Course 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 the Lake Mead National Recreation Area and the Rail-to-Trails Conservancy. We run right above Lake Mead for entire event. No steep climbs here, but there are gradual "grades" used in the hauling of supplies to Hoover Dam during the early thirties. Entire elevation gain is only 492 feet. On the way to Hoover Dam, the runner passes through six (6) tunnels on this course in each direction.  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. No race day registration.

Location: 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
