Description

The original St. Patty's Day Run that Mountain Man Events has brought to you since 2000 will now be produced by BBSC Running. 

 

Tired of the racing without views? Run this out and back course on the old railroad  trail that was used to make Hoover Dam! The railroad has since been removed and  is now part of the Historic Railroad Trail that offers amazing views of Lake Mead and a very unique Hoover Dam overlook. You will be gazing at Lake Mead the entire event with some spectacular views!
