Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series is the ‘World’s Largest Running Series’ with reportedly more than 500,000 competitors across the USA each year.  I have heard a lot about this race, especially the Las Vegas Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon and Half Marathon.  One of the coolest things about this race in particular is that you get to run on the Las Vegas strip at night.  Also, there is live music and bands throughout the whole course, every mile!

I have a few bloggy-friends who have attended in years past (notably Dorothy with Mile Posts), and this year many of them did again.  There are also a few people I know that are hoping to run Las Vegas next year.

It got Mom and I talking, because somehow, my dear mother has NEVER been to Las Vegas, and both of us would love to run this race in particular, and it would be a fantastic excuse to get my Mom to Vegas!  My sister is on a quest to run a half marathon in every state, and she hasn’t done so yet in Nevada…

You see where this is going…

Mom, Kristen, and I will be running the Las Vegas Rock ‘n’ Roll 1/2 Marathon next year!

We were able to sign up with the pre-sale today.  This will be Mom’s and my first destination race, which we are both super excited for.  And it’ll be a great fun weekend, only a year to wait!

Have you done a Rock ‘n’ Roll race before? Which one?  Have you ever been to a destination race? Where?

  1. Nope, no RNR races for me (yet). Honestly, the music and fun stuff is mostly wasted on me. Even the music at RTP (or the Portland marathon) are just background noise to the agony and grind of throwing one foot in front of the other. My daughter has done a lot of these, and she insists they are a good time, but I would just be there for the miles, not the smiles.
