Rock ‘n’ Run Idol Contest

Calling all runners and those who inspire others to run! We are looking for the 2017 Rock n Run Idol, someone who has a great running story and will be running the Affidea Rock ‘n’ Roll Dublin Half Marathon and help us recruit more runners to join them.

In 2016, we launched the first ever Rock ‘n’ Run Idol competition and sent one lucky winner on a VIP trip to Las Vegas. Following its incredible success, we are delighted to announce the competition is back, bigger and better than before!

Whether you’re a competitive runner or made a new year’s promise to complete your first 5K, we want to hear from you. Simply enter below…



How to Enter

Send us your personal story or nominate someone you know. We are looking for compelling stories that provide inspiration, motivation and reveal the perseverance it takes to reach a goal. The deadline for applications is 12th March.  We will follow the journey of five candidates, one from each province, plus Dublin. The winner will be selected by public vote.


The Selection Panel

A panel of judges will help us select the final five contestants. They are a well rounded group, some of whom we hope you’ll recognize.

The Package

The Rock Idol winner will be flown to Las Vegas, USA and receive unparallel VIP treatment at our flagship event, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon & ½ on 12th November 2017. There you and a guest will experience running the Las Vegas Strip at night! The Rock n Run Idol package includes three nights hotel, invitations to private parties, VIP lounge access and more.
