    • Did the 5k Run in 2018

      As someone who lives in Long Beach, it was not difficult to navigate through the area and parking situation. There seemed to be a great traffic flow, it was not jam-packed with cars. It was a beautiful run along the water, hardly any incline and only one set of 2-step stairs to run through, with proper signage so runners could not miss it and trip. The 10K departs first and due to the trail being back and forth, you do run into 10K runners on their back half of the race, but only for a short while. It makes for a great cheering session. Participants dressed up and it made the ambiance more fun as well. Overall a fun time!

    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      It's a good idea to bring your own nutrition. They had water and Gatorade on course but no gels, or snacks.
    • Did the Marathon in 2018

      This course is nice because it is relatively flat, although there are a few minor inclines to test the legs. I ran the marathon and the out and back (x2) format was a little difficult mentally but the cool ocean breeze and the ocean views made for a very nice race.

      It was pretty much what i was expecting, it was exciting and fun

    About the event
    From the organiser

    The December weather in Laughlin and Bullhead City is perfect for an early morning race crisp and clear, with high temperatures in the high 60s and visibility for miles.

    The Mojave Desert is one of the most picturesque, peaceful and tranquil places to run on Earth.

    This Race delivers a downhill yet challenging course, amazing sights such Lake Mohave, running alongside the Colorado River, an opportunity to traverse the Davis Dam into Arizona and back.

    The post race party is hosted at the Tropicana Hotel & Casino steps away from Vegas-style Casino Gaming action, live shows, fine dining, night clubs and so much more!

    Your non-running support team will find off-roading, championship golf, hiking, ghost towns, concerts, and a variety of other excursions.

    Join us for an unforgettable Race + Vacation experience where you'll run:

    Two States, Two Time Zones, One DAM Great Race!

      Look around! This race is set in the desert but you have beautiful mountains with the river and Lake Mohave!
    • Did the 5K in 2018

      If you are looking for a fun, fast and not too crowded race, then you should check out Run Laughlin Half Marathon, 5K & 10K. From the time I checked in to the time I drove away fromt eh after party, I was all smiles. The only thing that is personally sad about this race, is that the 5K runners don't get the experience of running across the dam, across state line, across 2 time zones.
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      You awaken as you walk through the muted sounds of slot machines paying out as you make your way to embark on your ride to the starting line. You're whisked away aboard a posh tour bus and arrive at Laughlin High School where you sit and stretch comfortably within the gym, away out of the cool morning temps. The course is well marked out and beware the miles that begin once you leave the High School grounds - miles 1.5 - 4 are a rigorous, gradual uphill. Abandon your goal pace - but you'll make it up in the later miles (promise). Once you turn onto Hwy 163, you run East into the rising sun as you happily descend for the next four miles. The scenery is spectacular. I encourage you to pause and take photos atop the Davis Dam - with Lake Mohave to the North and the Colorado River stretching out to the South. The course winds up on Casino Row and the finish party was first rate.
