A strong run and a little bit of luck can go a long way in Las Vegas. On April 26, it could help runners in the XTERRA Lake Las Vegas 21K Trail Run get to Hawaii.
Every age-group winner in the XTERRA Lake Las Vegas 21K Trail Run on April 26 will earn a free entry to the XTERRA Trail Run World Championship at Kualoa Ranch, Hawaii, in December.
The XTERRA Lake Las Vegas Trail Runs will take place on a desert course just outside The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa, which is 17 miles off the famous Las Vegas Strip. The event is open to runners of all ages and skill levels. There are three courses to accommodate the various levels of runners – a 21-kilometer long course, as well as a 10K and 5K.
The 21K course at Lake Las Vegas has drawn positive reviews from past runners for its unique terrain and breathtaking views.
The combination of hard-packed sand, loose rocks of various sizes, and a lack of forestation has led some runners to describe it as “like running on the moon.”
The runs will be held the day after the XTERRA West Championship off-road triathlon, giving XTERRA families a great opportunity to make it a "Live More" weekend.
Registration for all three distances of the event is open at www.xterralakelasvegas.com.
