Meet Cheryl!


In 2007, #RnRPhilly runner Cheryl, from Delaware, wanted a milestone event to commemorate her milestone 40th birthday. She chose to run her very first half marathon.

“I chose the Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon because it was close and I was nervous enough to begin with and didn’t want to have to add travel,” she said. “I chose the Rock ‘n’ Roll Series because it seemed fun and motivating … music and people!”

Since then, Cheryl has completed many other races, including marathons, and has participated in Rock ‘n’ Roll races in Washington, DC, Providence and Virginia Beach.

This year, 10 years later, Cheryl will return to Philadelphia and run in the 2017 American Association for Cancer Research Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon to celebrate another milestone: her 50th birthday.

Now, share your story to be part of the celebration of all of the moments that have made up the 20 Years Running of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series!
