2015 Club and Race Team Announcement

Posted by Alejandro Belmares on November 23, 2014 at 11:50 PM Comments comments (0)

With the passage of the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon last week and the Turkey Trot this week, most of the major road racing events have passed marking the end of the road racing season for 2014.

The focus for 2015 will begin, and with it we announce the plans for the 2015. NER will continue to be in operations with two separate entities. The club portions will be open to ALL runners looking to be members of a running group. Club members will not be asked to compete at major events, but CAN purchase team gear. Club members will have the option to have their LVTC membership paid for.

Our RACING team will be focus on competing at a high level to represent the Las Vegas running community locally and abroad. The primary goal for the racing team will be to compete in the Las Vegas Track Club's Championship Series and other major events in hopes to earn victories and continue the team's success into a fourth year. Racing team members will be expected to represent the team at every event they partake in with our new racing kit. Racing team members will also have their LVTC membership paid for annually and required races paid for.

Positions are available for both the Men and Women's racing teams but are subject to time standards.

Both club and racing team members will STILL be able to purchase all shoes and equipment for 30% off retail price.

For more information please inbox us or contact us directly at [email protected] or visit our website for more details.

Team News Update

Posted by Alejandro Belmares on January 6, 2014 at 2:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Greetings fellow ninjas/friends/teammates/partners/crazies/and supporters

First off lets start off by saying what a great year we had! All the hard work you each one of you did helped contribute to make it the most successful year in our now 3 years of existence.

Each one of you helped make NER become the most recognized team in the Las Vegas valley. Our presence has also begun to reach little bits of California (due to our racing performances out of state).

I firmly believe that 2013 was just the beginning of what we are capable of not only this season but beyond. By working hard together we will not only continue to thrive at every event we compete at, regardless of the level.

As a large thank you I strive to provide you the best prices and access to all running merchandise (30% off all retail/sale items via our online store AND items found on Eastbay). Through our online store we are able to generate revenue to not only pay for our website but equipment as well. Perhaps the most important factor is collecting of funds for races. WE understand that our sport can be expensive, and not everyone is fortunate to be able to compete. Because of this I strive to ALWAYS keep funds in our account. Through this, our less fortunate members can get shoes, apparel, and races paid for when funds are short.

Previously we sought donations in an effort to maintain afloat. To those who have given we thank you sincerely as you've kept our dream and vision intact. Yet, this is not enough. For this reason we shall introduce a monthly team fee of $5.

This fee will not only cover our website fees, lvtc fees, but the addition of a dietician (Amber Yudell) (for those interested), weight training director (Amber Yudell & Debi McGuire) (for those interested), and photographer (TBD) for major events, physical therapist and more importantly access to training plans from certified coaches (Christine Gentile being one) $5 is a small price to pay to have CONSTANT access to not only these benefits but many more to come! I am sending the first batch of invoices with the team fees tonight!

This year I ask that we use the motto "teamwork makes the dream work" at every training run, race, gathering and anything related to team matters.

Thank you!

36th Annual Las Vegas Notch Run

Posted by Alejandro Belmares on July 8, 2013 at 12:35 AM Comments comments (0)


As of Friday July 5th the Las Vegas Track Club received a call from the USDA Forest Service saying that they will issue a permit for the Notch Run. July 20th is the NEW date for the race. Originally the race was scheduled for Saturday July 6th.

LVTC President Tim Kelly agreed to sign a contract stipulating that if the mountain was still on fire, then there would be no Notch Run. Let's hope that isn't how it plays out.

Stay tuned for more details as they become available.

The 17th Legends of Cross Country is just about a month away. All members of Ninja Endurance Racing will be competing in this event. It is the second of two events, members will be in full showing, the first being the Windy25 in April. This race will allow all club teams to compete in a seeded race. Members who do not compete in the seeded race will represent the team in an open 5K.

The goal for the team is to win the title in the seeded race, thus capturing hardware from every major event in the city.

Scoring for the race will be based on the top 5 runners allotted times. Tie-breakers will be used for the 6th & 7th runners. 

Team members will be given a special discounted rate for the race of $20 as opposed the $35 due to our active involvement with the Las Vegas Track Club. Members who are UNABLE to compete due to injury are asked to attend the race and assist in volunteering the finishing area, bag duty, and much more.
