Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino

A staple on the Las Vegas Strip skyline, Paris provides an epic photo backdrop with replicas of the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and La Fontaine des Mers. The front of the hotel also resembles the Paris Opera House and Lourve.

The Fountains of Bellagio

The biggest water station on course when you run the Strip at Night…just don’t drink out of it! A photo in front of these large dancing water fountains synchronized to music will have you feeling like the stars who have graced Las Vegas, including the cast of Ocean’s 11 in the closing scene of the movie.

Welcome to Las Vegas Sign

You can’t miss it as you approach the Strip, so you have to get out and take a picture letting your crew know you have arrived!

Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay

Atop the 43-story luxury Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino sits the House of Blues Foundation Room. It includes fine dining and live music with a picture-perfect view down to the Strip below.

Start Line

The energy is at an all time high as you and 25,000+ of your other running buddies get ready to take over the Las Vegas Strip at Night! You have to snap some pics to capture that feeling, then hit the road for your journey!


The Cosmopolitan

Located just south of the Bellagio fountains sits the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino, also commonly referred to as The Cosmo. The 9-foot tall stiletto on the casino floor level is a popular photo opp!


The tallest freestanding observation tower in the U.S. and the second-tallest on the West coast, the Stratosphere is a towering 1,149-feet high (350.2m) and one of the biggest Strip attractions. Get to the bottom and look up, or get to the top and look down!

MGM Grand Lion

Did you know the MGM Grand lion has a name? Leo! Make sure to ask Leo for permission to take a picture. He may be big, but he’s always down to paw-ty!


Named for the sword of King Arthur in Medieval myths, Excalibur Hotel and Casino is ever present in the Las Vegas skyline with its towering and brightly colored castle peaks. 

Treasure Island Pirate Ship

Also referred to as TI by locals, the Treasure Island Hotel skull-and-crossbones signals you are almost at the finish line!
