Rock n Roll Las Vegas features a three-day Health & Fitness Expo prior to the race, which all participants must visit to pick up their race packets. Free and open to the public, this expo features the latest in running technologies, fitness apparel, health & nutrition information and interactive displays. Pick up some last-minute essentials before race day and be sure to visit the Brooks Official Merchandise Store. All runners must visit the expo to pick up their race number, gear bag and t-shirt.

Designate a Post Race meeting spot to meet your runner when they have completed their run! It will be very crowded in the Finish Line area, so we would suggest meeting your runner near the Bellagio Fountain, after they finish their walk through the Secure Zone.
