Hello fellow runners!
It has been a while since LVRT has made a blog post. I apologize as life has been a bit chaotic. Life is full of adventures and running seems to help keep things on an even keel. I thank everyone that has frequented LVRT while visiting Vegas. It has been a pleasure meeting so many wonderful people and running with them. No matter where you come from, what your background is, what language you speak...running bridges the gaps and brings us closer together. So, in 2013, lets keep the adventures coming. I look forward to meeting more wonderful people and sharing a beautiful run with them.
Come and run with LVRT in 2013. No matter your experience or ability level, we 'll take you on a beautiful run in and around Las Vegas.
Happy new year!
It is HOT in Vegas! This is the time of year when things get really warm here in the valley. Just when you think it is to hot to run here...wrong! Getting out and exploring the beauty of Vegas in the morning is quite enjoyable. You have plenty of time to squeeze in a 1-2 hour run before things really get hot. If you don't have time to squeeze a run in in the morning, no worries, there is always Mt. Charleston. Mt. Charleston is a beautiful alpine area that gets up to over 10,000 ft elevation. Higher elevation translates into cooler temperatures...how about 20 degrees cooler than the Valley! There are plenty of amazing trails and roads to run up there. So if heat is not your thing, book a tour of Mt. Charleston today!
Stay cool and hydrated while out there in that summer heat. Remember to replenish lost electrolytes as well and drink plenty while visiting us here in Vegas.
Be safe and hap
I want to first thank Jimmy from Pennsylvania for his patience and understanding. Jimmy and LVRT went on a run of the White Rock Loop out at Red Rock Canyon and it was quite an adventure. While trying to show Jimmy one of the natural springs and pools, we sort of took a wrong turn. Needless to say we lost the trail and embarked on a genuine high desert run. It was an interesting run through pointy sage brush, spiny cactus, and rocky terrain. We finally emerged onto the trail after a brief hiatus...albeit with bloody shins! We were scratched up but definitely not defeated. And that was not even the best part. Shortly after I found myself taking a spill! Unbelievable...I promise you Jimmy...this is not the norm. So, I hope you had a great Grand Canyon run and please look us up the next time you are in town.
Come run with LVRT!
Spring is a great time to get out and about in LV. There are an abunbdance of trails to explore and the weather is perfect.
I would like to give s shout out to tracy from Winnipeg. She ran a 20 mile tour of the strip and downtown and did very well. Thank you Tracy for a great run and good luck on your marathon.
Remember to look us up when in town. Stay up to date by visiting www.lasvegasrunningtours.com
What a beautiful day for a run. A huge thanks goes out to Ironman David as we completed a tough, yet rewarding 11.5 mile run throughout Red Rock Canyon. We couldn't have asked for better conditions. We tackled the Grand Circle Trail...started and ended at the visitor's center. It was a pleasure meeting you David and please look up LVRT when you get back to town.
For all of you fans of LVRT, be on the look out for new and challenging tours coming soon. Spread the word and let your friends know about us.
Spring is a beautiful time here in Las Vegas. The weather is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for running....any time of the day. Just in time for the beautiful weather, LVRT is now offering two new tours. One being the 70.3 IM World Championship run course. This run will challenge all ability levels and takes place in Henderson, NV. The run course winds its way through Henderson parks and neighborhoods and ends near the District (shopping and restaurants) and Green Valley Station Hotel/Casino.
The other new tour is the Mob Run Tour. What a cool experience! This run tour starts at the Stratosphere and follows North Las Vegas Blvd. for 2.5 miles. Check out the world famous "Pawn Stars" pawn shop, neonopolis, and the Fremont Street Experience along the way. The first half of the run ends at the Mob Museum. Enjoy a break from running while checking out the very interesting Mob Museum exhibits. After brushing up on some interesting Las Vegas history, it will be time to hit the road for a 2.5 mile run back.
Both tours are sure to enrich your trip to Las Vegas. Please contact us today if either of these sound interesting. One more thing, do not forget about our run tours to Red Rock Canyon, Lake Mead, and
A big thank you goes out to Shari from B.C. Canada. Shari joined Las Vegas Running Tours on a run of the 5 Tunnels Trail out at Lake Mead. It was a gorgeous day for a run...wind, rain, and low clouds. The scenery was amazing...complete with rainbows, bighorn sheep, and fiery clouds. It was truly a pleasure getting to know you and run with you Shari. Deb and I look forward to our next adventure. Until then, keep on running.
I want to give a shout out to my new friends Francisco and Billy. Las Vegas Running Tours lead these boys on a tour of the 5 Tunnels/Hoover Dam/Lake Mead trail. The weather couldn't have been better and the scenery amazing. We ventured 16 miles and ran through 5 railroad tunnels, saw a desert big horn sheep, ran on and around the amazing Hoover Dam, ran into Arizona, and ran over the jaw dropping bridge spanning the Colorado river and Black Canyon. To sum it up in one word...amazing. Thank you Francisco and Billy for a great time and keep on running down there in Mexico City.
Come out and join Las Vegas Running Tours and make your own special memories today!
Thanks and see you on the trails.
Las Vegas Running Tours is happy to announce that we are up and RUNNING! We are excited to meet folks from all over the world and show them the real beauty of the Mojave Desert and of Las Vegas. If you live in Las Vegas and haven't realized yet, we live in a stunning place. Running in the desert can be harsh, but if you respect the surroundings and always prepare yourself, then there is no reason why anyone couldn't enjoy a run in the middle of a hot summer day or during a cold wintry day. So spread the word that LVRT is in business. Come join us on a running tour and experience the WILD side of Vegas.
