It all began in San Diego in 1998 and for over 20 years, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series has made running fun by infusing each course with live bands, cheer teams and more. In 2018, we brought our best to the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon & 1/2 with more music, runner support, and community engagement every step of the way. This event has always been our Epic Summer Run, and we’re already planning on ways to make 2019 even better! This year our event will feature a Full (26.2 miles) and 1/2 (13.1 miles) Marathon, a fun 5k Race and a 1/2 Marathon Relay Race.
San Diego welcomed approximately 27,000 runners at the 2018 Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon & 1/2 Marathon. Olympians and hometown heroes, Des Linden and Meb Keflezighi, paced the half marathon encouraging runners to their goals as Full House TV Star Andrea Barber, took on leg two of relay. The Revivalists celebrated with runners and spectators at the Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert Series, but not before three of the members took on the half marathon themselves. This year's epic race will start at Balboa Park and end at a waterfront area with magnificent ocean views.
