Fitness enthusiasts rejoice! Two of the valley’s most popular fitness events are returning April 23 to the master planned community of Summerlin® after a two-year hiatus: Tour de Summerlin and the Summerlin Half Marathon.
According to Danielle Bisterfeldt, SVP, Marketing and Consumer Experience, Summerlin, both events were originally developed to showcase the community’s natural and manmade beauty while giving runners and cyclists first-rate, scenic routes that include Summerlin’s attractive streetscapes as well as stunning views of Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area to the west.
“We are thrilled to bring back Tour de Summerlin and the Summerlin Half Marathon this year,” said Bisterfeldt. “Both events have long been favorites with the running and cycling crowds who have participated in these signature springtime events. Summerlin is known for its active, outdoor hallmark lifestyle, and nothing expresses this better than these beloved and popular wellness events.”
The Lawn at Downtown Summerlin is the starting point for all events on April 23. Tour de Summerlin, now celebrating its 20th year, offers three ride distances for cyclists of all abilities: an 80-mile ride kicks off at 7 am; the 40-mile ride starts at 8:15 a.m.; and the 20-mile ride begins at 9:15 a.m. Registration fee is $100 per person. The event benefits Breakaway Cycling, a nonprofit to promote cycling and bike safety to children throughout Southern Nevada.Tour Registration
