Disclaimer: I received an entry to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. I was super impressed with the entire experience for this virtual race. I loved the fact that there was a chapter for most major cities and was pleasantly surprised there was a Spokane chapter. Knowing that a portion of the proceeds from this race went to help the LGBTQ+ organizations in my community was a huge plus! The swag was awesome- rainbow lense sunglasses, rainbow flag, comfy pullover, fabulous medal, super useful wristbands with zipper, and a fanny pack...what else can you ask for?!?! I look forward to running this race, hopefully in person, with my community in solidarity next year as well.

The Missoula Marathon has been my favorite race since the first year I ran it in 2015, I've ran it every year since. The local community is amazing and comes out to cheer on the runners. The swag, t-shirt and medals, are very high quality and have great designs. I wear my finisher shirts from this race more often than any others. The scenery is gorgeous, you cannot beat the views!

The Rock n Roll Las Vegas half marathon is so much fun from the expo to the finish line. The expo is the biggest and best I've experienced, so many great vendors and samples. The vibe at the expo gets you pumped up for the races ahead.
The half marathon begins on the Vegas strip before sunset and as you are making your turn back towards the strip, night begins to fall and the lights take your breath away. There is no feeling that can compare to running down the Strip at night with all of the gorgeous neon lights and masses of tourists cheering you on. Running through the Arts District and Fremont you still have great crowd support. The finish line is right in front of the Mirage volcano which is consistently erupting as runners cross the finish line. The roads are a bit rough, that is the only negative I have for the race. All in all, it is a must do for any runner.
