December is an exciting month for most. Winter is in it’s prime, and in Arizona this means absolutely perfect running weather. So, this year I decided to complete 2 bucket list races in one.
On December 5th, I will be running in 2 states, 2 time zones, all in ONE DAM GREAT RACE! The Laughlin/Bullhead City 1/2 Marathon and 5K is my winter destination race.
“The sunshine and clear skies of the Mohave Desert in Nevada and Arizona make December an ideal month to finally fulfill the New Year’s Resolution or to get in that one last race of 2015. You train hard, you sacrifice, you endure months of pain and effort – don’t you deserve a chance to PARTY at the end of an Epic Race?”
The race starts and finishes in front of the Laughlin Outlet Center. The 1/2 marathon is set to start at 7:00am and the 5k will begin shortly after at 7:30am.
The half not only takes you through 2 states and 2 time zones, but also includes 10 miles of road and 3.1 miles of trail running through the gorgeous Mojave Desert.
You will also run across the Davis Dam, surrounded by views of Lake Mohave and the Colorado River.
The 5K run takes you along the scenic banks of the Colorado River.
All finishers receive a FREE Microbrew beer from PINTS Brewery, tech tee, medal, and chip timing, and proceeds benefit Operation Gratitude and the Boys & Girls Club of the Colorado River. Prizes for the top 3 finishers in 13 different age groups will also be awarded!
With room rates at $40 per night, there is no reason not to join the party for a DAM good time. Call 1-800-667-4837 and mention code: LAUGHLIN RUNNERS 2015
The post race party will include a live band on Casino Row at host hotel Edgewater Casino Resort. The hotel is walking distance from the start line, and so is the after party!
