    Hi

    We are heading into town from the UK in a couple of weeks for what will be my first visit to Vegas. We are staying for a week and our group will be between 6 & 10 as people join and leave the group.

    We have an interesting age mix ranging from a couple of young un's of 22 through to the oldest being 51. We are staying in the MGM Grand and planning to fit as much as possible in during our week.

    Much to the amusement of my travelling companions I have decided to enter the rock n roll 1/2 marathon on what will be our last night in town, so as well as any advice on what to see and do during our trip advice on how to cope\prepare for a half marathon after six nights of hard drinking and intense partying.

    Cheers

    Nelly

    What a coincidence. I'm leaving for LV in 15 days and staying at MGM grand as well. I'll be going to the Judas Priest concert at Pearl (at The Palms) on Friday, November 14th.

    Have a great trip and win big!

    Hi Nelly!

    I just joined this message board and see that you're running the half marathon - me too! Staying at MGM from the 14th-17th :)

    I ran this race last year and had a blast. It was really well organized, plenty of water along the course, lots of bands … My tequila cut-off point was midnight the night before and I felt fine! Hydration is the key! :beer:

    Good luck!

    Kai

    Thanks all for the warm welcome and good luck messages.

    would be good to bump into a few people in the hotel and maybe share a beer or two.

    Kai good luck for the half and thanks for tip, maybe see you on the course.

    getting excited now as the hours tick by!!

    Thanks! I have also signed up for the 5k on Saturday night - I'm beginning to wonder what I was thinking….

    If you guys want to meet up for a drink in the lobby bar or elsewhere at MGM, just let me know!

    There are alot of great things to do if your looking for shows of course the circ shows are great. Also have to check out any type of experiences like traveling to the Grand Canyon and such things like that honestly there are just way to many things to enjoy to pack it all in on one trip from the Nightclub to just random day activities too. If you think you have questions on any ideas of things you wanted to do alway feel free to reply so can get the best prices if you are wanting to do these activities or enjoying the nightlife. Hate to see people over pay for no reason.

    Hope your trip becomes memorable
