A DESTINATION RACE WEEKEND IN LAS VEGAS

Embrace your inner rock star and join Moms on the Run and Olympian Carrie Tollefson for a destination-race weekend of fitness, fun and friendship at Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas.

This epic event combines all of the fun we’ve had in our last three destination run events and goes one step bigger: running the largest night-time race in the world! Bring your light-up socks, tutus and fun costumes, and get excited to run the #StripAtNight. Choose from multiple distances — 5K, 10K or half marathon — and run past iconic hotels from New York New York to Paris and the Bellagio fountain, or on Fremont Street, all the while being treated to live music up and down the course. This is more than just a race; it is a party!

Come alone or with your best running friends and focus on whatever you need — pushing yourself during the race, enjoying social time with like-minded women, or relaxing at the pool or spa. The first 50 registrants to save their spot with us by 7/19 will receive our reflective nighttime event tee.

THE RACE: RUN THE NIGHT!

Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas offers multiple race distances — a half, 10K and 5K – with great live music on the course. The race is known as the ultimate running party, where you’ll run The Strip or Fremont Street at night after a pre-race party in the entertainment capital of the world. You will receive a discounted pricing code after you register with us: $69 for the 5K, $109 for the 10K and $119 for the Half (plus processing fees). Or, take the Remix Challenge and race both Saturday night and Sunday night! Saturday night is the 5K on Fremont Street, for a completely different race experience from the Sunday races on the Strip.

FRIDAY ADVENTURE – INCLUDED!

This 5.3 mile out-and-back trail involves rope-assisted scrambles and can be challenging, but we will take our time and you’ll be rewarded at the end with a soak in beautiful hot springs and a dip in the Colorado River. We’ll end our excursion with a visit to the world-famous Hoover Dam and a walk across the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial bridge to Arizona! This activity is optional, of course, but you won’t want to miss it!

HOW SOON DO I NEED TO REGISTER?

Early registration is critical for us to be able secure the maximum amount of space at the hotel and to make appropriate accommodations for our group activities based on our participant numbers. Please submit your registration as soon as possible to ensure you receive the room type of your choice. Our hotel block may sell out quickly and rooms will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis; rooms selling out will increase registration rates and we reserve the right to place participants at nearby hotels if needed.  All members of your party must be registered in order for us to officially secure your room.

WHAT LEVEL RUNNER DO I NEED TO BE?

ALL fitness levels are welcome to join us — from newbies to experienced racers — and there are a variety of destination race options to participate in. The shortest distance is a 5K, so it would be good if you are able to do 3 miles in run/walk intervals, regardless of pace. Or, just come for a girls’ getaway and to cheer on your teammates! You don’t have to race.


WHEN IS MY PAYMENT DUE?

Event payment in full can be made at the time of registration, or through October 15, you can take advantage of our payment plan, which will divide your balance into 3 monthly payments with the first payment starting at the time of registration.

WHAT IF I’M LOCAL TO THE AREA & PREFER TO SLEEP AT HOME?
We’re able to sell you a weekend package without hotel at a slightly reduced rate. Package includes ALL group meals and activities and the administration of the event. No custom packages are available.

WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE A ROOMMATE?

New running friends await! We can match up roommates 2-to-a-room. If we aren’t able to find a match for your 2-to-a-room selection, we can offer a refunded registration minus our current processing fee. If you are registering for 3 or 4-to-a-room option, you must find your own roommates.

WHAT IF I HAVE DIETARY NEEDS?

We are able to accommodate basic dietary needs that you note on your registration form. We reserve the right to charge a fee for these accommodations if we incur administrative costs, including fees passed on to us from our meal service venues, which is becoming more common practice. If you have needs beyond gluten free/dairy free/vegetarian, please contact us to inquire. 

WHAT WILL IT COST?

Our event package will include lodging, resort fees, and some meals and group activities. It will not include all meals, transportation or the race. The posted price is the price you can expect based on your preferred number of nights and roommates. Please note the race (at a discount) will need to be purchased separately.
We offer payment plans, allowing you to divide your registration into 3 monthly payments for a nominal administrative fee of $10 per payment. *Note that room prices for 4-to-a-room are not half of the 2-to-a-room rates; there are additional resort charges when 3-4 share a room instead of 2. All rooms housing 2, 3 or 4 will have two queen beds. Single rooms may have 2 queen beds or 1 king, while inventory lasts. Register early!
