Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon running across the globe


The best way to pull off an epic run is to somehow make it fun. Granted, a 26.2-mile marathon (or even a 13.1-mile half marathon) isn’t always a barrel of laughs, but it doesn’t have to be a grueling, joyless ordeal either.

Every year, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series of events is host to more runners than any other running event in the U.S. And with good reason: the event stops in a number of cities across the U.S. and beyond such as Chicago, Seattle, Denver, Los Angeles, New York, Las Vegas, and San Francisco. (They also happen to be plenty of fun.) Participants can choose between shorter runs — 5k, 10k, or portions of a relay – or go for the gusto with half or full marathons in any of the participating cities.

At every stop there’s a two-day health and fitness expo that features plenty of the latest in running technology, health and nutrition information, running gear and much more. Whether you’re only setting out for a 5k or doing the full marathon, it’s key to ensure you’re prepared as best as possible.

Like the feeling of pride that comes with wearing a medal around your neck? Check out the Run for the Bling feature, which allows runners participating in multiple Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon events to combine runs and earn special medals on the tour.

And yes, there’s actual rock ‘n’ roll (and more) to be heard — previous entertainers to have been featured at the finish line concert include the Goo Goo Dolls, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Brad Paisley, Train, Pat Benatar and more.

And while there’s plenty of great entertainment to be found before, during and after your run, you can also feel good knowing you’ve helped raise a portion of the $310+ million raised for various charities across the U.S.
