13 races you have to try in Las Vegas

Whether you're a seasoned runner or just barely getting started, here are 13 of our favorite racing events in Las Vegas:

Rock 'n' Roll Marathon
The Las Vegas Strip will shut down, allowing runners to enjoy the bright lights of Sin City and live music from various stages along the course. There's also a big-name headliner performance before the race starts - this year the Goo Goo Dolls are performing, and previous races had Snoop Dogg, Kid Rock, and Macklemore. The event takes place this year on Nov. 11-12, 2017 and includes 5K, 10K, and half marathon options.

PJ 5K and 1-Mile Walk
For those that just can't wait for the holidays, the PJ 5K and 1-mile walk will let participants run through the Glittering Lights at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Everyone will get milk and cookies during the race, and awards will be given to runners with the best pajamas. Speedway Children's Charities will also collect donations of new pajamas to be given to children in need. The event takes place on Nov. 19, 2017.
