The Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Marathon and Half Marathon has opened registration for the 2016 race. This is the world’s largest nighttime running event, which hosted more than 45,000 runners in 2015. It will host runners this year on the weekend of November 12-13.

During the event, runners will travel down the closed lanes of Las Vegas Boulevard and the iconic Las Vegas sights, including the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign and the Fountains of Bellagio. The finish line is at the foot of the Mirage volcano.

The event is known for hundreds of runners dressed as Elvis (known as the Running Elvi). And every year the event also includes a Run-Thru Wedding Chapel where joggers cam get married or renew their vows.
