Extreme athletes banded together to design Spartan Races' intense courses orchestrated over standardized distances, each strewn with natural and man-made obstacles to test mind-body fitness, resilience, stamina, and strength, designed to leave participants exhausted and exhilarated. In waves of 200, runners collect smudges and stains as they perform box jumps, haul heavy sandbags, and juke feral linebackers. Depending on where in the world they're participating, the course may be as short as 3 miles or, for extremely practiced athletes, as long as a full marathon.
The skilled pilots and instructors at Las Vegas Glider Rides have accompanied more than 6,000 passengers on flights over Nevada’s scenic desert landscapes. After they’re towed aloft behind planes via 200-foot cables, glider passengers cut loose and set sail for a leisure trip, flying lesson, or acrobatic thrill ride with a seasoned glider pilot. Flyers can also memorialize their trips with an edited 7.5-minute video featuring preshot wing and tail angles and in-cockpit footage of impromptu aerial drag races with passing pterodactyls.

At Sand and Sage Tours, adventurers set out on a two-hour guided horseback trek across the scenic Nevada landscape. Knowledgeable tour guides select horses to match riders' skill levels, whether it's their first horseback jaunt or the ghost of John Wayne inhabits their bodies.

Sand and Sage's exploratory horses transport riders across stunning sands and through gullies. Rides depart seven days a week, though ride times vary depending on the weather.

The certified pilots at Cactus Aviation share the joy of flight with wingless humans, strapping them into a cozy cockpit and flinging them into the sky. Under the watchful gaze of a professional flyer, students take the controls and gently steer one of the professionally groomed mechanical birds through the skies while learning the basics of flight. The instructors stress instrument training to prepare for common low-visibility flight conditions such as flying through clouds or herds of cows on their way to jump over the moon. Budding pilots also practice holding patterns and acquire some of the skills necessary for successful cross-country flights.
