For the first time, the Rock ’n’ Roll Running Festival will include a 5K on Saturday, Nov. 15, starting and finishing at the SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. The course will include one lane of the Las Vegas Strip. Limited pre-sale registration for the Rock ‘n’ Roll 5k event opened on Wednesday, Aug. 6, at StripAtNight.com.
There is also a Zappos.com 1/2 of the Half on Sunday, Nov. 16 that is sold out.
“There is no better destination than Las Vegas for a true weekend of events and entertainment. We are thrilled to partner with SLS Las Vegas and Opportunity Village to host the first ever Rock ‘n’ Roll 5k Saturday night on the Las Vegas Strip,” said Josh Furlow, EVP of Global Events for CGI. “This event will cap a Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Festival experience unlike any other, taking place at night in one of the premier entertainment capitals of the world.”
The 2014 Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Festival will take place November 14-16. During the marathon and half-marathon there will be live bands at every mile, a Run-Thru Wedding, and pre- and post-event parties throughout the weekend at Vegas’ top nightlife venues. And it wouldn't be a race without the Running Elvi. Weekend activities will begin with a free two-day Health & Fitness Expo.
The event’s official charity is the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA). Over the past six years that the marathon has taken place in Las Vegas, the event has raised more than $20 million to help find a cure for the 1.4 million Americans living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
