Run to Live & Live to Run


This site is devoted to the men and women who are crime fighters for the Riverside County District Attorney's Office in California and spend their off-time running competitively, with the help of their support crews. One of the biggest running events the team will participate in is the "Challenge Cup Relay Race," better known as the "Baker-to-Vegas Race" or B2V Race. Runners endure the desert climate in a relay race of 20-legs. Participants jokingly referred to race as the world's longest police foot pursuit! Over 280 law enforcement teams will participate each annually; with many of the teams traveling from around the world.

Historically, the Annual Challenge Cup/Baker to Vegas Relay is scheduled to take place over a weekend from late March to early April. The course begins 25 miles north of Baker CA. on Highway 127 to Shoshone CA; then northeast on Highway 178, across the state line into Nevada on Highway 372 to Pahrump NV., then southeast on Highway 160 to the finish inside the Hilton Hotel Convention Room in Las Vegas. Teams are scheduled to run in eleven flights, depending upon their ability, with flights starting hourly from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

On Sunday, eight hours after the last team finishes, an Awards Ceremony is held in the Hilton Hotel Convention room for over 6000 runners and support personnel; several thousand family members and friends; and almost a thousand race volunteers. The festivities began with a most impressive Opening Program providing entertainment for all. Over 145 VIP law enforcement dignitaries, chiefs of police, agentsóinócharge and sheriffs are introduced to the crowd. The spectacle is a worthwhile experience that brings members of the Riverside County District Attorney's Office for some healthy Esprit de' Corps!
