Las Vegas Turkey Trot - Six Tunnels to Hoover Dam, 8th Annual
New Date: Nov 27 2014
Hoover Dam turnaround is now up close and personal.
1 Mile Stroll
Description: It's Vegas, Baby! 18 Miles from the Las Vegas Strip. Breaking News! Entire course has been newly graded and is smooth and hard. 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 Lake Mead National Recreation Area. We run right above Lake Mead
for entire event. No steep climbs here, but there are
gradual "grades" (3%) used in the hauling of supplies to Hoover
Dam during the early thirties. Entire elevation gain is only 392 feet. On the way to Hoover Dam, the
runner passes through six (6) tunnels on this course in each direction. Turnaround is at the red "X". Bodacious. A GUARANTEED SMOOTH course with ONE LAP ONLY. 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. We advise against baby strollers nor animals are allowed on the course during event. Check out:Trail History. A participants view of the course: YouTube
