Prerace Meeting Room ?
No room this year. Apparently the marathon did not provide enough business to Mandalay Bay.
However, the pacers have been requested to meet with Tim Kelly's group in the hallway in front of the South Seas Ballroom. I suggest you all do the same as well.
3rd floor of the Mandalay Bay South Convention Center. Same place as last year.
The point being you are indoors, far removed from the chaos of the Mandalay Bay Concourse, with access to some pretty nice, line-free bathrooms.
IMPORTANT: drop your bag off at gear check before you show up to Mandalay Bay. No one wiill guard your bag if you leave it in the hallway; too far from the finish anyways.
Recommended show times: 1:30 pm for marathoners, 2:00 pm for halfers. Fewer registrants than last year, but worse traffic--that's what's predicted.
