Twilight Las Vegas Re-Imagined - September 16, 2017

 

Join us September 16th for the 7th annual Twilight Las Vegas race, with a new twist for 2017! We’ll be doing Twilight as a “Re-Imagined” race, a celebration of previous Twilight races over the past 6 years while enjoying a deep discount on entry fees in exchange for recycled (left over) event shirts, medals, and awards. Las Vegas’s original!

We’ll be offering 5K, 10K, and 1/2 Marathon Distances.

Commencing just before sunset, run while enjoying the stunning sunset as day falls into night. Sun is replaced by stars and moonlight lights the way. The calm serenity of the desert under the moonlit starry night is magical!  An enchanted late summer evening run.

SUNSET PARK MAP

The History Walk paved trails are completely removed from vehicular traffic. The path is mostly flat with only slight inclines/ declines- setting the stage for a PR, or perfect for the beginning runner. The course is walker and stroller friendly. Enjoy views of the Las Vegas Strip, Frenchman's Mountain, landing aircraft, and bunnies!

5K: The 5K course starts at the History Walk near the Dunes Overlook and runs  counter clockwise along  the purple path (see map). The course utilizes portions of the purple, pink, and brown paths- finishing back where you started.

10K: The 10K course starts at the History Walk near the Dunes Overlook and runs  counter clockwise along the purple path (see map). The course utilizes portions of the purple, pink, brown, and turquoise paths, making 2 loops- finishing back where you started.

1/2 Marathon: The 1/2 Marathon course starts at the History Walk near the Dunes Overlook and runs  counter clockwise along the purple path (see map). The course utilizes portions of the purple, pink, brown, and turquoise paths, making 3 loops- finishing back where you started.

**Sunset is at 6:45pm** Portions of the course are unlit, and therefore all runners on the course after 7pm are required to be reflective from front and back AND wear a headlamp or carry a hand held flashlight.**
