Jingle all the way…
Come out and jingle with us for the inaugural Jingle Bell Run. Santa will be watching and waiting for you to finish the race. Make a dash to Henderson for a jolly good time (or a chance to burn off some of those holiday treats) with a festive 5K (3.1-mile) run or family fun walk along Pittman Wash Trail.
Pre-registered participants will jingle all the way with jingle bell wristlets that will be provided in your packet. This is fun for the whole family. Runners and walkers of all ages are encouraged to dress up in their best holiday-themed attire. Maybe you have an ugly holiday sweater you want to get more use out of, or the white elephant re-gifted reindeer antlers, elf ears or Santa hat that you ended up with from the office party. In any case, the more decked-out you are the merrier times will be for all. There is a content for the Ugliest Sweater and Cutest Elf contest. Winners will receive a one month fitness pass.
A joyful time will be had by all, as we deck the halls with holiday music and cheer at Pecos Legacy Park.

Sam Boyd Stadium at UNLV: 7000 East Russell Road, Las Vegas, NV 89122
Who will it be? It’s the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl at the UNLV Sam Boyd Stadium: Utah vs. Colorado State: The (8-4 ranked) Utah Utes face off against the (10-2 ranked) Colorado State Rams in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl! Will the Utes show as the true kings of Los Angeles? Thrilling last-minute wins at UCLA and home to USC suggest they most certainly are. The Rams’ offense ranked 13th nationally while averaging 498 yards per game, and that helped fuel a nine-game winning streak- not bad! A comeback victory at Boston College helped unleash that tear. And a win against in-state rival Colorado to kick off the season is always a big deal in Fort Collins. So who will you be cheering on? Colorado or Utah?
So what is the Las Vegas Bowl? It will be the 23rd edition of the game, which is now the 16th-oldest bowl in the FBS lineup. Owned and operated by ESPN Events, the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl has been held each December since 1992, and boasted sold-out attendance in seven of the last nine years at Sam Boyd Stadium. Annually hosting the top choice from the Mountain West vs. a Pacific-12 Conference opponent, last year’s game attracted the second-biggest crowd to see a team sporting event in state history as 42,178 fans watched No. 25 USC defeat No. 20 Fresno State 45-20 on ABC TV. The 2014 Las Vegas Bowl features the champion or first selection from the Mountain West (MW) against the sixth selection from the Pacific-12 Conference (Pac-12).
