Run Laughlin is celebrating it’s 3rd year on December 2, 2017 and I wanted to share some reasons why it will be a great race to run! Run Laughlin is a half marathon, 10k (new this year!), and 5k in Laughlin, Nevada. Of course it offers the ushe:
- Tech tee
- finisher’s medal
- Chip timing
- On-course photography
- Post race party with beer for finishers (21+)
But something that I think is really cool and unique about this race is the fact that you will be running through 2 states and 2 time zones! I mean, how many races can say that? You start in Laughlin, Nevada, and cross over the Colorado River via the Davis Dam, and make your way into Arizona, then eventually back to Nevada.
Run Laughlin is a net downhill course, and has a 4 hour time limit, so walkers are welcome. An aspect of this race that I really like is that they raise funds for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Colorado River , which helps over 1,000 kids in their community. I really appreciate when races raise funds to support local organizations, people get to run and have a good time and their money goes to a good cause. It’s a win, win situation!
Laughlin also has some great local attractions – from the Colorado River, Black Mountains, Christmas Tree Pass to gold mine tours, you could make a whole weekend full of adventures!
