Rock n’ Roll Marathon | June 5

Posted on April 25, 2016

The international Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series has returned to San Diego where it all began for its 19th year, and you’re invited! Race highlights include scenic city routes, live bands on course, spirited spectators and cheerleaders, tech tees and medals for all finishers, and a FREE headliner concert. Participate in this annual event on June 3-5 as a spectator or a runner, and be sure to visit North Park for special race day discounts and offers!

Organized by Competitor Group, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series is the ‘World’s Largest Running Series’ with more than 500,000 runners taking part in 28 destination events around the world. What started as a simple idea in 1998—the idea of making running fun– soon transformed the U.S. running landscape by infusing the race course with live bands, cheer teams and entertaining water stations. The outdoor festivals encapsulate cities in their entirety and culminate with a finish line festival featuring a concert headlined by some of the best music acts around. Over the 17-year history of the series, charity partners have raised more than $300 million through the events for a variety of worthy causes. Today, the series of entertainment themed marathons and half-marathons continues to enjoy great appeal for the traveling runner, tremendous local support and has firmly established itself as a dynamic running platform.
