Runners in both the full and half marathons start their race near the campground and parking lot of the area known as Boulder Beach, which looks out onto the shores of Lake Mead. From there, runners follow the half marathon route south along Lakeshore Road toward the Nevada Highway (Highway 93) for the opening stretch, and then head onto the paved trail that parallels the road, known as the River Mountains Loop Trail. The course will also take runners through a number of small tunnels along the trails, and finish back at Boulder Beach.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
