New Date For Las Vegas Marathon

Details Coming Soon

LAS VEGAS (AP) — City officials and Las Vegas Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon organizers are calling a date shift to Nov. 17 a chance to raise the profile of the race and remove a weekend conflict with another big event in town.

The race was held last year on the first Sunday in December.

But that conflicts with the 10-day National Finals Rodeo at the Thomas & Mack arena.

The nighttime marathon and half-marathon drew more than 30,000 entrants in 2012 from the U.S. and 40 countries.

Runners start and finish on the neon-lit Las Vegas Strip.
