Las Vegas, Nevada, November 20, 2019 — Intermountain Health was the official healthcare partner of the 2019 Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon & ½ Marathon, and the presenting sponsor of the Health & Fitness Expo.
Known as the biggest nighttime running race in the world, the festive event took place on the strip and welcomed over 35,000 runners this past weekend, November 16-17. Intermountain Health was race ready with more than 100 medical personnel at multiple locations along the 5k, 10k, half-marathon, and full-marathon courses to take care of those in need of support.
“While the race was fun and exciting for runners, the health and wellness was the utmost priority, and we tended to the needs of roughly 700 participants,” said Warren Volker, chief clinical officer. “Once a medical need arose, we had doctors, nurses, and other clinicians ready to help.”
