I am happy to be the race director for the 2018 Area 51 Alien Run to benefit the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. This is the 1st Annual race in beautiful Area 51, Nevada and we could not do it without the amazing contributions from our sponsors, the community, and of course YOU the participants!  Thank you so much for your support of this event.  Can’t wait to see you on race morning!


Sincerely, Will Shimono

Course Description Half Marathon and 15K: Runners will start at the Alien Research Center; following the course markings along the Extraterrestrial Highway until they begin to ascend a steep grade at mile 2 encountering their first aid station. After reaching Hancock Summit, runners will turn around and wind down the Extraterrestrial Highway back to the Alien Research Center. After reaching the second station runners will descend down into the Tonopah Basin making their way towards the Alien Research Center and the infamous “35 foot Alien” Once at the Alien their efforts are rewarded with spectacular views of the Tonoapah Basin.

The Area 51 Alien Run, Half Marathon and 5k Race are part of the Alien Brain Project, created by Alien Tequila. Benefiting the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.
