Course Description: Lake Mead National Recreation Area is 18 miles from the Las Vegas Strip. Tired of the same old races? Then try something really different. Run is out and back on old railroad track long since removed and now part of the Rail-to-Trails Conservancy and the National Park Service. We run t to the Hoover Dam overlook and run right above Lake Mead for entire event for some bodacious views. Route is on newly packed and maintained trails(50%) and paved trails (50%). No steep climbs here, but there are gradual "grades" used in the hauling of supplies to Hoover Dam during the early thirties Trail History. Entire elevation gain is only 497 feet . Show me the ELEVATION chart. On the way to Hoover Dam, the runner passes through six (6) tunnels on this course in each direction. Turnaround is located on the top level of the new parking lot with great views of both Hoover Dam and the new Colorado River Bridge. Aid stations are every 1.6 miles with water and HEED Endurance. This is a spectator friendly event, so please bring your family. There is no vehicular traffic on this course, so you may take as long as you want to finish this event. Location: 18 miles from Las Vegas in Boulder City NV. Four miles north of the Hoover Dam on Hwy 93 (at the exact 4 mile post) on the property of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Turn on Lakeshore Drive at the Alan Bible Visitor Center. Area locator MAP
