Please visit the "Road Closures" page for the most current information.

Before you enter your assigned corral, drop-off your pre-race/post-race clothing and belongings at the Gear Check. While you run, your gear will be held at Gear Check.

Each participant will receive a large, durable gear bag at the Health & Fitness Expo when you pick up your packet that will serve as your gear bag on race day. Gear Check trucks will be arranged alphabetically and by truck number near the Start Line. Attach your gear tag to your gear bag before you leave it with the Gear Check crew. After the race, reclaim your checked bag at the designated Gear Check area.

Please note: DO NOT leave valuables, cash or jewelry in your gear bag. The event is not responsible for any lost items. Gear bags must be claimed before close of the Finish Line Festival on race day.

In an effort to provide every one of our participants with as comfortable a run as possible, the Wave Start will be incorporated in most Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series events.

Participants are assigned to an appropriate corral based on the projected finishing time submitted on their entry form. Typically, there are multiple waves assigned to several of the finishing times. All spectators should be aware of this when organizing their viewing schedule for the day.

  • When the gun fires, the first corral will be released. The rest of the participants will be held at the start line.
  • At pre-determined intervals the next corral will be released.
  • By using this staggered starting method, the pack will be spread out and allow every runner to settle into their racing rhythm from the first step right to the finish line.

To ensure that roads reopen to vehicular traffic at the scheduled times, the course time limits will be STRICTLY ENFORCED. Participants must maintain a pace faster than the course time limits in order to complete the race on closed city streets. A cut-off location will be enforced on the course; runners or walkers who do not reach the cut-off location by this time will be stopped and shuttled to the finish line area. Please note – this is timing tag time, not gun time. Course time limits begin when the last participant and Tail Vehicle cross the start line.

  • Marathon: 5 hours
  • Half Marathon: 4 hours
  • 10K: 1 hour 35 minutes
  • 5K: 1 hour

If a participant’s pace falls below the course time limit, they have a few options:

  • Increase their pace to stay within the event minimum pace;
  • Board a “sag wagon” shuttle to move forward on the course, where they may continue to participate in the event, maintaining the minimum pace required; or
  • If the participant cannot continue, they may board a sag wagon to be dropped off at the next shuttle location, at a nearby medical station. The participant will be seen by a Medical Team captain to be cleared for the medical shuttle to transport the participant to the finish line.

To ensure that roads reopen to vehicular traffic at the scheduled times, the 2017 course time limits were the following. Stay tuned as we confirm this information for 2018.

  • Marathon: 5 hours
  • Half marathon: 4 hours
  • 10K: 1 hour 35 minutes
  • 5K: 1 hour

IMPORTANT NOTES:
This is timing tag time, not gun time. Course time limits begin when the last participant for each distance crosses the start line.
All marathoners will be placed in the first wave. Therefore, the 5 hour time limit begins when the last scheduled blue start participant crosses the start line, approx. 4:45pm
It is imperative for ALL participants to start in their assigned corrals
If a marathoner does not start in the assigned wave, they will not have the full 5 hours to complete the event.
We understand the 5 hour time limit on the marathon is incredibly strict. Due to the impact the road closures have on Las Vegas, we must adhere to these timelines to minimize impact on businesses, hotels, and guest of the city.

We implement ‘diversions’ on course if you fall off the 5 hour marathon pace. All diversions for 2018 will be announced in the coming months.

If you are concerned about hitting the 5 hour time limit, we strongly recommend you run the half marathon. We want to ensure you have as amazing of an experience as possible, and don’t want to divert you if at all possible.

Information Booths will be positioned at the start and finish to assist you with any race day questions and help you find your way. The Information Booths will also serve as the race day Lost & Found. Any valuables found at the start or finish should be turned in to the Information Booth. Items from the start will be transported to the finish.

To claim a lost item after the event, please contact us at rnrlv@competitorgroup.com.

In 2018 we are bringing you more and better course support. Stay tuned for what this means for your new Las Vegas experience!

  • Every station will provide water

  • Gatorade (lemon lime) will be at every other station, starting with the second station

  • Energy gels will be provided at one station for half marathoners and two stations for marathoners.

  • Bananas will be provided for marathoners

Race timing is by Sportstats using chip on the bib technology which will automatically record participants’ times at the start, at certain splits along the courses and at the finish. Sportstats will be using disposable tags, glued onto your race bib, which allows you to walk away from the finish without the need to have your tag collected.

Please Note: All participants in the race must wear their race bib with the tag intact in order to have their times recorded. No bib = no time! Please make sure the race bib is pinned at torso height at the front and is visible throughout the race.

Help support your community, as well as the thousands of runners and walkers by volunteering! With almost 2,400 positions available there is a spot for everyone; including teams, corporate groups, family and friends.

After the Race

Once you cross the finish line, you’ll enter the Secure Zone, a fenced off area designated for participants only. In the Secure Zone, have your photo taken, refuel with water and refreshments and receive your finisher’s medal. Once you leave the Secure Zone, you cannot re-enter. Just outside of the Secure Zone, you can retrieve your gear bag and join family and friends for the Finish Line Festival.

After the race, reunite with family and friends in the Family Reunion area and relish in your post race accomplishment with refreshments and live music at the finish line stage. With a large number of participants and thousands of excited spectators, it can be difficult to locate friends and family without a plan. It is highly recommended that you designate a meet-up location for friends and family BEFORE the race in the Family Reunion area. The Family Reunion area will post tall, clearly-marked signs by Letter (A – Z), so be sure to coordinate and plan to meet at a predetermined letter.

Age group awards will be presented 3-deep in all divisions, for both the marathon (where applicable) and half marathon, for male and female categories. Top 3 overall male and females are excluded from the age-group awards and can only receive one prize. Awards can be picked up at the Awards Tent at the post race festival. In accordance with USATF Rules, overall and cash awards will be determined by gun time while age group awards will be determined by your chip time.

  • 12 – 14 (1/2 Marathon only)
  • 15 – 17 (1/2 Marathon only)
  • 18 – 24
  • 25 – 29
  • 30 – 34

All finishers will be able to download their finisher’s certificate on the Results page of the race website within 5-7 days after the event.

All finishers will be able to view and purchase their photos from the event on the Results page of the race website within 5-7 business days after the event.

Please submit a results correction request and our timing company will look into your claim. Corrections will be updated on a weekly basis.

On race day, if the distance shown on your Forerunner is slightly more than the official race distance, it just means you weren’t cutting corners—quite literally. According to the IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federation) course measurement guidelines (pg. 20), a road race course is defined by the shortest possible route a runner could take without being disqualified.

For most races, a certified measurer rides the course on a bike, staying near the curb and taking every available tangent. This ensures that all runners will run at least the declared race distance. After the race, if Forerunner shows that you ran a little farther, this just accounts for extra steps you took to run around others participants, hit a water stop or stay to the middle or outside lane.

There will be pre-race entertainment programmed for 10K participants. There will also be on course entertainment, as the 10K course is the second half of the half marathon course.

Participants of all race distances (marathon, half marathon, 10K and 5K), along with friends and family members, will be permitted to enter, free of charge. Stay tuned to the Entertainment page for all 2018 details

Lost items that were found and turned in will be returned to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series office after the event. Please allow 1-2 weeks for transit time and inventory.

If you would like to follow up on a lost item, please contact us at rnrlv@competitorgroup.com. Please Note: The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
