Las Vegas Turkey Trot

Following the Historic Railroad Trail in Lake Mead National Recreation Area, this long half marathon/12k race follows a tough but gorgeous gravel route through six tunnels out to the Hoover Dam. There are also equally pretty 5k and 1 mile routes for a less strenuous morning. With any choice, expect a few metabolism revving hill climbs. 

One of the more scenic and potentially challenging Thanksgiving Day races.
