Las Vegas Monorail Provides Only Strip Transportation During Geico Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon
Once again, the Las Vegas Monorail will be the only Strip transportation option available during the GEICO Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon & ½ Marathon, which will close Las Vegas Boulevard South when it takes place Sunday, Nov. 13. 

Year after year, thousands of runners and spectators attending the Marathon and its four days of events rely upon the Monorail for getting to and from the start and finish lines of the weekend’s races. The Monorail also has a station at the Las Vegas Convention Center, which is the site of the Marathon’s three-day Health & Fitness Expo, Nov. 10 – 12. As the most efficient and cost-effective way to navigate the Strip during the Marathon, the Monorail offers discounts up to 25 percent for multi-day passes purchased prior to Nov. 4, making it even easier to ride.

“During the 2015 Geico Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon, the Monorail had its second-busiest ridership day in the history of the system,” said Ingrid Reisman, vice president and chief marketing officer, the Las Vegas Monorail Company. “We’re happy to provide all participants with such a convenient way to navigate the Strip and activities taking place throughout race weekend. Of course, we’re also proud to be the only transportation option that travels the Strip during the race road closures.”

Added Kevin LaRue, Marketing Manager, GEICO Rock ‘n’ Las Vegas Marathon & ½ Marathon, “The Monorail has been such a valuable and convenient part of the participant experience and we hope runners will take advantage of the discounted Monorail tickets available through Nov. 4. We are also including unlimited Monorail rides in our weekend VIP Experience packages as we know that the experience of riding the Monorail is first class.”
