Launch Team has partnered with REVEL to offer a training program and a free half marathon race entry to youth 18 and under. The training programs are 12 weeks in duration and are currently being offered for REVEL Mt Charleston (Las Vegas and SLC training), REVEL Big Cottonwood (SLC Training) Portland Half Marathon (Portland training), and REVEL Big Bear (Las Vegas Training).
Launch Team is looking for volunteer coaches. The program is designed to engage youth 18 and under in an effort to set them on the path to the successful completion of a REVEL half marathon. Training groups are currently limited to the Salt Lake, Las Vegas, and Portland area, but we will expand to other locations in the future.
The Launch Team offers a unique opportunity for sponsors to support a nonprofit organization that promotes a healthy and fulfilling experience for young adults with exposure to an important demographic.
