Run Laughlin Half Marathon, 5K & 12K routes
The half marathon route takes you through the Mojave Desert, undoubtedly one of the most scenic and peaceful places to run on the planet. Kicking-off from the car-park in front of Laughlin High School, there will be one lap of the school track before heading out to tackle the roads around Laughlin.
After a significant stretch along Highway 163, you will begin to see the Davis Dam silhouette in the distance as you cruise downhill. Not for long however, as you will quickly climb the rim of the dam itself and here behold panoramic views over the awe-inspiring Colorado River. Make sure to stop off at the designated #SelfieSpot to capture these epic views.
The final stage of the run will take you over a bridge before descending back onto Casino Drive, with the photo finish merely 3/4 of a mile ahead.
Conquer the Dam 12k:
Kicking-off from Casino row, the initial stages of the route will meander alongside the Colorado River before reaching the 5k turn and heading on towards David Dam. Once at the Dam, be sure to get your picture taken with your feet in both states.
The final stages of the race will cross over the pedestrian bridge and down toward the vibrant lights of Casino Row.
The 5k route will follow a similar course to the initial stages of the 12k race, and thus get the opportunity to enjoy all the glitz and glamour of Casino Row as well as the natural beauty which surrounds it.
