Invite your girlfriends, sisters, daughters and mothers to our, women only, walkabout, specifically designed for walkers (runner friendly).
The event takes place in the serenity of Tule Springs. Experience calm and peaceful surroundings and be the first to travel along the newest trails at Floyd Lamb Park. The scenic paths offer views of the Sheep Mountains and pass along historic shelters full of peacocks, geese and abundant wild life.
The nature paths take you along the lakes and shade trees of one of the oldest parks in Nevada. This unique adventure is to be shared with your “tribe” of women friends, or choose to journey alone in the serenity of Mother natures perfect pathways.
Each mile that you complete you are awarded a special charm!
5 miles = 5 charms, 10 miles = 10 charms!
The charms are symbolic of the journey you are taking, traveling through nature, entering into your state of well being…..it’s enlightening, fun and a journey that is designed by women, and especially for women!
This event is in support of the Women’s Club of Summerlin. We will be having a raffle at packet pickup to raise funds for this wonderful organization. Check out more information under our “Charity” tab!

“I wanted to say thank you to you both! I loved doing the 10 miles last weekend. That was by far the farthest I had run/walk as I usually do 5k’s. I feel so accomplished! I am thinking of doing a half marathon now which seemed so distant in my ability prior to the 10 miles! The charms were such a neat way to mark our journey!” …..Kelley
