays of educational information, along with a visit from Smokey Bear. The public is invited to come out and cheer on the runners, visit with firefighter representatives, and enjoy Nevada’s outdoor beauty. At 10:30, there will also be a “Wildfire Preparedness and Prevention Treasure Hunt”, with fun prizes for participants.
