The Las Vegas Turkey Trot is one of the biggest Thanksgiving Runs in southern Nevada. Join hundreds of families and runs along the Historic Railroad Trail through Lake Mead Recreation Area. Runners pass through the Six Tunnels to Hoover Dam—a landmark that’s historic and beautiful. Choose your distance, from half marathon, 12K, 5K, or 1-mile— and hit the trails on Thanksgiving morning. Every distance showcases views of Lake Mead, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world.
