After months of speculation in regards to new updates for the Las Vegas Rock 'n' Roll Marathon. has officially announced their revisions for the event in 2013.
The first major update is the new date of the event which has now been switched to November 17th. The race moves up from the typical December date it held in the past. Futhermore this year’s event will have three races: the marathon, half-marathon and the new “Half of The Half” marathon — a 6.5-mile race. This opens the event to many more casual runners — and likely many more local runners — who will be able to soak in all the atmosphere of the Strip and the Fremont Street finishing area, even if they lack the physical conditioning required to complete a 13.1-mile or 26.2-mile race.
For more details regarding the event visit the event details page on the Vegas marathon page found here.
Please note that this event is no longer part of the Las Vegas Track Club Championship Series this season. Therefore we are not prioritizing this race like in years back.
