This year the Las Vegas Marathon will be run at night. It sounds like a great idea since the strip is much more fun at night. But…for many people it’s not really night! The half marathon is planned to start at 5:30 PM and the full marathon at 4:00 PM. If I were running it that would mean that I’d be done with either event at about 7:00 PM. I’m not sure it would even be dark yet! It would probably be darker to run it at 6:00 AM like they did when I ran it in 2009.
