The 2021 race season was one of monstrous successes for the Nevada running community. The RUN Nevada Race Series saw a 50% increase in turn out from 2020’s inaugural season to the 2021 season, with 565 total registrations between the four series races. Country star Bryan White ran the RUN Country 5k, and the Freedom Run saw the addition of a 10k and half marathon option for 2021. In addition to the four series races, the second annual Bricktown Donut Dash, the first ever Bench ‘N’ Bolt, and the first ever Ugly Christmas Sweater Run all saw huge successes.
