Las Vegas fitness buffs defy Mojave Death Race

There are many components to the Mojave Death Race, which starts and ends in Nipton, California, near the California-Nevada state line. For a reference point, Nipton, pop. 60, is 64 miles south of Las Vegas, and roughly a bazillion miles from where hell freezes over.

Heat-induced hallucinations are only one of the aforementioned components. Here are others:

• Teams of 12 (or fewer) verifiable lunatics — er, competitors.

• 24 legs of running, mountain biking and road biking through the Mojave National Reserve.

• 24-hour time limit.

• Tumbleweeds.

• Temperatures of 116 degrees. Or thereabouts.
