Boots for an adventure race

I'll be competing in an adventure race next summer. It will be roughly 40 miles in 36 hours with a 40# pack. Terrain is hilly high desert.

I'm a semi-seasoned minimalist runner/walker, but have never tried rucking in minimalist footwear. My favorite boots to date for this sort of thing are the Rocky S2V's. While big heavy boots, the have zero drop and a very flexible sole. I used these in this same race two years ago and liked everything except the 3# weight.

I'm a little worried about something with a super thin sole. The terrain is very rocky, and I fear my feet will get beat up without at least a tiny amount of cushion.

Can anyone recommend some boots I should consider?
