When to book the hotel?

If you have decided to run the race, it is best to plan in advance. Book the hotels before the opening of the registration is publicly announced. Hotels like Hyatt, Marriot in the area cost around $250-$300 or more for one night. So if sharing the room is an option, share it with a few friends.

While two people in a room can cost you $125-$150/night, four people in the same room can reduce your cost to $62.50-$75 per night. This means that if you stay for two nights, it will cost around $125-$150.
