Rock and Roll Half Marathon 2016

Rock ‘n’ Roll is a series of marathons and half-marathons that take place throughout the United States. The races feature live music, cheering spectators, and scenic views as participants run through cities such as San Diego, San Antonio, and Boston. The race series has also expanded to include international events in Madrid, Scotland and Dublin.
