2016 Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach: Course Preview

We’ve put together this Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon course tour video, sponsored by Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series partner GEICO, for your preparation and viewing pleasure. After all, course maps are super helpful when you’re trying to figure out exact mile markers for spectators, specific streets you’ll be running down, elevation changes and nutrition station locations. But there’s nothing like seeing a hyper-lapsed, turn-by-turn drive of your course and all the beautiful things it has waiting for you!

Pop-ups throughout this Virginia Beach course tour video offer pro-tips for both local and visiting runners. With tourist tips ranging from must-see sights like the Norwegian Lady, to fun facts (like, did you know Virginia Beach is home to 800,000 gallons of aquarium and habitat space for marine life and also holds the record for longest pleasure beach in the world, attracting nearly 2.75 million people each year?) … this video is not only fun, but educational too!

Are you feeling inspired by the Virginia Beach course tour video you just watched? Don’t miss this gorgeous 13.1-mile run taking you from tree-lined streets and closed-off main thoroughfares to an epic finish on the boardwalk. The post-race party combines with the annual American Music Festival right on the beach! You’ll celebrate with free beer, tons of other enthusiastic runners, and friends and family (if you successfully convince them to come run with you or cheer you on)!

We can’t think of a better way to commemorate your summer and celebrate over Labor Day weekend. Now, all that’s left is to sign up, lace up and get ready to rock out in Virginia Beach.
