Rock Around the Block Competition

Recruit Your Neighbors to Rock Around the Block and Win Up to $1,000!

This year is our 19th year running in San Diego and we want to continue to celebrate and showcase the local community to over 30,000 runners. This friendly neighborhood competition provides an opportunity for San Diego residents to be a part of all the Rock ‘n’ Roll fun without having to run. It’s easy to participate! Recruit your fellow neighbors to take to the streets on race day with a unique and spirited block theme. Your job is to keep runners and walkers motivated and entertained as they make their way past your neighborhood/station towards the finish line. Dream up your theme, create your props, organize your costumes and get ready to shine – your goal is to create the best and most fun motivational station along the course. All neighborhoods will be judged on theme creativity, execution, and overall energy, and the top groups will receive awards, cash prizes, public recognition, and bragging rights! Full details available here.

To participate in the competition and compete for cash prizes please complete the online application here and send the completed application to rnrsd@competitorgroup.com by Friday, May 6.
