Ryno Running returns with its annual “Las Vegas 5K Presented by Pinkberry Las Vegas” hosted by MTV host and BMX rider TJ Lavin on Saturday, May 12, 2012 at 8:30 a.m. Beginning at Town Square the 5K (3.1 mile) course is straight down Las Vegas Boulevard around the world famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign and back. Registration costs $35 with runners competing for a cash purse set at $5,000, including $1,000 to the first place men’s and women’s finishers.

“Whether you’re a world-class runner anticipating a fast course or a recreational runner excited to get a picture taken half way at the ‘Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas’ sign, participants can be assured they will have the ultimate race experience,” said Ryan Geurts, president of Ryno Running.

Runners will have the option of briefly posing and having their picture taken in front of the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign during the race. Professional photographers will be in place to capture the moment. The race will begin and end at the northwest parking lot of the Town Square, where local vendors and entertainment will be stationed for the post-race expo.
