I ran the half marathon this past year. Wasn’t sure about running in Vegas with all the distractions. But I was able to stay somewhat focussed. The registration process and expo were very good. The course is the main reason most people run this event and it was worth it! You run right on the strip. The only downside was the weather. It was COLD! Not sure that will ever change with the event being in December. But worth a trip…you can even finish with a beer in hand if you’d like.
