RE: Rock & Roll Las Vegas backlash
My experience was exactly the same at RnR San Antonio. I started in Corral 1, but I only learned on race day that Corral 1 wasn't the "elite" corral. I'll admit that I completely bombed that last half in the heat, but I'm not sure why my 2:40 seed time didn't get me ahead of Corral 1 when my actual (much slower) finishing time got me top 15 (there were more than 100 people lined up in the "elite" area). This wouldn't be a problem except that they moved all the the Corrals up to the line 15 minutes before the start making it impossible to do strides or even move. There were also people with numbers in the 20,000s lined up next to me wearing headphones and Nike Shox.
The race was an absolute mess when the half and full courses merged at miles 11 and 23. I had to weave may way through hundreds (maybe thousands) of hobby-joggers running 2:30+ for the half marathon and paying no attention to the cones that were supposed to separate the two courses.
There was also a $10 parking fee at the race expo... WTF?
