Rock ‘n‘ RollVirginia Beach Sep 02-03 / 2017


Join The Celebration

In 2017, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series will be celebrating 20 Years Running. It all began in San Diego in 1998. 2017 will also mark Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon’s 17th year with the series since its inaugural race in 2001. Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach was our very half-marathon-only event, helping to position 13.1 miles as a genuine and now hugely popular race distance. Held each year on Labor Day weekend in conjunction with the American Music Festival, half marathon runners are treated to a 3-day music festival in addition to miles of music on course and a grand finish along the oceanfront Boardwalk. Join us in VB in 2017 for our series-wide celebration of 20 Years Running!
