2 States, 2 Time Zones, 1 DAM Great Race! An amazing run in the brilliant Laughlin, Nevada sunshine with spectacular scenery, awesome finishers medal, tech tee shirt, chip timing, on-course photographer, FREE BEER, 13 age groups with prizing, raffle prizes and an epic post-race PARTY. Half marathon course is net negative 433’ of SWEET DOWNHILL, perfect for that next PR! Plus you get to run into the FUTURE as you run from Nevada, into Arizona (different time zone) and back over the Davis Dam with Lake Mohave on one side and the breathtaking Colorado River on the other. You run alongside the river to the finish line in the heart of Casino Row. Road Trip…Race…PARTY!
Witness a breathtaking sunrise over the Black Mountains in Arizona while the casino lights wink out in the growing sunlight. You run along a fully closed interstate highway before veering off toward the Davis Dam and the Nevada/Arizona border. The Dam stands stalwartly in the distance as you ascend the brief incline, round the mountain pass and are rewarded with a breathtaking view of Lake Mohave to the North and the rapidly flowing Colorado River to the South. You pause at the famous “Selfie Spot” where flags from both AZ and NV denote the line delineating the State’s borders. The clock on your phone is momentarily confused as an additional hour is added to your race time! At the turnaround ahead you retreat back to the sanity of Nevada and learn that your trip to the finish line includes a running path sculpted along the shores of the Colorado River. Up and over an artistic pedestrian bridge, you find yourself running in front of Laughlin’s famous Casino Row. You glance at your watch and realize that the net negative 433’ of SWEET DOWNHILL has resulted in a great time! The finish line is just ahead where a young volunteer drapes a well-deserved medal around your neck. The post race PARTY, with the hand-crafted, award winning FREE BEER awaits its most important guest – YOU!
