Welcome to Laughlin, Nevada! Located 90 miles south of Las Vegas, 230 miles north of Phoenix and 280 miles east of Los Angeles, this venue is conveniently central for our Southwest Spartans.
Laughlin is a diamond in the desert. Sitting by the Colorado River, its known for gaming, entertainment, and water recreation. This lively strip in the middle of the desert is prepared for a Spartan invasion with its nine different resorts with nearly 11,000 rooms.
This area is so much more than a family-friendly entertainment attraction. Its part of the Mojave Desert, the driest desert in North America, growing 2,000 species of plants and home to a protected desert tortoise. While running on course youll be surrounded by breathtaking mountain ranges, including Spirit Mountain. Yuman-speaking Native Americans believe Spirit Mountain to be the center of all creation.
The Sprint and Super courses will be a mixture of dusty desert tracks, beautiful mountain views and flat, wide-open spaces. While you wont encounter elevation gain or mud on this course, you can use this as an opportunity to open up your stride and run wild.
