Reportedly 1,500 runners showed up at the inaugural Sprinkler Sprint 5K at 7 AM Saturday morning in downtown Las Vegas. A fairly successful turn out given that it was a locally organized event. As you can see, the runners and volunteers had a great time! (Photo credit: khanhx.com)

The Sprinkler Sprint was sponsored by big names such as Zappos, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, El Cortez Hotel & Casino, as well as many local small businesses.
