    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!

    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      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.

      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.
