What Happened in Vegas (Runner’s World: Other Voices)
By Charlene Ragsdale
This is a participant’s account of the serious issue at the Rock n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon and Half Marathon where many, many runners became violently ill. While there were apparently a number of significant problems with the race, this is by far the most disturbing, and made me angry as I read the article. It seems like Competitor Group is intent on making their races as big as they possibly can regardless of whether or not they have the infrastructure, logistics, or manpower to handle it. Just Awful!
