Dads Rock Too! 5K/1-Mile
Benefiting ‘Keep Memory Alive’
Saturday, June 14, 2014….7:00 am
The inaugural Father’s Day weekend event will take place this year at Floyd Lamb State Park, formerly known as Tule Springs…an oasis in the desert of northwest Las Vegas! Its history includes an early winter stopping point for Native Americans, and later a working ranch.
Experience calm and peaceful surroundings as you travel the basin trail around the park. Scenic paths offer views of the Sheep Mountains, beautiful desert landscape and an abundance of peacocks, ducks and geese! The nature paths take you along the lakes and shade trees of one of the oldest parks in Nevada.
For more information on the park, please click http://www.lasvegasnevada.gov/files/Floyd_Lamb_Park_Brochure.pdf
There are many picnicking areas around the course for your friends and family to come out to support you and/or to have a Father’s Day picnic after the race!
Every participant will receive a t-shirt and a finisher’s medal!
There will be awards, music, food, prizes and lots of fun!
Don ‘t forget to wear your favorite tie!

The course start and finish line is on the path adjacent to Group Area 3. The course starts out on a flat tree-lined nature trail that varies between asphalt and dirt and runs along the lake and the historic portion of Tule Springs where you will enjoy the beautiful lakes, lush vegetation, ducks and peacocks! Then it takes you out onto the crushed limestone basin trail around the park surrounded by beautiful desert landscape, shaded picnic areas and views of the Sheep and Spring Mountains.
This course is very different from your basic road or park trail 10K/5K races. It’s fun, fast and provides a variety of terrain and scenery. There is nothing difficult and no trail shoes needed! The 1-mile fun walk participants will stay on the path around the lake inside the park. The start and finish line are the same for all 3 distances! It is easy walking for the beginner as well as a fast course for the advanced runner that wants to PR!
The geese, ducks and peacocks roam wild and are harmless. Please do not bother them and they will not bother you!
