The Brady Heart Foundation 5k and 1 mile run will be held in the perfect cool mornings of February in the spectacular city of Las Vegas, NV. 5k and 1 mile participants will start in Sunset Park and will run a designated loop inside the park. Sunset Park is a beautiful spot that is quiet and peaceful in the bustling city or Las Vegas. In the last few years the city of Las Vegas added a fantastic trail system within Sunset Park and it is very excting that we have the privilege to make great use of the trails.
Runners will start and finish in the same spot so there is no need to worry about transportation from the starting line to the finish line. The course will be marked to limit the amount of runners that may get lost along the way. The trail system is located on the south end of the park and we will have our banners out to help participants find where we are located.
There will be a 75 minute time limit for the 5k. That gives plenty of time for walkers. No one will be removed from the corse. That means if it takes you longer that's ok. We will be holding awards for the first place male and female finisher 60 minuntes after start time. There will be no prize for any first place finishers of the 1 mile fun walk. Only the first male and female finisher for the 5k will be receiving a finisher prize.
Come enjoy the scenery, beautiful path, and most importantly do it for a great cause.

The 5k race will be timed but it will not be bib or chipped timed. The only racers that will get an official time will be the first male and first female runner to cross the finish line. We will do our best to write down and keep times of all runners crossing the finish line. We will not have the race professionally timed this saves us a big expense and that means there are more funds that can go to the women and their families that are in need. It also means we can hold more and better events. We apprieciate your understanding that not everyone will have an official time or place. If you would like to be timed you are welcome to use your own stop watch, gps device, gps watch or other electronic device. We will give runners 75 minutes to complete the race before we shut the clock down. That is plenty of time to walk. And walkers are welcome!
