LAS VEGAS -- The Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon & ½ Marathon celebrated 10 years on the Vegas Strip on Nov. 11, 2018. welcoming 40,000 registered participants traveling from all 50 states and 86 countries (and about 60% of the participants are women). The event also features a brand-new start line festival for runners and spectators on Harmon Ave. one block east of Planet Hollywood. Billboard, VMA, and Grammy nominated indie-electro group, Capital Cities headlines the 2018 Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert Series.
As the only private event to shut down the famed Las Vegas Strip, it's a unique opportunity for marathoners of all backgrounds. With a start just as the sun is setting, the race comes to life under the lights of Las Vegas. Even when the course moves off of the Strip, music and lights kept the runners company all the way back to the finish line.
This year's winners for the men's and women's full marathon were Tommy Puzey of Flagstaff, Arizona and - in her first ever marathon - Hannah McInturff of Salt Lake City, Utah.
