California to Las Vegas foot race is billed as the largest law
enforcement athletic event in the world. Over 4,000 runners were
registered. Each team has 20 runners that cover six mile legs of the 120
mile race until finished.
Each town along the way had spectators cheering on the
runners. If you have ever traveled from Baker, California to Pahrump
then to Las Vegas you can appreciate some of the steep grades these
runners had to climb. Each team had motorized escorts.
The first runner made it to Pahrump, NV around 11PM and
there was a steady flow down Route #160 until about 4AM.
