Las Vegas may be known as the gambling capital of the world but it is now slowly transforming into a ‘city for health buffs’. Now a regular host to large marathon events as well as health and fitness expositions for people who are conscious about their overall wellbeing, Las Vegas has been transformed into a health-conscious mecca for gym and running fanatics.
On November 11 – 13 this year, Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas will be holding a 3-day Health & Fitness expo and Marathon. The Health & Fitness Expo is where participants of the marathon can get their race packs, which include race numbers, a t-shirt, and gear bag.
Does this sound interesting to you? If you’re planning to make a trip to Las Vegas this year, and are a keen marathon runner or just enjoy fitness expos, you may want to hold off until November. There will be lots of speakers at the event and trainers to teach people easy, everyday exercises that can have a huge impact on your health and overall wellbeing.
Here are some of the notable professionals that will attend the Health & Fitness expo: CEO at Fitness STAR International Michael Ryan, Operations Manager/personal Trainer at Dumbbells Too Adriel Borghesi, and Nevada Outreach Coordinator at Hamilton Relay Tearra Donovan.
At the marathon, runners will pass by luxury casinos and hotels including the Mandalay Bay Casino, Caesars Palace, and Wynn Casino en route to the finish line. The marathon typically takes around 5 hours to complete for elite runners. Those who are interested in participating are encouraged to sign up as early as now as slots are filling up quickly. Over 15,000 runners participate in the marathon annually, with a huge number of the total flying in from overseas.
Fitness expos have been incredibly rewarding for Las Vegas of late. These expos have joined the likes of Comic Con and high-profile tech events as just some of the uber popular annual showcases that the city have began staging to generate bigger revenues. Online gaming, particularly virtual bingo sites, have become really popular again thanks to its enticing prizes like shopping spree tickets and cash deposit boosts. Since Las Vegas casinos have huge operational costs and simply cannot offer free gaming credits and big prizes like online casino and bingo providers do so often, Vegas’ casinos are looking at alternative ways to generate revenue streams. In this case, the Las Vegas’ Marathon and Health & Fitness Expo is just one of the ways they have looked to counter the market share online bingo and casino sites now command in the industry.
