- 13.1/Half Marathon
- Road Race
This was a one time only race but it was great! If you ever get a chance to do a race in Las Vegas I highly recommend it!
Overall the race was very well organized and worth every penny to travel to Las Vegas.
The medal is the best part! It's a nice size, a little bigger than my palm, and even though it represents a brand, Ford Mustang, it doesn't just scream ADVERTISING! like some medals I've seen.
The Expo was non-existent and was really more of a packet pick up set up.
The shirt is great! It's a nice tech shirt and it came in men's and women's sizes so the fit is better than races that use unisex shirts.
The race was hot but they had plenty of aid stations to make up for the heat. We had water/Gatorade at almost every two miles. The race was closely watching the weather and did a great job of communicating when the race went from a normal Green flag to a Yellow caution flag.
The Elevation difficulty wasn't bad at all. It was mostly flat with a few slow inclines and only one hill which wasn't a big one. But there was on spot where we were running on gravel for a short while.
Parking was fine. The race was held at the LV Motor Speedway which is use to facilitating parking for a few thousand people at a time. We rode the shuttle and made it even easier. We had a 10 minute walk from the parking lot to the starting line.
The race management did a great job of putting on a well organized and safe race. The course map is a little confusion just to look at but everything was clearly marked on the course. Also the bib had a QR code on the top and we were able to view our race results instantly by using our smart phone to read the code!
The course scenery was hit and miss. It was great when we had a nice view of the mountains and it was fun to run on the Las Vegas Motor speedway, but it was a little boring at time being around nothing but the desert.
Overall I am really glad I did this race. The medal alone was worth it!
