“MS MR has such an unbelievable energy on stage,” said Lyndsi Weichert, event manager. “They will definitely provide an amazing celebratory performance for our runners and San Francisco residents.”

MS MR was established in 2013 by Lizzy Plapinger and Max Hershenow who make up the indie pop duo.  Their out-of-the-box style takes them into many genres, but their sound has most been compared to Florence and the Machine and Lana Del Rey.  Their debut album, Secondhand Rapture was released in 2013 and reached #2 on the US Billboard Top Heatseekers Album Charts.

Transamerica Rock ‘n’ Roll San Francisco returns in 2016 for its 4th year with the half marathon distance.  The course will start at Golden Gate Park on the Great Highway, crossing back and forth on closed lanes of the Golden Gate Bridge, heading down Polk Street, and ending downtown at the Civic Center.  The finish line festival will be held in Civic Center Plaza, featuring a headliner performance by MS MR.

Race weekend kicks off with a free Health & Fitness Expo where runners can pick up their race weekend packet.  Exhibitors and vendors will offer free samples, showcase the latest in running gear, sports apparel, health and nutritional information and much more. The Expo takes place on Friday, April 1 from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm and Saturday, April 2 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. The Expo is free and open to the public and is located at The Moscone Center.
