CONTRACTED BUS SERVICE ~ the best way to travel!
Alternative to driving:Contracted bus transportation is available from the host hotel in Las Vegas to and from the race for an additional cost of $30 round trip per person. This will cover round trip transportation to/ from the race's start and finish. This will save a total of roughly 350 mile of driving and $50+ of gas. Plus of course you can get into the Alien spirit of things swapping stories with other runners! Buses will pick up and return to the host hotel, the HARD ROCK HOTEL located at 4455 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, NV 89169. The host hotel is also the location of packet pick up. Buses will load at 8:30pm and be ready to depart at 8:45pm (8/4) from Las Vegas. Buses will return from Rachel as a full bus of runners is ready following the event. I am estimating 11 buses for 2012 so departures back to Las Vegas after the race should be pretty frequent starting at ROUGHLY 3am- but will be dictated by a FULL bus being ready to depart.
