Rock n Roll Marathon Vegas
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
The Zappos Rock n Roll Marathon took place on Sunday December 2, 2012 in Las Vegas, NV. Over 30,000 runners from every state and several countries came to Sin City to compete and raise money for a good cause. The Rock n Roll Marathon series is a world class marathon organization that embeds charity into its races. This marathon was a benefit for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America.
America's newest bachelor Sean Lowe participated in the race as a part of Crohn's & Colitis Team Challenge.
Other celebrities on hand included Kate Gosselin, Nikki Reed (Twilight) and Paul McDonald (American Idol).
Kate Gosselin was very excited to take part in the marathon. "I try to run as often as I can. Running about 10 miles each time I get out," Gosselin stated.
Nikki Reed and husband Paul McDonald ran the race together. When asked what they would do if one got tired, McDonald said "We are in this together, its a big accomplishment for both of us. We will stick together and finish together." The Twilight series has just come to an end and many fans are left wondering what's next for Reed and her cast mates. "It's so freshly over I can't see it as being over. I don't think I will do another vampire series, but if they called and said another Twilight was being made I'd be the first to sign up."
The runners were very excited about the race, the energy was overflowing the streets. Many of the participants dressed up in fun costumes from Elvis to a penguin to a Viking and everything in between. The wind was very strong but that didn't seem to deter runners from competing and completing the marathon.

At the event I used a new iPhone app Lightt, the app turns still photographs into a flipbook style stream of moving photos. Take a look and get more behind the scene on the red carpet via Lightt: http://ligh.tt/aRU
