Entertainment on the Course

Music makes up the heart and “sole” of this event. Runners will enjoy a variety of music from alternative, classic and punk rock to blues, jazz and soul along the race course. Music and entertainment set the tempo for this running party, where runners and spectators alike will be “dancin’ in the streets” to these mini-concerts.

Is your band ready to rock for thousands of athletes and spectators? We will be recruiting the best local bands from all genres to take the stage along the course.
