Welcome to the 7th Annual Big Dam Run

Labor of love

Welcome to the 7th Pre-Imagine Run/Walk in lovely Las Vegas Nevada. In 2012, after an urging from Susan to do something "Fun" before Magento Imagine, we decided on entering a Magento group into the Labor of Love 10k and Half Marathon. This was the bigging of Mage:Run('vegas') and Imagine Running. That year Bob Schwartz got the design team to put together a T-shirt. We put together a bus and had 25 odd people out in the middle of the desert.

We joined a race until 2016 when there was no race to join. We decided to do our own race and not really knowing what we were doing we decided that the Hoover Dam would be a great place. 

When the popularity grew to more than 60 people we started calling around for bigger buses. Then someone mentioned. "Did you get a permit?"

A Permit... for what? The Hoover Dam was put on hold for 2016 and in 2017 we got our permit! 

Last year we had 135 people and rented the top level of the parking garage at the Hoover Dam. 

We are excited about this year race and hope to see you there! 

Some things we are looking for this year.

Volunteers: This is a community event. We are looking for all sorts of volunteers. 

  • Guest Bloggers. I am setting an incredibly low bar with this post. Anything anyone writes will be welcome. 
  • Drone Pilot. (Just like it says)
  • Water Stop at 5k turn around
