Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio Marathon & ½ Marathon will return the weekend of December 5 – 6, 2015. Registration is available online runrocknroll.com/san-antonio.
“We are ready to rock the ‘Alamo City’ in 2015 and encourage all runners to sign up, start training and hit the pavement with us in December,” said Megan Miller, Event Manager. “It’s the most wonderful time of the year in San Antonio over race weekend as every inch of the city is twinkling with holiday spirit. On top of the festive scenery, participants will be able to brush shoulders with running legend Meb Keflezighi on course and over race weekend.”
The event will once again feature two-days of running with the Rock ‘n’ Roll 10K on Saturday and marathon, half-marathon and 5K on Sunday. Participants can take the “Remix Challenge” by running on Saturday and any distance on Sunday to earn the coveted Remix Challenge medal in addition to each race’s finisher medals. Olympian Meb Keflezighi will run both Saturday and Sunday.
Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio Marathon & ½ Marathon will start and finish at the Alamodome. The course will take runners on a tour of San Antonio’s historical landmarks and scenic views. To keep runners motivated, live, local bands, cheerleaders and encouraging spectators will line the course. After crossing the finish line, runners are invited to join family and friends to kick back and relax at the post race Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert Series. The 10K will start at the Alamodome and finish at Alamo Plaza.
Race weekend kicks off with a free Health & Fitness Expo, where exhibitors will offer free samples, showcase the latest in running gear, sports apparel, health and nutritional information and much more.
