The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon started with a simple idea: to make running fun. Since its founding in 1998, Rock ‘n’ Roll has become the world’s largest running series, with participation from 26 American cities each year. Often called the “grandaddy” of marathons, today's participants have the option to run a full or half marathon, or even a 10k or 5k, depending on the city.
Why Choose the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series?
What’s the secret to its popularity? The Rock ‘n’ Roll Series features local rock and roll bands at every mile marker, so runners can enjoy live music along their route. In addition, they get to celebrate the end of the race with a huge headliner concert, open to the public. On June 1, 2014, San Diego will play host to the race, kicking off summer with a beat!
Racing San Diego
Beautiful San Diego weather and live bands span the city to make the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon feel more like a party than a race. The San Diego event in particular is known for its laid back, friendly attitude from runners and sponsors alike! Participants will begin in the downtown area, and move west, running the middle portion of the race along Mission Bay’s beautiful shoreline. After making the final trek across the finish line, twenty thousand runners will join the 100,000 spectators for the ultimate post-race celebration: The Finish Line Festival, headlined by Aloe Black.
