The article offers suggestions to improve the 2009 Las Vegas Marathon which was sold by Devine Racing to the Competitor Group that organizes Rock n' Roll Marathons all over the U.S. Runners are cold and ready to run, and allegedly do not need any distractions such as celebrity masters of ceremony at the start of the race. Runners need on-course entertainment on each of the last 20 miles and not on the first six miles. And lastly, do not make the race too gimmicky since the marathon will work as a serious run in a party town like Las Vegas, Nevada.
