Explore global destinations, one step at a time. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series combines running, travel and entertainment, providing a world-class event atmosphere for participants and spectators alike. The Series originated in 1998 in San Diego, CA and now visits more than 30 cities annually, including Las Vegas, Chicago, Nashville, Washington DC, Madrid and Mexico City.
Live bands, cheer teams and high-energy volunteer groups line the streets to power your block party from the start to the finish line. Afterwards, you’ll celebrate with family, friends and fellow runners at a post-race festival featuring a finish line concert. Previous Rock ‘n’ Roll headliners include some of music’s biggest names like the Goo Goo Dolls, Train, Pat Benatar, Brad Paisley and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
Each Rock ‘n’ Roll event offers multiple distance options ranging from 5Ks to marathons, with bling to match. Take on two days of running and earn the new Remix Challenge Medal, or join us in multiple cities on Tour to earn one of our unique Heavy Medals!
Whether conquering individual goals or the top of the sport, the Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon Series is dedicated to the moments that give meaning to your miles.
