Where can I learn about transportation to and from the race?

All Runners should report to the Tropicana early on the day of the event. Half Marathon runners will be bussed from the Tropicana to Laughlin High School and will be assigned bus departure times based on registration date. The earlier you register, the LATER your bus will depart, so get yourself signed up! See the Transportation page for details.

What is allowed, or not permitted on the course?

Due to RRCA Regulations and for your safety, running with headphones is not allowed. All runners must maintain the ability to hear instructions from security and emergency personnel at all times. For the safety of all runners, bicyclists are not allowed on this course during the race. Assistance from a ride-along support team member is cause for disqualification from prize eligibility.

This run is 100% road, with some rough, uneven pavement. Wheelchairs, hand-cycles and strollers are cautiously allowed on this course. There are some steady uphill climbs that we strongly suggest you train for. The 5K and 10K are completely on cement or blacktop trail, and although there are some uphill climbs, strollers, wheelchairs and hand-cycles can compete in this race as well.

Dogs on leash are allowed on the 5K course, but we ask that you exercise extreme caution when around other runners. Dog owners assume 100% liability and will be held legally accountable for their dog’s behavior.

What happens if I become injured on the course?

Medical aid is provided at (2) designated aid stations along the course and will be equipped to provide basic first aid. EMT service is positioned at the start line and Las Vegas Metro Police will be stationed throughout the course. The main medical tent is located at the finish line and is available to assist runners with various ailments.

What happens if I cannot finish the race or keep the minimum required pace?

Transportation to the finish area for stranded or slow walkers without medical problems is provided via the SWEEPER vehicle. In the event you cannot finish the race, please make your way to the nearest water or medical station and ask for SWEEPER assistance. The SWEEPER vehicle will be following the final runner/walker and will pick up any runners as they pass each water station. Unfortunately, those that return to the finish line via the SWEEPER vehicle will be classified “DNF” (Did Not Finish) and do not qualify to receive a finisher’s medal.

What awards are available to the runners and teams?
