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. In the UK and Ireland, the series has found homes in Liverpool and Dublin, bringing the unique blend of miles, music, medals and moments to runners across the country. 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. 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.
