Been to Las Vegas plenty of times, but this is my first trip during the R&R race (on Sunday 11/15). I was wondering if anyone has been during one of these races and has any logistic tips to share, especially given the mighty Strip is closed to all traffic from 2:30 - 11:00. Here are somethings we are thinking about: 1) We have folks at Ballys and Caesars -- chosen because they are near the finish line. I'm think that with the expo being at the convention center on Saturday, and the start of the race being down by the Luxor on Sunday, that a two day monorail pass might actually be worthwhile. I rarely take the monorail, but this time it might be worth it? 2) We got the latest reservation we could at Mon ami Gabi for after race nourishment. It should work since our crew is doing the half-marathon, not the full, so I think we are good to go there. 3) I'm assuming that traffic is just a cluster on race day, and you just need to be happy with the side of the strip you are currently on Obviously the pedestrian bridges will all be open, but if you are at Harrahs you aren't just cutting over to the Mirage without a hike. 4) Does the presence of 25,000 runners just make the Strip more like a Saturday night than a Sunday night? Or is it more additional than that? Almost everyone runs the half and not the full at this race because the extra 13 miles of the full are basically just up and back on MLK Drive and thus not very scenic at all. So, most people would be finishing between 6:30-8:30 depending on your corral and speed and basically emptying at Flamingo Ave. Any other tips would be appreciated! I've read a lot of the past runners reports, but they talk mostly about the race, not just being in and around Vegas during the event.
