WSHH Presents "Questions" (Season 2 Episode 4: Las Vegas)



Frequently Asked Questions: Las Vegas

When do I need to arrive?
You should plan to get to Las Vegas no later than late morning Saturday (if not sooner) so you have time to stop at the event Expo and pick up your registration packet (it includes your bib/race number, timing chip, etc.). The Expo is Friday, Dec. 4, from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 5, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Mandalay Bay Convention Center – Bayside Hall C. You must attend on one of those days to sign in—there is no race-day pickup. You should also plan to arrive in town with enough time to get settled in and adjust to the time difference, if necessary.

Can I have someone else pick up my race packet?
No, you must pick it up yourself. A race confirmation sheet will be emailed to you approximately 1 month prior to the race. Bring this sheet to the Expo. If you do not receive or lose your confirmation sheet, you can visit www.rnrvegas.com and print out a blank one, which will be available for download approximately 1 week before the race.

 

Where should I stay?
Team Prevention will have a host hotel that is only a few blocks from the start/finish lines and close to the expo, as well. Please check prevention.com/team regularly for updates. If you’re already registered with Team Prevention, you’ll receive an e-mail notice once the host hotel has been confirmed. For other hotels in the area, visit this Web page.

 

Can I plan to travel home on Sunday after the marathon?
It depends on how far away home is and your method of travel. You might not be comfortable sitting in a car or on an airplane if it’s a long trip. Instead, you’ll probably feel better if you stay put on Sunday night so you can soothe your stiff muscles and tired feet in a cool-to-warm bath within a few hours of crossing the finish line, and can get a good night’s sleep soon thereafter.

 

I’m not familiar with Las Vegas—how will I get around to everything all weekend?
Stay at the Team Prevention host hotel and you’ll have little navigating to do. The host hotel is where we hold our pasta dinner, welcome reception, and pre-race breakfast (if you’ve signed up for them). And we’ll get you from the hotel to the starting area on race morning. Plus, the host hotel should be within walking distance of the Expo.

How do I find my way around the starting and finishing areas?
We’ll help you! The start and finish lines are very close together, which makes it a bit easier. If you’re staying at our host hotel, it should be within walking distance of the start/finish area and we’ll lead you there in the morning. Team Prevention will have a tent at the start/finish area, so look for it if you’re coming on your own on race morning. There, you can store any extra clothing you wore, such as warm-ups. After the race, be sure to check in with us so we know that you made it okay — and we’ll have snacks for you post-race.

 

What time does the race start?
Both the full and half marathons begin at 6:15 a.m.

Is there a course time limit?
Yes, 4 hours for the half marathon and 7 hours for the full marathon—based on gun time, not chip time. That works out to the following walking paces: You must maintain an 18:19-minute-mile pace or faster to finish the half marathon in 4 hours, and a 16-minute-mile pace or faster to finish the full marathon in 7 hours. (This includes stops at portajohns, to retie your shoes, etc.) Team Prevention personnel will stay at the finish area until all our participants are accounted for. However, we can’t guarantee that you’ll receive a finisher’s medal or be able to get your official time if you finish after the official course closing time of 1:15 p.m. If you think you might be pushing up against the time limit, we suggest you carry a copy of the course route map and water/snacks with you in case directional signs and water stations are taken down—or consider signing up for the half marathon instead.

 

I signed up for the full marathon, but I want to switch to the half. Can I?
Before October 23: If you wish to switch from the full to the half, e-mail your request to , including your name and your predicted finishing time. If you’d like to upgrade to the full, send your e-mail request and marathon personnel will reply with details. The upgrade fee is . After October 23: No changes can be made in the database. You can walk the half marathon with a full marathon bib. To upgrade from the half to the full, you can pay a fee at the Expo to do so.

What’s the course like?
The full-marathon and half-marathon courses start off on the Las Vegas Strip and are united until midway through mile 10. At that point, the full splits off and heads west. The half marathon stays entirely on the Strip. The full course travels through neighborhoods and alongside a large golf course before heading back east to the Strip. The course is quite flat. The start line and finish line are in the same general area, at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino parking lot.

 

Do I need to carry my own water or will it be provided along the course?
You can carry your own if you prefer. Water stations will be located along the course, locations still to be determined. Citrus flavor Cytomax Sport Drink will also be available at all stations, and GU Energy Gels at locations TBD. If you haven’t trained with these products, though, it’s best not to ingest something new on race day. We recommend trying them out during your training if you think you want to use them during the event. If you trained with particular snacks, you should carry them with you on race day, too.

 

All this talk of water … what if I have to go to the bathroom along the way?
Portable toilets will be located at the start and finish areas, and more than 100 portable toilets will be located along the course. The portable toilets often have long lines, especially in the first few miles of the course, and it’s not unheard of for a bathroom stop to take 10 minutes. So be sure to go before you start and then try to hold out until the crowds thin after the first several miles.

 

What if I’m not able to finish my event?
Medical aid stations will be located at nearly every refreshment station located on the course as well as at the start/finish area. There should also be race personnel/volunteers at every mile marker. Medical personnel will wear red shirts. Check in with them or with volunteers at a medical aid station and they’ll help you. We’ll also give you aPreventioncontact number before the race, so we encourage you to carry a cell phone.

Can I bring my baby in a stroller? Wear my iPod?
Wheeled vehicles and dogs are not allowed on the course. Personal music devices are strongly discouraged for safety reasons.

 

What will the weather be like?
The average high temperature that day is 59?F and the average low is 38?F, but check the weather as the day approaches. It’s advisable to dress in layers so you can easily remove them as the weather gets warmer. You can check extra clothing at the Team Prevention starting-area tent before going to the start line. Or, many people wear old sweatshirts, etc., and shed them along the sidelines of the course. Discarded clothing will be donated to a local charity.
