Saturday, March 2, 2024 • Lake Havasu, AZ
Welcome to the fourth (4th) annual Havasu Half Marathon and 5k; an epic running event famous for its course that takes runners over and under the London Bridge, along wondrous coastlines, all within range of an epic beachfront.
Mostly flat with rolling hills, all participants can expect spring-like temperatures and sunshine, making for the perfect day for PRs and post-race beach parties!
Home of the London Bridge, Havana differs from many cities in Arizona, offering visitors and locals alike a unique beachfront resort destination rather than the expected desert landscape that the rest of Arizona provides.
With a stunning coastline and a 60-mile stretch of waterways, it’s an incredible place to visit, not only to complete a half marathon but to explore, adventure, and escape reality whilst on vacation!
This race kicks off at the London Bridge Beach in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, at 7:00 am sharp, ultimately looping back to finish where it all started; the beach!
To begin, runners will climb 31 feet to the peak of the London Bridge, all within the first mile. From there, it’s off the island heading North along the London Bridge. Once runners exit the bridge, it’s an immediate right onto Sunset Drive as runners vere counterclockwise as they explore the neighborhoods of Havasu.
Once the loop is complete, runners will ultimately find themselves heading back toward the London Bridge, downhill in pursuit of the finish line as the beach party awaits.
As a USATF Certified course, this race begins at 7:00 am and ends at 11:30 am, offering runners a four-and-a-half (4.5) hour time limit to finish.
Once finished, join all participants for some craft beer at the local Hanger 24 Beer Garden post-race to celebrate the completion of the half marathon and show off your decadent finisher’s medal while you’re at it!
