Havasu Half Marathon & 5K routes


Lake Havasu City is the perfect place to party like it's Spring Break, so why not break some personal records while you're at it. This half marathon and 5k start in the heart of the city, just steps from the sparkling waters of the Colorado River and the world-famous London Bridge, brought over all the way from London, England, in 1967.

The route starts and ends at the beach, and zips you along the shores of the dazzling Colorado River in Lake Havasu State Park, showcasing the best of what the city has to offer. The half marathon will be an out and back course, finishing with a tour of the island before a blissful downhill breeze to the finish line. The 5K course is a beautiful tour of the island, with runners being spared from the hot sun by the cool breeze floating off the river.

The route is fast and flat, and the event is the perfect opportunity to smash your PB, before proceeding to the epic Beer Garden to celebrate with some of Arizona's finest local beers.
