HOTELS : Not yet updated for 2014
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and Calico Racing are proud to offer host hotel accomodations at their Las Vegas location for the 2013 ET Marathon! Located at 4455 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, NV 89169 the Hard Rock Las Vegas offers many restaurants, gaming, SWEET rooms, a famous pool, and is conveniently situated within 1 mile of the famous Las Vegas Strip. Hard Rock offers a 11 am checkout (late check out may be available upon request upon arrival), and is the location of the EXPO, PACKET PICK-UP, and contracted BUS transportation for the race. A taxi from the airport one way is roughly $10.
A group block of rooms has been negotiated for Friday ($129), Saturday ($129), and Sunday ($79) nights (Aug 16 thru 18) plus $22 resort fee per night and tax, double occupancy. To reserve your room please call the hotel directly at 800-473-7625 and tell them you are with "Calico Racing, LLC". OR, online by clicking the logo above. These rooms will be held until July 19, 2013. After this date the rates will only be honored if availability still exists.
I am really excited to work with Hard Rock Las Vegas for the ET Marathon and hope you'll enjoy your stay and the Calico Racing, ET Marathon experience!
Of course you can chose to stay closer to the race in the town of Rachel at the Little A'le'Inn. Go directly to their website www.aleinn.com for rates and details. The Little A'le'Inn is the finish line of all 4 distance races and is 20 miles to the start line/ gathering area for the 51K, marathon and 1/2. Please note however that transportation is not available from Rachel to the marathon and 1/2 marathon starts, as the buses will be coming from the opposite direction. Also note: The Little A'le'Inn has very few rooms! Book yours early to not be disappointed. They do also have RV and possibly camping options. Contact them directly for information.
Camping is available in the Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge, roughly 5 miles south of the town of Alamo off Highway 93, and thus about 35 miles to the start line. Camping is on a first come first served basis and there are approximately 20 sites available. Campfires and cook fires must be confined to fire rings or grills and must never be left unattended. Fires must be fully extinguished upon departure. Campsites are basic. I do not believe showers are available, and no swimming in the lake is permitted. RV hook up sites are NOT available.
