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. 9 – 11.
