GEICO Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas giving back to those affected by the Las Vegas tragedy. A donation page has been set up encouraging all sponsors, expo vendors and participants to join in the efforts organized by Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak, a long supporter of the marathon in Las Vegas. All participants will have the opportunity to purchase a special #VegasStrong Brooks technical-tee with 100-percent of the proceeds going to the Las Vegas Victims' Fund.

The marathon and half marathon will now start on Las Vegas Boulevard, adjacent to New York-New York Hotel and Casino. There will also be a special on-course tribute planned with a memorial mile on the Las Vegas Strip where participants can pay their respects during the marathon and half marathon. In lieu of course bands and amplified sound, over the first 2.5 miles of the course will be an extended moment of silence that will pay tribute to the victims and families affected. In addition, there will be a #VegasStrong signing wall lining Las Vegas Boulevard, which all participants will have the chance to sign at the Health & Fitness Expo, and race organizers are encouraging everyone to wear their #VegasStrong t-shirt to be illuminated.
