Runners’ reward


With the Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon returning to Sin City on Nov. 17, Vegas resorts are welcoming participating guests with exclusive pre- and post-run treats.

At MGM Grand, runners can get pampered in a Stay Well Room, which features 17 health and wellness amenities. Guests can enjoy an EMF (electromagnetic fields) protection to shield them from sleep disruptions, black-out shades to block unwanted light, an LED dawn-simulator alarm clock to gradually awaken the body and eliminate grogginess come race day, an air purification system for better breathing and a rejuvenating vitamin C-infused shower after the race to promote healthy hair and skin.

Vdara Hotel and Spa’s Official Rock ’n’ Roll Pre-Race Yoga Session, as well as the Vinyasa Flow Yoga Class, are open to marathon participants.


Select dining spots at the Mirage Hotel and Casino feature a variety of runner’s menus and discounts to fuel guests like well-oiled machines — ensuring they are locked and loaded before and after the race.

Spa Bellagio’s luxurious offerings are set to revitalize runners’ bodies after an exhausting but rewarding journey through Las Vegas’ dramatic landscapes and desert backdrops. Marathon participants can also check out exclusive race-day passes and three-day passes for other soothing spa, stretching and massage treatments.
