Coursing down the strip and by the famous sites, the Redfish ran through a city they previously had seen little of in the light of day. Live, local bands serenaded the racers and cheer squads lining the course propelled them toward the finish, where medals, swag, and entertainment awaited the fleet footed fish.

 

“I rocked Vegas,” revealed Leah O’Flynn. Having successfully run the Sun Valley Half Marathon, Leah had set a new goal of running a full marathon in Vegas. “Each time I run, it is the farthest I’ve ever run in my life. – It’s always a new record.”

Logan Knight was winner of “The Run Off” held earlier this year, a race from the city of Hailey to the city Bellevue, finishing at Mahoney’s Bar & Grill for festivities. “I decided I had better up my training for the half marathon,” reported Logan. He has been playing basketball, “I attribute my awesome race time to the hoops I shot the night before.”

“We did it for humanity and free beer,” stated Rob Reeves, CEO at Redfish Technology. Rob had been on a strict diet and training regime for months and was ready for a beer. “But seriously was the beer free?”

 

“This was all about sacrifice and discipline,” voiced Heidi Clark, a veteran Race to Robie Creek runner. “Coincidentlay the same two virtues needed to stay and shop at the Bellagio, and I’d do it again. After all it was just a ‘half’ marathon.”

 

Jon Piggins, had been carb loading for the last four months, preparing to survive the half marathon. “I’m not sure how this happened but I somehow got my arm twisted and wow, now it’s all twisted. But it was a great experience, a new achievement for sure!”
