The race requires packet pickup the day before and at the convention center at the opposite end of the strip, which is a bit inconvenient. Aside from that, 40,000 people on the strip was a fantastic experience. Did the Half, set personal best. Only other downside is that limited photos from the event are available due to the poor nighttime lighting.
Corral system could be improved to mitigate some of the crowding during the run. But it’s a huge event, so to some extent runing in a pack is unavoidable.
Also remember to stay hydrated. Cool desert nights can take their toll on the body.
