Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon; Las Vegas

3 Dec

Las Vegas will be holding the Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon this Sunday, December 4th. This marathon (and half-marathon) takes runners in and out of Las Vegas. Along the way, you would be able to see casinos, neighborhoods, restaurants and and much more. It is one of the oldest marathons in the USA as it was established in 1967.

The Las Vegas Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon is part of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series owned by the Competitor Group. There are 27 marathons that are part of this series. The marathon in Las Vegas will be experimenting with a new course that they have never done before.

The marathon may also be good for the economy as the impact may be near millions of dollars, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The expected registration is in the 40,000’s and with the price being charged on all these runners, no wonder Las Vegas wants to bring it back year after year.

Could this be a start to marathons becoming a economic competition in the USA? If revenue keeps reaching these marks, then it is very possible.
