Saints & Sinners Half Marathon and Relay
The course starts in Boulder city and promises 13.1 miles of saintly sights and devilish treats!
The race is almost all downhill (average 2% grade, overall downhill with some incline after 3 miles – see elevation chart below) featuring beautiful views from the starting line to the finish at Lake Mead.
It is perfect for beginners, as well as those looking to best their time. The trail includes a series of five tunnels constructed in 1931 where runners can cool off in the shade as they experience a taste of history. Fun fact, these tunnels (a few hundred feet long) were once part of a railroad used to construct nearby Hoover Dam.
