Video: Time-Lapse Glimpse of Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon

Every year, Las Vegas Boulevard, aka, the Las Vegas Strip, is closed to vehicle traffic for only two occasions: 1) The city’s epic New Year’s Eve celebration, and 2) The Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas 10K, half marathon and marathon races. Check out this 26-second time-lapse video from last year’s event that shows heavy traffic at 11 a.m., road closures and finish line set-up starting at noon, more than 35,000 runners crossing the finish line between 4:45 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. and, finally, The Strip re-opening just before midnight after everything is packed up and put away while all the runners are out celebrating their success. This year’s race weekend is scheduled for Nov. 12-13 with a new out-of-this world finisher’s medal for every runner who reaches the finish line.
