Entertainment on the Course

2016 Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach Course Bands

Music makes up the heart and “sole” of this event. Runners will enjoy a variety of music from alternative, classic and punk rock to blues, jazz and soul along the race course. Music and entertainment set the tempo for this running party, where runners and spectators alike will be “dancin’ in the streets” to these mini-concerts.

Is your band ready to rock for thousands of athletes and spectators? We will be recruiting the best local bands from all genres to take the stage along the course. Stay tuned for updates on how to apply!

Rock Around the Block Competition

Recruit Your Neighbors to Rock Around the Block and Win Up to $750!

This friendly neighborhood competition provides an opportunity for Virginia Beach residents to be a part of all the Rock ‘n’ Roll fun without having to run. It’s easy to participate! Locals, 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 toward 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 cheer station along the course. All neighborhoods will be judged on theme creativity, execution, and overall energy.

To participate in the competition and compete for cash prizes please contact rnrvb@competitorgroup.com with your neighborhood captain’s name, email, phone number, cheer station theme and proposed course location by Sunday, August 23rd.
