We’re big fans of fitness here at GEICO. You can’t walk down a hall here without encountering colleagues racking up steps on their Fitbits. So when we got a chance to sponsor the 2015 Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon & 1/2 Marathon, well, we couldn’t resist.
This event is more than just a race; it spans four days and includes an expo and a concert (performances by Kid Rock and the band Matt and Kim). And it’s in Las Vegas, which is essentially a theme park for adults! No wonder 40,000 people showed up for the fun and games!
During the evening race, the Gecko ran the first 100 meters with the elite runners, held the finish-line tape for the first male and female finishers, and gave high fives as runners crossed the finish line.
We can’t wait for the next race!
