Join Lake Mead Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K & 5K

All within Lake Mead National Recreation Area, the run will start at Boulder Beach and lead you onto the paved Mountain Loop Trail. Offering a Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K and 5K, this run will take you on an epic  journey up a mountainous paved trail. The January desert-temperatures and views of Lake Mead make this run a must-do!

The course is an out and back on the very scenic Lakeshore and Northshore Drives, and is run completely on pavement. Aid stations will be well stocked along the course. (see “Aid Stations”). Note the 10K and 5K are run on the paved River Mountains Loop Trail which runs parallel to Lakeshore Drive.

All races start and finish at the Boulder Beach Special Events Beach, which has ample parking. The course is continual rolling hills with some long (about a mile) gradual ascents and decents ranging from 1-8% in grade. Some shorter rollers may be a bit more steep. See the race specific mileage descriptions below.

Course Highlights

Departing the Boulder Beach start line there is a gradual climb of about a 1/4 mile until you turn right onto the River Mountain Loop Trail. The next 3.5 miles are a series of rolling paths and flat sections. Then a 1 mile long uphill climb that will lead to the first turnaround. You'll continue with another 1 mile downhill. Then miles 6.7 to mile 10 are a Loop Trail for a slight gain in elevation. At mile 10 continue straight, running past Boulder Beach. Climb 1.5 mile uphill, going past the entrance of the park before reaching the 2nd turnaround. Head back for 1.75 miles downhill, taking a right at mile 12.8 back to Boulder Beach. Before reaching the start line, you will see a turnaround to start your 2nd lap.
